Creating a natural habitat is an effective method of transforming difficult areas of the garden, such as those with poor sunlight or drainage. A dedicated wildlife area planted with native plants, shrubs and trees will provide foliage, nectar, berries, seeds, and nuts that many species of wildlife require to survive and thrive.

Heritage Environmental Contractors are specialists in this area and can help to develop natural areas in your garden which will provide increased interest and diversity. We can provide help and advice on sustainable gardening methods which will help conserve precious resources and reduce the use of chemicals and pesticides. 

Simple methods include:

Bullet Mulching
Bullet Supplementing lawned areas with wild plants
Bullet Planting drought tolerant plants
Bullet Preserving water through recycling ‘grey’ water and using water collectors

Bullet point Use native trees and plants. Plant varieties that flower throughout the year alongside evergreen species.
Bullet point Dead logs and leaf litter. Leaving a pile of logs and not being too tidy in the autumn can support a vast variety of wildlife including beetles, frogs, toads.
Bullet point Delay cutting back perennials until the spring. The seed heads that remain provide valuable food for birds and other animals through the winter. The stems and foliage also provide valuable shelter for hibernating insects such as Lacewings and Ladybirds who are valuable predators of aphids.
