A recipe for wildlife gardens

The key ingredients for creating a wildlife-attracting garden
If you wish to make your garden more attractive to wildlife, you could introduce:
  • A tall mature tree, native to the area
  • A patch of natural mulch for beetles and worms
  • A clump of dense shrubs where birds can shelter
  • Nectar plants for honeyeaters
  • A cat-proof birdbath
  • A frog-friendly pond or bog with unpolluted water
  • A warm sheltered corner for lizards
  • Local daisies for butterflies.
Gardens for Wildlife program gardens may include some or all of these ingredients.
