'Bald patches in beds and lawns are good for garden wildlife,' says the UK's RHS
from House Beautiful
In a new study, researchers from RHS Garden Wisely analyzed various types of ground-dwelling invertebrates in the garden, and found that the denser the vegetation, the greater number of insects there were. While the garden remains a pride of joy for many with an abundance of annuals and perennials and well-maintained lawns, it turns out having occasional bald patches of earth is not only economical but provides a habitat different to that provided by full, mature borders.
