With indoor life becoming the norm, spending some time in your garden may seem the only way to get regular outdoor time. Animal lovers across the country may be looking for ways to interact more with the limited amount of nature they can experience. With this mind, we look into how you can turn your garden into an oasis of wildlife.
GET PLANTING | CREATING A HOME
When you move into a new house, you look to create a ‘vibe.’ A vibe is different going from person to person, be you a minimalist or dream of recreating the Mediterranean Revival Architecture Style; you simply want to make your house feel like a home.
With wildlife, creating that ‘vibe’ is essential to them feeling at home in your garden. Thankfully the British Wildlife Committee (is that a thing?) don’t dream of the Mediterranean Revival Architecture Style (may need a source on this?) A garden containing hedges, wildflowers and if space with trees create can begin to create the infrastructure necessary to make your garden feel at home!
GET FEEDING | ATTRACTING THEM TO YOUR HOME
Wow, the home you’ve made in your garden sure looks swell! Why aren’t they coming in you ask? Well it’s simply down to instincts. Even with the most well decorated outdoor houses, most wildlife will only give your home a flying visit before heading off. What you need to really bring the animals down is the simple offering of food.
Food is the key to life; it brings happiness down to our very soul! For wildlife it’s even more, it’s the key to survival. Setting up your outdoor home to contain a constant source of food will definitely get the attention of birds fluttering by!
Setting up feeders in your garden is a sure-fire way to get all sorts of wildlife into your garden. Setting up feeders with seeds, peanuts & even fruit is a fantastic way to please your visitors! We also recommend setting up Fat Ball feeders as well, which allow them to get the fat and energy reserves they need to keep them going throughout the day.
Thankfully, Brown’s have recently begun to supply a huge range of feeders and food (Seeds, Nuts & Fat Balls) to get you set-up to really begin attracting new guests. Click the image below!
GET DECORATING | KEEPING THEM AT HOME
Aww this is fantastic; all kinds of birds are visiting my garden now! Look at that Blue Tit eating; adorable! Oh, he’s leaving already? How rude. Getting your newfound visitors to stay or at least be a regular visitor takes that little bit extra. Thankfully here at Brown’s we’ve got you covered on that as well.
Setting your garden with little extra touches goes a long way! Adding simple items like a Bird Bath helps really set up that home feeling. Also setting up your outdoor home to be diverse to all species of wildlife really brings that sense of togetherness that nature tends to offer. Why not add a Bee or Insect Box? You can even look to add a Hedgehog home to offer them a safe haven in the winter. We all know by now how important bees are to our ecosystem, so setting them up with the tools to survive will really help your garden thrive! Brown’s supply a lot of what you need to get you going.
