Build Your Own Wildlife Pond To Attract Insects

Wildlife ponds have become more popular as we become environmentally aware and want to encourage wildlife in the garden.

These natural ponds are not only truly beautiful and educational for children, but you will also be helping the ecosystem of your whole garden. Did you know having a wildlife pond encourages frogs and toads, which eat slugs? More birds and wildlife will also visit you, some you may not have seen before.

Shallow ponds are great for wildlife – Unless you are keeping fish, the deepest areas need to be no more than 25-30 cm (1 foot) deep. This keeps all of the pond well oxygenated and well lit. It also means you can see to the bottom, helping you to enjoy your pond more.

Step 1 - Select your PVC liner and underlay

You will receive a top quality 0.5mm PVC Oase Alfafol liner with a 15 year warranty plus a 200 gsm underlay to suit.

Generally, it’s a good idea to add some shape to your pond edges - don’t go for straight sides, instead, add some curves. This will help add to the number of microhabitats found in your pond and makes it more attractive to wildlife. Many people go for the kidney-shaped pond style. Use a rope or hose to mark the pond edges before you start digging. Don’t forget to add a sloping aspect to at least one end of the pond - this will ensure wildlife can get in and out.

Step 2 - Select your plants

Plants are very important for a wildlife pond. As well as making your pond look beautiful, they also provide homes for your aquatic creatures. 

Step 3 - Select any additional extra's 

Our accessory set includes: water conditioner, blanketweed treatment, plant food, pond net with ridged handle, and a guide to pond wildlife book

The optional solar air pump helps beneficial bacteria function more efficiently, and also attracts wildlife to the water
