Attracting wildlife to your garden is something that you can do to help support the planet. Helping the environment by making our gardens more environmentally friendly places is something that we can all do. From bird tables to hedgehog houses there are lots of ways to provide for the local wildlife.
Something that can be great for a wildlife friendly garden is a pond. When it comes to attracting wildlife to the garden, a pond can be a real haven for creatures such as frogs and toads, newts, dragonflies and birds like herons. Building a pond of your own is not too difficult – there are lots of video guides online that you could watch to see how it is done.
Something that you will also need to research beforehand is the types of plants that you want to add to your pond. There are some plants that thrive in the water, and there are many that also provide food as well as a habitat to the creatures that live in the pond. Ponds that have a variety of plants can provide a healthy and happy eco system in the pond.
As well as being a great place for the wildlife, a pond is also a relaxing feature of your own garden. They are a pleasure to watch and being by water is known to be soothing. Adding features such as fountains is easy – use materials such as copper pipe like this watkinspowis.co.uk/products/copper-pipe-fittings-and-press-systems/ that will not cause problems for the pond.
