Caring for the planet is important and we need to make sure that we do all that we can in order to preserve the planet for the future. If you have a garden, there are plenty of things that you can do in order to help the wildlife thrive – here are some ideas to help you…
Grow a Wild Area – When we keep our lawns short, this does not give much space for nature. There are certain types of flowers and plants that help all types of creatures, so having an area that is not only spared from a lawnmower, but is also home to many native flowers and plants can really help lots of species, from slowworms to butterflies.
Plants like cornfield flowers, to stinging nettles are great for wildlife and creating an area like this in the garden that is uninterrupted and left for wildlife is one of the best ways to help.
Plant Trees – Trees are an essential part of life on earth, and they need to be preserved. Planting trees that are native to the UK provides both food and shelter to many species. If you want to have a tree that is already grown, you can get one from somewhere like this https://www.theplantcollector.com/collections/mature-trees where you will find mature trees for sale.
Build a Pond – To help a diverse range of wildlife find a haven in your garden, as well as adding a beautiful garden feature, build a pond. A pond doesn’t have to be large to provide a habitat – even a small garden pond can be a home to frogs, toads, newts and dragonflies.
