Creating a small wildlife pond in your landscape pond is an easy way to add some natural beauty and give your fish a place to hide. Wildlife ponds can be created in a variety of sizes, shapes and depths. They are the perfect addition to any yard, park or community recreation area. There are many ways that landscaping ponds can be used to enhance your landscaping. Smaller ponds are a wonderful option for landscape ponds and can be easily created in your own back yard.
Creating a small wildlife pond in your garden provides a very relaxing and rewarding hobby for the whole family. A small water feature or pond works well on the same concept as a bird garden. The only difference between the two is the lack of any bird life in the garden. The concept is similar to a bird garden in that there are plants that attract specific species of birds. Most garden plants and flowers are not beneficial to birds. By planting certain plants that attract specific species of birds you can greatly improve your landscape and give some nice sight seeing opportunities for all ages.
A beautiful addition to any backyard is a bird-friendly garden. Native plants are very effective in attracting specific types of birds. When creating a small wildlife pond or bird garden, it is best to only plant native plants that are good attractors of birds. There are some exotic plants that claim to be beneficial to birds but research has proven these plants to be completely useless for attracting birds. It is best to choose native plants that are good attractors of native birds.
One way to attract certain birds to your garden or pond is to place bird-friendly landscaping items around the area. Adding bird friendly landscaping items such as bird feeders and bird baths can dramatically increase the chances of a bird visiting your landscape. Bird-friendly landscaping items will also provide an ideal spot for nesting. Native plants and flowers will provide the perfect habitat for a variety of different types of birds.
A great way to create a bird-friendly garden is to purchase food plants that are native to North America. Some of the most popular food plants that attract native birds include sugar glider, red-winged blackbird, nuthatches, red-winged aviary finch, kingbird, purple Martin, woodpecker, white-crowned sparrow, and oriole. By purchasing these food plants from an organic garden center or by mail order you are assured that these products are pesticide free and will not harm birds. You can easily find out more information on these food plants by doing a little research online. If you live in an area that is known to have many species of birds that may be threatened or extinct, you should take special precautions with regards to your garden.
One thing to remember when creating a small wildlife pond is that you will want to make sure that there are safe areas for them to nest. This means that you should not put a lot of open water in the area. You should also keep away from using any structures, large or small, to establish a small wildlife pond. Remember that a structure of this size can attract a lot of predators such as hawks, cats, raccoons, rats, and even snakes. A small pond, on the other hand, makes it easy for smaller creatures to hide and sleep.
When creating a small wildlife pond the best thing to do is to add some bird friendly plants and flowers. There are several plants available that are known as “bird friendly” and are especially attractive to small birds. For example, Water lettuce is a beautiful plant that is good for attracting small songbirds and other small animals. The beauty of Water lettuce is what makes it so popular. You will find that there are many plants available that are specifically designed to attract birds and other small creatures.
If you do not feel that you have the time necessary to create a small wildlife pond, you may want to consider purchasing a preformed pond kit. These kits make it easy to create a beautiful and natural pond that is safe for your birds and other small animals. You should be aware, however, that preformed ponds are not usually very deep. This means that if you are looking for an animal or birds to prey on the smaller aquatic plants that you would place in your preformed pond, you may not have the option available to attract that species. You should consider adding a pond filter that is designed to keep small fish and aquatic invertebrates at bay.
