Dry stone walls are a haven for wildlife and form a network of nature reserves across the landscape.

 

They support a great range of animals from mammals to spiders.

Naturally occurring gaps provide protection from predators and shelter from extreme weather.

Hibernating toads, slow worms and newts all favour conditions the walls provide. While snails and woodlice favour the foot of the wall creating a well balanced ecosystem.

Across the countryside these provide corridors allowing wildlife to travel and spread. 

Also home to flora such as Lichen, Moss and Liverwort and self seeding plants. Should you choose to add flora to your walls you should avoid plants with extreme root runs as these will damage the walls. New walls can be bridged over established tree roots to allow them to live in harmony.
