Gardening to help the environment
- Do not use chemicals unnecessarily. The process of making chemicals is damaging. When you use chemicals, they can get washed into watercourses. Throwing the packaging away puts chemicals into landfill sites, which may also be illegal. So think about whether you really need to use fertilisers or pesticides.
- Compost all your garden and kitchen vegetable waste. This not only provides a natural fertiliser and soil conditioner but also reduces the amount of waste produced. Remember to dispose of garden waste in your green bin. Find out more about home composting.
- Fit a water butt to the down pipe on your house to collect rainwater. Use this water for watering the garden. It is better for your plants and better for the environment.
- Make space for wildlife. Grow flowers obtained from reputable garden centres. Leave areas to grow a little wild at the back of your garden. Fit bird and bat boxes and even bee shelters. See the leaflets below.
- Harness the power of the sun by using solar power. Use solar powered pumps for water features and solar powered lights to improve ambience.
- Do not use peat. Peat comes from fragile wild habitats. Instead of using peat, use compost or other soil conditioners.
- Look for the FSC logo when buying timber products. Ensure your garden furniture is not made using tropical hardwoods.
For a local project, developing a wildlife garden please see the Wildlife Garden project website.
You can score the value of your garden and find ideas to make it even better for wildlife on the Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust put your garden to the test webpage
