Wild Your Garden: Create a sanctuary for nature

£14.99

If we all made space for wildlife in our garden, we’d transform levels of biodiversity and help combat wildlife habitat loss, plummeting pollinator numbers, and carbon emissions. But it’s not just a question of letting the weeds take over – there’s an art and balance to rewilding a garden well so that you can enjoy it too. The Butterfly Brothers (Jim and Joel Ashton) are experts at designing wildlife-friendly gardens, and in this book, they show you how to work with nature, support wildlife, and create a self-maintaining, no-dig balance of planting. Transform a paved-over yard into a lush oasis, create refuges to welcome endangered species, or change a high-maintenance lawn into a mini-meadow with the potential to absorb carbon and air pollution. The projects don’t require specialist gardening knowledge or lots of land, so whatever size space you have, you can rewild your own little corner of the planet.
