Following a partnership agreement, it has worked with the RSPB, to create nature friendly gardens at the development on Blandford Way.

Features of the gardens include hedgehog houses, bird and bat boxes and many plants and landscaping features designed specifically to attract insects such as bees and butterflies.

David Wilson 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 David Wilson Homes’ developments across the country.

Steve Barton, senior sales manager at David Wilson Homes Mercia, said: “We have been working with the RSPB for over six years now and want to ensure that we’re doing as much as we can to retain and build upon the natural habitat around our developments.”

“We’re really excited to see the new wildlife friendly show home gardens and to show the potential we have as home owners to do our bit for the environment.

“Hopefully the new gardens will be teeming with life throughout the seasons and anyone that comes to see them will be able to pick up some great tips for their new home.”
