If you have hedges around your greenspace, you’re onto a winner. They will have all the gaps that wildlife needs as well as being an amazing habitat in their own right.
However, if you have a fence, consider cutting a hedgehog highway – or several! – at ground level. Check with your neighbour first, of course, but then create a series of holes about 13cm wide and high. These gaps can be squares or a circles or arch-shapes, it doesn’t matter.
Ideally, choose locations tucked behind bushes or long grass, as wildlife will prefer if they can slip from garden to garden unseen.
If you have a wall, it can be much more difficult to knock a hole through. Instead, think about growing climbing plants up the wall, which can provide a climbing route for wildlife. It’s not ideal, but it at least offers them a better chance of making it to the other side.
