About this book

Create an aquatic habitat in your garden – home to stunning, brightly coloured damsel- and dragonflies with iridescent eyes, amphibians which choose to breed, and birds and mammals of many kinds that come to drink at such placid waters, including hedgehogs. Water plants, like Yellow Iris, lilies and sedges in and next to your pond will bring new colours and shapes to your garden. Besides the aesthetic properties and value of garden ponds, their conservation importance has never been greater and indeed ponds are now refuges for some of our most endangered aquatic animals, such as newts and toads.

A completed pond will surely provide years of pleasure. However, before creating a pond, its location and right time of construction, as well as its size and shape, have to be carefully considered. Further chapters in this new guide explain step by step how to go about digging, lining, filling and planting a pond, with additional advice on its maintenance.
