is quite possible for the urban environment to be home to a wide
range of native animals. You can encourage this by providing suitable
food, shelter and breeding sites.
exotic trees and shrubs can provide this habitat, local natives are
particularly useful. Not only are they suited to the local climate
and conditions, and so require less fertilising and watering, but
also the local wildlife is adapted to live with them. As Canberra
enjoys a magnificent system of bushland reserves birds and other
native creatures will be readily attracted to your garden if you do
provide suitable plants. A well established garden with bird
attracting trees and shrubs will add value to your home.
