There are so many reasons to make a pond. Aesthetically, ponds are beautiful, tranquil with so many lovely plants and grasses.
I can write about the advantages of having a pond, but the images alone showcase what ponds are really about.
Wildlife is attracted to a pond both as a source of drinking water, but also as a habitat. Many insects and creates live in the fringes of a pond. The images above show frogs; it is hard to image just how many frogs arrive at the pond to spawn and then disperse for another year. Many of the frogs which spawn in the pond live the rest of the year in the garden. This short video shows how the pond becomes frog full in March.
Ponds and wildlife go together. Installing a pond in your garden is one of the main things you can do to bring in wildlife. A pond will attract frogs, ducks (welcome or not) many birds some to bath and splash about others to fish such as Herons and even kingfishers. Insects such as pond skaters are in abundance as are dragonflies, damselflies and hawkers its a long list. All you need to bring in wildlife, is a pond.
