With a very wet year, both ahead and behind us, it is making your garden trees and hedges grow very fast. You and your neighbour have cut down trees and removed habitat for possums over the years. You are looking after your garden but the possums are making a mess of it. They have killed plants you love and made a mess all over your deck.
If you provide habitat specifically with possums in mind, you may experience a reduction in these activities. Possums are very territorial animals and simply shooing them away will not stop them from traversing their local possum highway. How does adding habitat to your yard help keep possums away?
Well, it doesn’t, rather it gives them a different highway to use. By adding possum boxes you can stop them from nesting under lose roofing tiles. By adding a hedge you increase the volume of food to eat so they are wrecking your love plants. Possums love certain plants more than others, and they are very determined to eat that sweet treat. You can add either artificial or organic highways to keep them away from your corrugated roof. You wont be woken by them banging all along your roof. In these new ecosystems, a lot of focus is put on creating green corridors and landscapes. Not just inhabitable by animals and are eco-friendly, but also visually pleasing.
Any type of property is suitable for habitat creation services. It usually all depends on the type of creatures you may want to assist or harbour. Habitat creation is perfectly suitable for large landscapes like parks or reservations but it can also be implemented in the tiniest garden right in the middle of the city.
Habitat creation services offer lots of benefits and not just to the environment or animal species in your region. Here is a quick look at the top reasons to get this type of service for your garden instead of your traditional garden landscaping service.
By implementing a list of trees that are desirable to eat, we can increase the vertical feel in your garden, as well increasing the supply of food that keeps possums running backwards and forwards through different territories. Though your fences are strong borderlines for you, animals see them only as highways. Trying to stop animals using these highways without an alternative route will only cause them to spend more time eating the plants that you love. They will start to become trapped and will move closer and closer to your home.
The main goal of habitat creation is to create more habitat for natural animal life. Humans have taken up a lot of the habitat in the natural world. This has resulted in numerous endangered or even extinct animal species. There is no real reason we can’t share our world with animals. Habitat creation in your own backyard is a good start. Your backyard can be a perfect habitat for many animal species like tortoises, birds, lizards, possums, and marsupial species if you just incorporate the right features, plants, and sheltering.
The gardens created by habitat creation services are always eco-friendly and animal-safe. With this type of garden, your carbon footprint and water waste are greatly reduced and your garden becomes a more environmentally safe area.
Support natural vegetation
Regional plants can be just as beautiful as the invasive plant species that is so common in gardens. Supporting natural vegetation in your own garden won’t reduce the aesthetic appeal of your garden spaces and will help the overall ecosystem a great deal since these plants are better suited for your environment.
It is a lot of fun to explore a garden that is filled with plenty of natural plants, hedges, flowers, butterflies, and small animals. Your garden will become a lot more interesting and, despite the more natural vibe, it will still have plenty of attractive features. Habitat creation services certainly are the right step to take in 2022. Contact Michael at MD Tee Work and find out how these specialists can help you establish and build a strong ecosystem
