SOUTHPORT, England, February 20, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

The unpredictable and unsettled weather in the UK throughout 2012 has reportedly had all sorts of repercussions for the wildlife native to the British Isles. The experts at MeadowMat are keen to see more people adopt a wildlife-friendly attitude to gardening and grounds keeping in a bid to help face the challenges set by the changing climate.

2012 saw unseasonable dry spells and record wet spells, both of which caused problems for flora and fauna of different varieties. While it's true that some forms of wildlife thrived in the extremes, others suffered severely, with many types of plant life unable to adjust to the conditions and sustain the animal life that depends on them.

Wildlife in the UK needs all the support possible in order to thrive, especially when the climate proves unpredictable and is given to extremes. This is why the team at MeadowMat are encouraging homeowners and grounds keepers to be as proactive as possible in maintaining green spaces on their premises and creating the type of environment where wildlife can flourish.

Wildlife contributes greatly to people's enjoyment of green spaces and flora and fauna co-operate to produce healthier and more attractive grounds. However, when soil quality is poor it is difficult for wildlife to properly incorporate itself into a given area, which is why wildflower mats are an important development when it comes to horticulture and biodiversity.

Wildflower mattering can be used to introduce wildflowers to spaces that are not naturally endowed with the resources to support a flourishing ecosystem.

Those who are interested in learning more about wildflower matting and methods for encouraging wildlife in domestic, commercial, public and conservation areas are advised to speak to an expert.
