Create a small ecosystem
in your garden or park by piling up some logs in a secluded corner. These will provide shelter for hedgehogs, frogs and toads. If you half-bury the bottom logs in the soil, you will also encourage stag beetles as they are fond of rotten wood. A pile of stones will also provide shelter to a range of insects and spiders.
