Water in your garden

Drinking water for creatures and all your helpful predators, such as birds, frogs and insects is essential, in a healthy ecosystem. Try to include a birdbath or grinding stone, a small pond or even a bog garden in your garden. Besides these items providing life giving water, they are ideal elements to add interest and personality to your garden. A bog garden is a fabulous idea to excite the wild life visitors to your garden. I attended a wonderful talk about garden creatures and the speaker referred to any watering point in your garden as “McDonald’s”, the quick “take away“ where all garden residence will always get a drink and a juicy bug burger in a flash.
