I've just switched over to watch "The British Garden: Life and Death on your Lawn" on BBC Four.
Chris Packham and a group of experts from London's Natural History Museum scrutinise the wildlife in gardens on a surburban street in Welwyn Garden City. They do this for one year.
Switch on to BBC Four to watch this 90 minute special. It shows a world full of wildlife with snails, worms, foxes, woodlice and frogs. It asks questions such as "are lawns any good for wildlife?" (The wild garden lawn has 3 times as much insects - even letting our lawns grow a few inches helps.)
So to help wildlife, stop mowing all your grass and let some grow long.
