One of the most common problems faced by garden owners is garden pests. By encouraging birds, insects and small mammals to live in their gardens, they will be able to control garden pests. Gardens make the perfect homes for wildlife. For example, garden ponds are great for conserving amphibian and aquatic wildlife.
As a garden owner who want to make wildlife feel safe and at home in your garden, you need to create space for them to live. Your garden will be the home of many different animals including insects and birds. Insects are very essential to any garden. Not only are they responsible for pollination but they also provide food for the birds that live in your garden.
In order to provide a home for insects, you can leave rotting firewood in your garden. Holes can be drilled into these logs which will create nesting space and shelter for insects. Birds and bats can be encouraged to nest and rest in your garden by creating bird and bat boxes. (more...)
