We want everyone to make space for wildlife whether you live in a country cottage or a town terrace!

We understand that every garden is different so you don't need to have everything (though we're not stopping you)! We ask you have at least five different features listed here to show you are encouraging wildlife in your garden.

And why stop at five...?
