Over the past years one theme has come under focus among some of the garden owners that hardly played a role in this form previously: Insects. In the past, measures were taken more to get rid of the insects and one was pleased when there weren’t too many insects creeping and flattering around one’s own garden. Today, a nature-oriented garden is not only designed to please the owner, the beetles, butterflies and co. are also supposed to feel at home there.
