Hi Kerry

Really pleased to hear you and your neighbours are chasing your developer re. hog holes. Hopefully you will be successful, but if not you may have to make some yourselves. There is some information here:

It can be quite fun having a ‘blank canvas’, but also a bit daunting. I would be inclined to put some shrubs in (assuming size allows), maybe in a sort of hedge like effect, which might provide some natural nest sites once grown a bit, as well as providing leaves for nest building.

I have a few links re. gardening, which might be interesting. I’ll put them each in a separate post, as the forum doesn’t always like too many links in one post.

Good luck. I hope you manage to attract some hedgehogs.
