Leaving a log pile in a quiet area of your garden, will create a habitat for many invertebrates, insects, frogs, toads, hedgehogs and other creatures. Many of us have small areas to garden in, but it's easy to create a woodpile in a quiet corner and leave a pile of autumn leaves for hedgehogs to safely nest in.
Leaving an area of fallen autumn leaves in a quiet, undisturbed area of the garden for hedgehogs will provide a perfect place for hedgehogs to nest, hibernate and sleep safely. Hedgehogs are able to use their spines to collect leaves as they can roll over and cover themselves in leaves.
