Almost one in ten British gardens have a pond and it is seen as a growth area both by garden centres and conservation organizations alike. With The Wildlife Pond Handbook wildlife and garden enthusiasts can discover and explore the world of ponds: from bugs, beetles and dragonflies, to frogs, newts, birds and bats.
With a foreword written by popular television presenter and gardener Charlie Dimmock, The Wildlife Pond Handbook offers clear step-by-step instructions on how to plan, design, site and build small and large ponds for wildlife.
Illustrated with stunning full-colour photographs and artwork throughout, it is full of advice on how to encourage different varieties of pond plants and animals. Also included are details on a wide variety of plants, tips on how to maintain your pond through the seasons, clear annotated diagrams on its construction and much more.
