Tips for Wildlife & Gardening

Printer-friendly version

A Dublin City Garden Biodiversity Study was conducted in 2007.  The results showed that most respondents had little or no space for gardening or for interaction with wildlife.  However, it is possible to create mini-wildlife gardens, even on a window sill.  These can attract a wealth of wildlife to an urban area including many butterflies and moths, ladybirds, bees, birds and bats.  DCC has created a number of short guides to outline the simple steps needed to create a mini-wildlife garden.
