It's important to do as much planning on paper as possible. This is particularly true if you
plan to plant trees or implement a water feature. Once these elements are in the ground it can be time-consuming and costly to make changes. The more you can plan on paper, the more likely you will avoid problems when implementing your final design. Regardless of the type of wildlife you wish to attract, it's important to keep in mind that they all have the same basic needs: food, water, shelter and space. Food: Just like humans, wildlife requires food in order to survive.
