No matter how large or small, gardens play a vital role in wildlife conservation as well as providing a cool, shady retreat for people on a hot day.
Watching birds, butterflies, frogs and other critters come to your garden is a delightful way to spend time and to help you deal with the pressures of modern living.
However, some gardens are much more appealing to wildlife than others.
A wildlife friendly garden can play a vital role in conservation.
With the right plantings and management, wildlife will come to any garden, whether it is a balcony, a small suburban garden, a large garden or acreage.
Wildlife friendly gardens have plants that have seeds and pollens that attract insects and birds.
Water features can attract frogs, so it’s ideal to include some in your wildlife haven.
Bees can be a great benefit to your garden as they help produce flowers.
Landscaping and land clearing is destroying Australian Native bee food sources and nest sites.
You can attract bees to your garden by planting nectar-rich flowers and creating nesting areas in your garden such as, Lavender, Flowering gum, Tea tree Leptospermum, Purple Coral Pea Hardenbergia violacea, Grevillia Pink Surprise, Sage Salvia officinalis, Native Rosemary Westringia fruticosa and Bottlebrush Callisteon.
