In 2018, we set a vision for working towards zero accidents involving small animals and our products. One of our actions is hedgehog safety-tests for Automower®, and we’re constantly developing new ways of reaching our vision.
For the love of our planet. For the love of nature.
Your garden wouldn’t be the same without them. Meet some of your garden’s most valuable players.
The hedgehog is one of the most popular animals in our close environment. In addition to being super cute, the hedgehog preys on many common garden pests like snails and snakes.For unknown reasons, the hedgehog population has decreased rapidly in the past five years. Help them avoid traffic by building holes and paths for easy passage through your garden.
Ladybirds are hungry, hungry bugs. In fact, they can eat up to 5000 aphids over a lifetime. So, if you want to keep your garden free of pests such as mealybugs, mites and scale you should stay on the ladybug’s good side by putting out tiny bowls of water once in a while.
Another MVP you want to see in your garden is the butterfly – a highly positive indicator of garden health. Along with bees, these flittering insects are important pollinators. Around a third of all plants need pollination to set fruit, and pollination occurs naturally when butterflies hop between flowers sipping nectar. Sadly, butterfly populations are increasingly compromised by habitat loss due to climate change, deforestation, and pesticide use. So by making your garden butterfly friendly, you can do something at home to contribute towards their wellbeing while helping flora in your area flourish. Consider planting nectar-rich species like Buddleia, Butterfly Weed (Asclepia), Verbena, Joe-Pye Weed, Daisies, or perennial Snapdragons.
