Including a pond in your garden is a good way to support local wildlife. Learn how to create a simple and beautiful wildlife pond that also provides an essential habitat for frogs, toads, dragonflies, birds, butterflies and other water dependent creatures, adding color and activity to your landscape year-round. Unlike traditional ponds, wildlife ponds do not require filters, pumps or chemicals making them an easy addition to any space. Discuss the materials you’ll need, optimal locations, native plants best suited for in-pond life as well as the plants that will also thrive in moist areas elsewhere in your yard.
