Leading housebuilder Barratt Homes has been rewarded for its efforts in designing the show home garden at Wigston Meadows with local wildlife in mind.
An RSPB wildlife friendly garden at a Barratt Homes development
Barratt Homes has been awarded five stars from the Home Builder Federation (HBF) for the tenth year in a row and is continuing its success by being awarded a bronze certificate by the RSPB for making its show home gardens across its developments wildlife friendly.
Features of the gardens include a bird box, bee box (or bug hotel), hedgehog highway, scented garden, native hedgerow and a dead wood feature.
Barratt Homes has been partnered with the RSPB since 2014. The agreement is the first of its kind in the UK and aims to boost natural habitats at Barratt Homes’ developments across the country.
Jan Ruston, Sales Director at Barratt Homes North Midlands, said, “We have been working with the RSPB for over six years now and the wildlife-friendly show home garden initiative is one way the partnership is working to improve our approach to the natural world around our developments.
“We’re really excited to have been awarded the certificate and for our customers to see the new wildlife friendly show home gardens to display the potential we have as home owners to do our bit for the environment.
“Hopefully the new gardens will be teeming with life this summer and anyone that comes to see them will be able to pick up some great tips for their new home.”
There are currently a range of four bedroom homes for sale at Wigston Meadows, ranging in price from £306,995 to £381,995.
