Description
Frogs, toads, and dragonflies all need freshwater ponds for egg laying to create future generations. Even a tiny pond will attract and support them. Learn what a true wildlife pond is (with no need for running water, filters, fish, and all the fuss), how simple it is to create, and how to maintain it so that wildlife benefits. Learn which native plants to add to the pond (and which problem plants to avoid).
