Wild your Garden. (By: Jim & Joel Ashton)
A practical guide to rewilding your outdoor space with advice, inspiration, and step-by-step projects.
Join the rewilding movement and fill your outdoor space with nature. Wilding your garden will create a little nature reserve and help increase the number of habitats for our wildlife.
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 are experts at designing wildlife-friendly gardens, and in Wild Your Garden , 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.
Most importantly, Wild Your Garden will show you the beauty and rewards of sharing your space with nature.
