And so with this in mind we are using wildlife habitats in each new design and offering our regular maintenance customers these bat, bird and bug boxes.
Birds, bats and bugs such as lady birds and lacewings will feed on pests found in the garden, and are a vital link in a healthy ecosystem, and a healthy garden. And so by offering shelter in your garden, you will in turn bring a natural pest control.
The students at Haylands farm are making these boxes from sustainable IOW timber, and leaving them untreated to benefit their wild inhabitants. Haylands farm is a local charity that assists young people with learning difficulties.
This project is proving very positive for all involved, and not only the wildlife! We and the farm are selling the boxes for £7.50, and each purchase will help the farm step closer to being financially sustainable.
