Great article. I am a huge advocate of wildlife friendly gardens, encouraging all my clients to plant a mix of natives and non-natives to provide shelter and food for wildlife, include some form of water feature, whether it be a natural pond, bird bath or water bowl, and to have a go at growing their own, composting and water harvesting if space allows. I feel it's my responsibility as a designer and gardener to encourage my clients to make their gardens the most sustainable and environmentally friendly that they can be.


Planting for pollinators:




Provision of water:


Permeable surfaces:



A responsible garden doesn't have to look like an 'eco' garden - it can be super stylish as well as wildlife and environmentally friendly!

Such a trendy article. Congrats! It's not that difficult to be in harmony with the fauna and flora. This article provide everything you need to know about it. Let's get inspired! It makes your life easier when you just woke up and you can admire you garden full of plants and animals.

I advise everyone to create a water spot and not to delimit the garden by a fence like that animals are able to come to drink.

Nature is life, protect it!

Congrats again for the article
