Basingstoke and Deane Borough Council carrying out free garden surveys for residents





Basingstoke and Deane residents can now book a free plant and wildlife garden survey to find out how they can nurture wildlife and cut carbon emissions.

The survey would be carried out by Basingstoke and Deane Borough Council’s green team which launched last summer to help people adopt more sustainable lifestyles.

Undertaken by its sustainability specialists, the team’s surveys involve looking at the number, type and variety of plants present, for easy sources of food and water for insects and animals and if there are safe places for wildlife to live and hibernate.

Once the hour-long survey is complete, the findings are then used to help create a guide with actions and ideas for how people can support and enhance nature by encouraging native plants and wildlife in their gardens.

This could include providing seeds and water for birds, letting areas bloom with bee-friendly flowers, planting shrubs and putting hedgehog highways in fences so wildlife can move freely between neighbours’ gardens, then into local parks and beyond.
