How to attract bees and butterflies
Draw a rough plan of the area of the garden you want to redesign. Include where your home is, any walls and sheds or existing structures and where there is paving. This'll allow you to work around these existing features. Also mark on the plan the aspect of the sun, where it sets, where it rises and which parts of the garden get the most sun.
If you're not sure what to plant in your garden, a good tip is to take a walk around your local neighbourhood. This'll show you what grows well in your local soil and weather conditions.
You also need to consider what type of garden you want. If you have kids or pets, this may affect your choice. Different garden types include a native garden, cottage garden, tropical or even vertical gardens. Whatever style you choose, it's a good idea to keep it looking simple and stick to the same style throughout your garden.
