Nature Strategy for Le Haut Genet
We have decided to build on the beautiful rural position of LHG and enhance the opportunities to encourage wildlife to nest/hang around.
Plant crab apple, rowan, hawthorn, dog rose, ivy, and honeysuckle
Do not cut right up to the boundaries – leave a small section of wild grass/weeds/etc
Compost kitchen waste, wood burner ash, and some rotting wood
Sow native wild flowers
Do not cut the lawn behind the wooden barn too low to encourage beetles etc
Install small pond to encourage frogs, toads, and provide water supply for birds and animals
Ensure wildlife access ways round the garden.
Install 6 bird boxes
Install 1 bat box
Install 1 bee/ladybird house
Install hedgehog shelter
Minimise/eliminate the use of chemicals in the garden
