Native Gardens are Suffolk based, and have been established for 13 years. We are here to help you create the perfect environment within your garden to encourage wildlife to visit you.
Create a nectar rich area, we can help you do this by making flower borders with the correct species to attract the bees and butterflies. Sow a Cornflower meadow to provide a swathe of colour and scent, or a long term wildflower meadow which improves each year to provide a fantastic area for insects, small mammals, to further up the food chain to Barn Owls.
Adding a pond with the right marginal and aquatic species to any area, and it will act like a magnet to your resident wildlife. In the first year you can expect to see Water Boat-men, Diving Beetles and Water Fleas. It also becomes a valuable water source for gardens birds, small mammals and possibly grass snakes.
Planting new woodland areas and hedges for aminity, firewood, or timber for a combined future use and wildlife habitat. Our very experienced Forester/Tree Specialist with over 20 years of working with trees can help you decide which species are best suited for your site and provide planting plans for the area you would like Native Gardens to plant.
Living Willow structures gives an interesting feature to your wildlife garden, dens for the children to play in, or a soft screen to break up a garden or to add some privacy. If there is a shape that you wish to have, please talk to us to see what we can come up with.
In addition to creating wildlife gardens, we aslo supply anything needed to create your own. From the wildflower plugs and bare-root plants to bird feeders and hibernation boxes. We are happy to talk you through any process if you are too far away for us to make a visit - so please ask!
What to be aware of at this time of year
If you're wanting to create a wildlife oasis within your own garden, now is the time to start planning. Whether it's a Cornflower Meadow, Pond, planting Native Trees, Living Willow Structures or Hedging we are here to guide you through each stage and provide you with the right products.
With the late start in the season, it is even more critical that our gardens have a good supply of nectar rich flowers within our flower borders and meadows. Wildflower such as Granny Bonnet, Scabious and Campions are attractive for either.
