A Wildlife Pond can be an Environmental Haven.

An ecologically balanced Wildlife Pond can promote plant life and aquatic life as well as encourage other animals to use the pond as a water source.Due to the continued changes that occur every day to our environments. It’s becoming more important than ever to protect our countryside’s Wildlife. Not only is it great for the environment but it also gives you somewhere to relax surrounded by a natural landscape and local wildlife.

Wildlife pond construction can be a very delicate job. Any natural materials used during the construction should be sourced from the local landscape or should be native to the area in order to keep the wildlife pond as natural as possible. You may have rare or endangered species using the wildlife pond for a variety of reasons, so strict care must always be taken, and professional advice sought before any works are carried out on a wildlife habitat. When planting in a wildlife pond there are wide range of aquatic plants to choose from so you will be spoilt for choice.

Wildlife Pond Management is an important part of keeping your wildlife pond a healthy vibrant habitat, a good wildlife pond management scheme will ensure your wildlife pond does not become ecologically imbalanced, fill up with silt, become overgrown or completely dry up.
