5 Ways To Make Your Landscaping Wildlife Friendly

Many landscape designers love the animal kingdom every bit as much as they love the plant kingdom. For this reason, instead of simply creating their landscape designs and implementing it with no thought for any wildlife, they take care to ensure that their garden becomes a wildlife-friendly environment.

If you are also someone who wants to ensure that any landscaping you carry out makes your garden a welcome haven for all sorts of species, then read on and we will explain to you 5 ways in which you can make this become a reality.

Limit The Use Of Pesticides And Other Chemicals

Whilst we would give this advice to any landscaper in any circumstances, it is even more applicable when you want your garden to become somewhere where wildlife can visit and do so safely. The last thing that will encourage them to do so is harmful and even poisonous chemicals. There are plenty of non-chemical alternative pesticides that you can purchase or make at home yourself, that will do the job just as well.

It might seem somewhat contradictory talking about killing bugs and insects, when they too are part of the animal kingdom, and it is a point worth dwelling on. The answer is that not every creature has your garden’s best interests in mind and instead of it being ravaged so that no other wildlife could benefit from it, better to at least get rid of the unwelcome guests using natural means as opposed to chemical ones.
