My Council House Nature Reserve - Command Centre

Trevor Hubble


Sign on door says MEN & SPIDERS ONLY. Think I need some more Spiders ! to help keep out the girls !. Built this after installing a fibre glass pond taken from a clearance job in to my garden. There were 10 pregnant Newts in it. I have 100s now. The building constructed 3x2 treated stud walls-6x2 treated joists and Double glazed. Totally insulated-roof over boarded with WBP Ply then felt and makes a great Bird table. Water run off collected and feeds the plants. There was only grass and a washing line here. Below the Command Centre is a haven for the small stuff. Various joined up areas with soil and nesting material. The Newts, Mice and slow worms love it. Inside im happy with a heated room, music, a Brandy and the odd Spider. YOU CAN PUT THE WORLD TO RIGHTS IN HERE and really can be any where with a bit more planting. You don't need a lot of room to make a difference
