Wrendale Designs Gardening CollectionIf you're gardening in spring, there are a few things you can do to look out for wildlife while you're working:

  1. Check for nests: Before you start digging or pruning, check for nests in your yard. Many birds, such as robins build nests in trees or shrubs. Be sure to avoid disturbing any nests you find.

  2. Be mindful of insects: Spring is a time when many insects become more active. Be aware of bees, wasps, and other stinging insects while you're working in the garden. Try to avoid disturbing their nests or hives.

  3. Provide habitat: You can also help wildlife in your garden by providing habitat. Plant flowers and shrubs that provide food and shelter for birds and other animals. Consider installing a birdhouse or a small pond to attract wildlife.
