Long grass

A mini-jun­gle of grass stems of­fers many more hide­aways than a man­i­cured lawn. Added to­gether they give wildlife a greater num­ber of bed­rooms, re­duc­ing their chances of be­ing dis­cov­ered.

Pent­house suite

In­sect ho­tels, bro­ken ter­ra­cotta pots or stacks of tiles all pro­vide dry, safe homes for la­dy­birds

and soli­tary bees.

Easy ac­cess

Ground­wan­der­ing hedge­hogs, frogs, toads and slow-worms have a tough time ne­go­ti­at­ing fences and walls. Just cut some gaps in the bot­tom of fences (no more than 13cm/5in square).
