With the enormous consumption of landscape by our civilisation, not only conservation areas, but also our gardens and open spaces have become the final refuges and safe havens for the endangered animal and plant world.
With a natural stone wall a wonderful habitat can be created in the garden for different animal and plant species.

By combining the wall with SCHWEGLER products and suitable planting, an attractive and living refuges is created, e.g. for Insects, Small Mammals, Birds, and Lizards. A south-east orientation with free sunlight incidence is idea, although other positions also function at all times in order for an individual animal and plant world to settle. Suitable natural stones or concrete blocks can be found, for example, in building trade outlets, gardening and landscaping suppliers, etc.

SCHWEGLER built-in elements can be easily integrated in structures, regardless of whether a wall, herb spiral or stone wall. Diverse installation ideas can be realised. How about a living garage wall, wall sections as a garden element, retaining wall, herb spiral, raised bed wall, and, and, and …? Other products can also be installed in the wall area and can be integrated in the planting. For a living oasis on your property.

Niche Nesting Box

Built-in module for rock shelter and niche breeders. Due to the design of this box with double entry, the small predator protection integrated in the inside of the brood chamber is very effective. This type of box is safe against Magpies, Cats, Martens and Jays because, due to the penetrating brightness, the birds always build their nest in the rear area of the brood chamber insert. Another advantage of the brood chamber insert is that the parent birds can provide for their young from the antechamber. With Brood Chamber Insert and Reeds for side padding in the masonry wall.
