Gardens are a haven for many species, particularly if the garden is managed sensitively with wildlife in mind. In the spring and summer butterflies and reptiles will use the refuges we have created for them. Amphibians and invertebrates will use rough areas and log piles for hibernation and birds are encouraged by providing nest boxes and a year round food source in the hedgerows and uncut seed heads.
