Back garden wildlife harmony

One of the best parts of nature is that wildlife and plants are able to harmoniously exist together, but most people are left wondering how they can recreate this harmony in their own back garden.  There are a few things you can do if you want to attract more wildlife into your garden.

First of all, instead of filling up your garden with plants from the greenhouse, you need to brighten your landscape up with some wild flowers because they will attract insects and bees.

The Bumblebee Conservation Trust is asking gardeners to plant more shrubs and trees with sweet smelling blossoms in order to help attract more bees into gardens so that the decline of bumblebees is halted.

Second, you can construct a wildlife pond in the backyard and does not even have to be too fancy, something as simple as a dustbin lid with water in it will help attract birds to bathe and drink.  However, if you want to spruce up the pond a little bit you can consider adding some sloping edges and wild flowers to it which will help attract toads, frogs, dragonflies, and newts.

Next, you will want to add some hedges and trees to your garden as space permits and maybe even a native UK tree such as a rowan or silver birch since this will help attract birds that need food, shelter, and areas to roost into your garden.  At the same time, a hedge that produces berry will also attract birds along with smaller mammals that are looking for a consistent place to find food.
