Reptiles can be found in many gardens, even in quite urban settings. You are most likely to have common lizards, slow worms or grass snakes, depending on local conditions. In this blog, we will talk about their different requirements and how your garden can be a home fit for these mini-dragons.
In our last garden, in a housing estate in a large town, we often saw lizards as we approached the front door. It was a dry spot, with plenty of hiding places, and a real sun trap. Lizards also frequent our allotment where there are warm spots and cover. If you have lizards, you can provide good habitat with sunny rockeries and log piles. Lizards eat insects and spiders so there also needs to be good habitat for their prey.
