Garden for life

Gardens, as well as places for people to enjoy, provide valuable havens for wildlife. Everyone with a garden, or even a window box, can do their bit to conserve wildlife and the wider environment.

The NTS is conscious of the need to work with countryside and nature conservation specialists to help develop and maintain wildlife habitats in and amongst our garden properties. Sometimes these local reserves are recognized as being of exceptional natural value and are home to a wide variety of animals, invertebrates and plant species.
