Wildlife is everywhere
With 15 million gardens in the UK at a combined size of around 270,000ha, gardens are a vital and significant habitat, providing food, water, shelter, breeding and nesting areas and a way to travel from one place to another.
There are many very simple ways to welcome wildlife whatever the size of land you have in the town or the countryside.

Gardening advice from Trust volunteers
We recognise that making space for nature is often more easily said than done and can be daunting for those just starting out on their wilder journey. No matter how much you read, sometimes talking to someone can give you a lot more confidence. Our Wilder Garden Champions are here to help you. They are gardening volunteers, vetted and trained by the Trust who will be able to give you free personal advice on how to make your spaces wilder that will benefit both you and nature.
