The Wildlife Pond Handbook Summary

The Wildlife Pond Handbook: A Practical Guide to Creating and Maintaining Your Own Wetland for Wildlife by Louise Bardsley

With around 200,000 garden ponds in the Greater London area alone, ponds are one of the most appealing and vibrant small-scale wildlife habitats. Almost one in ten British gardens actually have a pond and it is seen as a growth area both by garden centres and conservation organizations alike. With this book wildlife and garden enthusiasts can discover and explore the world of ponds: from bugs, beetles and dragonflies, to frogs, newts, birds and bats. It offers clear step-by-step instructions on how to plan, design, site and build small and large ponds for wildlife and is full of suggestions on how to encourage different plants and animals. Also included are details on a wide variety of plants, tips on how to maintain your pond through the seasons and clear, annotated diagrams on its construction.
