The Nature of Gardens

Our ordinary household gardens are good for wildlife, and that’s great for us. This is a report written and researched by Bioregional and commissioned by B&Q, the UK’s leading garden retailer. We reviewed, in depth, the scientific evidence about how UK gardens support wild plant and animal species. We also examined  how and why nature is good for people’s mental and physical health and wellbeing, and the role that gardens could play in these critical nature-human links. Beautifully illustrated and packed with facts and figures (UK gardens cover an area about the size of Norfolk), The Nature of Gardens includes ten top tips aimed at helping everyone to support wildlife next to their homes – even if they don’t have a garden at all.
