This is my new garden! This is the old pond, which constructed by a previous resident who worked very hard to create a large and very solid fishpond. The pond’s steep sides, the short mown grass around the pond, and lack of planting make this a dangerous area for wildlife to visit. Once in, hedgehogs may not be able to get out of the pond and are at risk of being trapped in the water and drowning. Young frogs, toads, and news are at risk of being chopped up finely by the lawn mower.
