Plant More Trees
Is your garden lacking trees? You may have beautiful plants, shrubs, and flowers all around, but not many trees. However, trees often attract wildlife.

It’s not too difficult to attract wildlife to a garden. The best ways to do so would be to feed the birds with assorted bird feeders and plant more trees where these animals can find shelter. In addition to these options, you may want to plant the different types of flowers, fruits, and vegetables that wildlife animals like to eat.
