Increasing Biodiversity & Bird Life

Increasing Biodiversity & Bird Life

If you want a diversity of insects and birds in your garden you cannot use chemicals, herbicides and pesticides. As your garden becomes more diverse, insect numbers will be controlled by their predators in your garden.

Creating a balanced garden with a canopy of trees, a middle-storey of large shrubs and an under-storey with thickets of small shrubs, ground covers, grasses and wildflowers will help attract the greatest number of birds. In this way you provide birds with food, shelter and nesting sites.

A large dead tree trunk or group of logs creates an eye-catching feature in the garden as well as habitat and a refuge for small animals, such as lizards and insects.

Fairy Wren can help you grow a range of indigenous or native plant varieties that will suit your area, attract a wide range of native bird species and encourage biodiversity in your garden.
