This course will cover basic garden designs and how to maximise the layouts of your garden. We will be looking at features that can be installed in a garden such as miniature stag beetle stumpery, willow obelisks, willow fence, butterfly feeder, bird and bat boxes and much more. We will be looking at different species of plants and materials you can use in your garden to encourage all sorts of wildlife. There will be lots of ideas and tips. It will also include a guided walk around the nature reserve looking at different habitats, trees and wildflowers and maybe an orchid or two.
