We are now on the verge of a big change in our garden landscape.
The world has moved on from the traditional wooden enclosure.
But as our gardens evolve, we are also learning to make use of new technologies to create beautiful, wildlife-friendly spaces for our animals.
In our garden, we’ve already got new methods to capture and hold the animals in place, but what about the rest of the landscape?
In the past, the traditional tree-top enclosure, with its large metal cage, had to be dismantled before it could be used.
Now, with the use of a range of technology, we can take it apart and use it for the rest the landscape.
Insects like to climb trees and other plants to lay their eggs, and these eggs will hatch in just minutes.
With the use the same technology that is used to capture reptiles, we have an ideal place to incubate them and grow them for a few months.
The problem with traditional tree cages, and the way we usually put them together, is that they have to be carefully maintained.
This makes them difficult to transport, and they also require lots of maintenance, which can be expensive.
To combat this, we’re going to use a new type of enclosure, made from an old tree that we’ve used for many years.
The new enclosure works by creating a large hollow cavity within the tree.
As the tree grows, this cavity expands and contracts, making it more and more stable.
It’s the same principle that the tree cage uses to create the space it needs to trap and store eggs and young.
With the help of a laser, we’ll be able to take the tree down and then we’ll place it in the enclosure.
As it grows, it’ll contract and collapse, forming a hollow cavity to trap the eggs and small reptiles in.
To make sure the eggs are kept in the cage, we will use a specially formulated insecticide.
This can be applied directly to the tree, or it can be sprayed into the tree with a specially designed sprayer.
The key to the enclosure is that it can withstand the pressures and temperatures that our reptile gardens will see.
In fact, we don’t need to worry about the trees being toppled and falling over; we can easily place the enclosure where the animals can lay their nests in a safe and stable environment.
