Did you know the humble hedgehog is now officially classified as vulnerable to extinction in the UK? Sad, right? But before you reach for the Kleenex, let’s talk solutions. Let’s talk about how you can transform your garden into a hedgehog haven with just a few tweaks and a little help from our friends at OneFold.
Is Your Garden a Hedgehog Hotel or a Desert?
Ever looked at your garden and thought, ‘Doesn’t look like a hedgehog would feel at home here?’ You wouldn’t be the first. For hedgehogs, urban gardens can feel like a desert – bare, hostile, and not in the least bit appetising.
But with a few smart moves and a touch of creativity, you can turn your patch of earth into the Ritz for these spiky critters. It’s about creating spaces for them to roam, shelter, and feast on delicious bugs.
OneFold: Your Ally in this Prickly Mission
We at OneFold have been in the garden ornament and statue game for over a decade. We’re like the Sherlocks of garden décor. We’ve spent years working closely with suppliers to ensure high quality, weather and frost-proof garden ornaments. In fact, they’re just the kind of thing you need to make your garden irresistible to hedgehogs.
But how, you might ask, does a garden gnome or a stone bird bath help in this quest? Great question, my discerning reader. The answer lies in our approach to garden landscaping.
Use OneFold Ornaments to Create Hedgehog Highways
Imagine trying to navigate a city with no roads. Sounds like a nightmare, doesn’t it? Well, that’s what a garden with high fences and no hedgehog access is like for our spiky friends.
Our range of ornaments, when smartly placed, can aid in creating hedgehog highways, gaps and corridors between gardens, allowing them to roam freely. It’s a bit like designing your own Hedgehog Autobahn, only with less speeding and more relaxed ambling.
Provide Shelter with OneFold’s Statues
Hedgehogs are pretty low maintenance, but they need some basic things: shelter, food, water, and mates. That’s where OneFold’s statues come in.
Our statues and ornaments, especially ones with hollow bases, can double as perfect hedgehog homes. They’re safe, they’re sturdy, and – let’s not beat around the bush here – they’re damn stylish.
Feeding Stations or Water Points? Why Not Both!
OneFold’s range also includes birdbaths, which can double up as a water point for hedgehogs. Just make sure to add some stones for easy access and exit. As for food, a protected spot near a wall or an ornament where you can leave out some hedgehog-friendly grub would work a treat.
Hint: They love cat food, and who can blame them? Just avoid anything fish-based. Hedgehogs are strictly terrestrial foodies.
And the Punch Line? You’ll Help Save a Species!
You’ve made it this far, so I know you’re not the type to sit back and let a species go extinct on your watch. So, here’s the punchline: By transforming your garden into a hedgehog haven, you’re contributing to the survival of a species.
Plus, let’s be honest, there’s something undeniably cool about sipping your morning coffee, looking out onto your hedgehog-friendly garden, and spotting a spiky creature ambling about, right?
The Challenge is Yours, Fellow Gardeners!
So, how about it? Ready to make your garden a hedgehog haven? With OneFold’s range of ornaments and statues, you can create a space that’s as much a feast for the eyes as it is a lifeline for our prickly pals.
And remember, every hedgehog-friendly garden is another step towards pulling this delightful creature back from the brink. So go on, channel your inner David Attenborough and let’s give these hedgehogs a home!
