How to in­vig­o­rate a church­yard

Country Life Every Week - - Visual Treasures -

Al­ways clear up grass cut­tings and never use chem­i­cals

Sow yel­low rat­tle to sup­press vig­or­ous grasses

Leave small piles of dead wood to en­cour­age small in­ver­te­brates and vis­it­ing hedge­hogs

Tol­er­ate bats and in­stall swift boxes

Try to strike a bal­ance be­tween ne­glect and ex­ces­sive tidi­ness

Leave small plants and lichens on walls and mon­u­ments and keep tufts of grass around grave­stones for rep­tiles and am­phib­ians

Use a scythe for easy hay-mak­ing and to min­imise harm to wildlife
