Did you know that the average hedgehog roams around 2km a night? Building a hedgehog hall in your garden wall or fence allows hedgehogs to safely roam gardens in search of food, mates and places to nest.
These only have to be 13cm X 13cm (the size of a CD) and are just big enough for hedgehogs, but small enough to keep most pets out. In turn, hedgehogs contribute to a thriving ecosystem and rid your garden of pests, such as slugs, caterpillars and beetles.
It is estimated that there are fewer than one million hedgehogs left in Britain, so building a hedgehog hole to allow safe passage from garden to garden goes a long way. It will also give you a chance to develop your relationship with your neighbours and local community!
