Mini pond David Hur­rion cre­ates a pond haven that will en­tice plenty of wildlife vis­i­tors into the gar­den

Gardeners' World - - Every Space Counts -

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.
