Every acre is a home for wildlife
Your garden is really important!
Large or small, ledge or yard, your garden could be part of a wider network of natural havens linking urban green spaces with nature reserves and Derbyshire's countryside.
Together, our gardens are a vast living landscape. With an estimated 16 million gardens in the UK, the way they are cared for can make a big difference to the natural world.
