The Garden - Nature's reserve on your doorstep

These days there are key housing developments happening around the United Kingdom, some of them look like a concrete jungle while others look like a work of art, but for those people lucky enough to have a beautiful garden either at the front or back of the house it can be quite exciting making it look nice and especially seeing the sometimes invisible creatures living inside. Here is a short article discussing the benefits of a garden, not only as a place for quiet reflection, catching some sun, relaxing with friends or just a nature reserve for birds, animals and other wildlife....

A garden can be a great refuge for birds and animals such as squirrels to play in, it is a great artificial countryside providing a comfortable sanctuary which allows wildlife to exploit it for food and shelter. Birdtables attract all kinds of variety of birds and provides food especially in the winter months when it gets cold and dark a lot earlier than the rest of the year.

A garden hedge can provide a nice shelter for birds to burrow in, nest and shelter away from the cold and frost while a pond provides a nice cosy home for tadpoles (I used to keep tadpoles and baby snails when I was a child), frogs and fish to breed balancing out the Ecosystem.

For people who do not have a garden, there is always the opportunity of visiting nearby green spaces such as parks, some people have allotments in the city or outside in the country and others opt to keep plants and flowers indoors transforming the inside of the house into an indoor garden where they have artificially running water, fish tanks, aquariums or potted plants bringing nature inside transforming sometimes dull surroundings into a green haven.
