Birds and insects are attracted to flowers because they produce nectar and pollen, which is the basis of their diet. If you can create a garden with flowers blooming throughout the year, you can encourage wildlife and birds to set up a home in your garden permanently. Native flowers are a great way to attract native wildlife.

A layer of mulch around your plants can attract loads of insects to your garden, as well as improve your soil quality. Mulch provides a moist habitat that insects and worms love. The best mulch to use in your backyard would include native leaf litter, which comes from pruning and mulching the branches from your own native trees.
