Water is probably one of the single most important additions to a wildlife garden as it will attract a huge variety of insects, mammals and birds as well as the usual amphibians and even Grass Snakes in the right situation.
Ponds also have a great ability to bring both children and adults close to nature and are extremely educational. Care should always be taken when children have access to a pond and young children should always be accompanied by an adult and supervised at all times when around water. At the same time a garden pond can teach children to understand the issue of safety around water bodies and will equip them with this knowledge when they visit other gardens or areas where supervision may be more 'relaxed'.
At Somerset Wildlife Products we can create a bespoke pond to suit your situation and size of garden and to maximise the benefit to wildlife and your whole families enjoyment and education..
