One of the 4 key components of a Backyard Wildlife Habitat is water with the other 3 being food, cover and places to raise young. Providing water can be as simple as placing a bird bath in the garden or as complicated as installing a pond.
I have provided a bird bath, installed a small, molded pond as well as creating downspout watering holes.
At every water source animals who share this space come to drink, sun themselves and play.
To help the smallest creatures who frequent the ponds, I’ve provided a way to enter and exit the water. Even amphibians and insects could drown without an exit strategy.
Providing water not only helps those who share this space called a garden, it also provides a place of harmony,
