Caravan Holiday Home Gardening and Helping Local Wildlife
1st July 2016
As Summer approaches and the weather starts to improve, many of you will be starting to plant out your holiday home gardens for the year ahead. Having a pleasant outdoor space to relax, unwind and enjoy the parks enviable location, is all part of the experience of owning a static caravan at our award-winning carvan park.
When you begin to spruce up your caravan garden, please give a thought to the wildlife that lives at our Lancashire Holiday Park! Many plants can give your caravan and garden plenty of colour and look attractive, whilst having great benefits to bird and insect populations through pollen and seeds.
Helping local wildlife at Moss Wood
At Moss Wood Caravan Park we do everything we can to protect the natural surroundings and have started a number of initiatives, which enable various species to thrive. Our commitment to sustainability and the environment has been recognised within the tourism industry, and we’re delighted to have received a number of awards including the Gold David Bellamy Conservation Award.
Across our site you will find a number of landscaped areas with a variety of beautiful flowers. We’ve also left some areas of grass a little longer – this encourages wild flowers to flourish. Let’s not forget our private fishing lake, home to a number of fish and insects and our dedicated nature trail, which takes touring guests and holiday home owners along our woodland walk, where you may be lucky enough to spot an elusive red squirrel!
Here are a few ideas of the different types of plants you can include which are great for helping local wildlife.
