Have you always wanted to have a garden that is easy to maintain but is also versatile and offers interest to your whole family?
Do you love the outdoors and want to enjoy the wonder of everything nature has to show? Create a garden that will be full of life, growth and movement. Follow our guidelines, and you can have a garden that makes you happy and amazed all year round.
Invite the Wildlife
Living in the countryside, you are more likely to have animal visitors in your yard. Still, you can also welcome wildlife in your garden regardless of where you live. Mount birdhouses or feeders in your backyard and you will soon have winged friends to visit. You can also introduce a pond or a birdbath for birds to bathe in and drink out of. Build insect hotels or rock gardens for small creatures.
Embrace the Growth
Creating a wildlife garden is easy. Let your grass and bushes grow out of shape, and do not rake away all the fallen leaves and branches. They are excellent building materials for animals to make nests, and they provide shelter and shade for smaller creatures.
The more shrubbery and foliage you have, the more hiding places the tiny creatures can find in your garden.
Trees allow animals such as squirrels to climb on and birds to rest in, but you can also have other climbing places like old ladders or a fence. Grow flowers that invite butterflies or bees and watch them fly around your garden.
Enjoy and Be Inspired
Remember to have a relaxing spot for yourself and your family in the garden also. Have loungers or set up a hammock to lie in. It is fun to watch the different animals visit and see them enjoy the garden as much as you do.
