planting to attract wildlife
Wildlife Garden, Sedgeford
The owners of this
large garden wanted an informal garden to attract wildlife and seating areas
to sit and enjoy the sun and the view of the brook.
We have added
structure with a curvy lawn area bordered by flower beds and wilder, rough grass
areas. The planting includes species to attract birds and butterflies and a
reed bed has been created near the shoreline.
A large patio near the house provides space for a table and chairs. The patio
is made from a variety of materials, many of which were already in the garden,
such as curvy roof tiles and the floor bricks.
A deck overhanging the shoreline was created to provide a secluded seating area
at the bottom of the garden.
