Hedgehog Highways

If there is a way in and out for hedgehogs in your garden, you will most likely be rewarded by hedgehogs visiting or even living in your garden.


If your garden offers no access for hedgehogs, you will not get hedgehog visitors unless you take the following steps:

  • Allow some ways in and out of your garden for them.

  • Make a few small holes, 4 or 5 inches square at the bottom of the wall or fence, at least one hole on each side. This creates a habitat corridor (free access) between the gardens

  • Cut a small hole under the side or back gate

  • Make sure your neighbours do the same. If a shared boundary fence, sign a boundary wall agreement

  • When building new fences or walls, think of the hedgehogs and leave small gaps underneath or at each end.
