Mini pond David Hurrion creates a pond haven that will entice plenty of wildlife visitors into the garden
Even a small garden will benefit from a mini pond to attract aquatic life as well as provide a place for birds, insects and mammals to drink. We used a black crate that will blend in well with the surrounding areas, once filled with water. The edges can also be disguised with marginal plants in the pond and small border plants at the pond edge. You can also edge it with flat rockery stones to provide a place for insects to bask in the sun. Keep it topped up regularly in summer and you’ll be doing your bit for wildlife.
