Water is important for every single animal in the world, by putting in a pond or a waterfall you will be welcoming various different animals and insects into your life. Be sure to avoid stagnant water, and look into natural maintenance techniques to avoid unneeded chemicals. If you choose to get a pond, frogs keep harmful bugs out of your garden and eat mosquitos as well.

Look into creating shaded areas with your plants and decorations. Most animals or insects need to get cool and will appreciate if you do this. You can even make these shaded areas into little natural nooks for yourself. Remember, you can make your garden better for animals and enjoy it yourself as well.

Bees and other insects love certain flowers, going out of their way to choose them above all else.

Lizards help eat insects and are really cute as well. If you want to keep them a round, a couple of sunny rocks is a great place to start. You can keep snakes away by making sure that there aren’t any tall plants surrounding these rocks. Put them close to trees if you have mulch dwelling lizards in your area.

3. Keep Noise And Vibrations To A Minimum

Most creatures and insects are made uncomfortable by loud sounds and vibrations. Try to avoid putting stereo equipment outside. Instead, aim for a quiet and tranquil space. A fence may actually keep sounds isolated and encourage animals to come into your yard.

2. Provide Small Hiding Places

The kind of animals you want in your yard are very small and are usually rather scared of humans. If you want them to stick around, you should provide places for them to hide, make nests, and live their lives. This can be as simple as leaving space when you pot plants. You can also go out of your way to create charming little hide-a ways, the animals will really appreciate the extra effort if you do.

Animals like to live in a place where they feel comfortable, and for most animals, this means living in a place where the vegetation and surrounding area seems alive. Take care to water your plants and ensure that you remove dead plant matter from your yard. This not only welcome in good creatures, but keeps some of the less appealing ones out of your yard as well.
