As the sun is shining we’ve been getting stuck into the garden. The aim is to create a wildlife paradise in our back garden.
In our last house that we rented we were lucky to spot foxes, woodpecker, jays, long tailed tits, bullfinch a sparrowhawk and frogs.
We started with a blank slate of lawn when we bought this house so we started digging…
We planted some fruit trees and bushes. We also put up a metal tree full of bird feeders.
We dug a veg patch and surrounded it with stone slabs. In it we sowed carrots, onions and peppers.
The garage had a trellis so we filled it with nesting materials for the birds. In the corner you can see a bug hotel!
We created lots of places to hide in the pond and made a pebbled area for animals to drink from.
As we are creating a green roof on the top of the garage, we are collecting more plants for that and other areas of the garden.
Watch this space for more developments and wildlife sightings! 🙂
