Animal Vegetable Miracle Summary
Fostering an inviting environment for wildlife will attract many beneficial animals and promote a vibrant and healthy ecosystem in you
r garden. First let's get health and safety out of the way. Even shallow ponds can be dangerous to babies, toddlers and small children. Make sure the sides are non-slippery; the bottom is deep enough so that if they fall in they don't knock themselves unconscious and shallow enough so they can stand-up. Better still wait until they can swim and understand the dangers involved with water. For additional safety you can fit a custom made grill over the water surface which will bear the weight of a child to prevent them falling in. Ponds are easy to build and also
attract a wealth of wildlife to the garden. It can be small enough to float sticks on or big enough to sale small boats. The choice is yours. Add some fish to it and the entertainment can be endless as the children encourage the fish to the surface by feeding them. Birds and small animals will visit a water source to drink and bathe so provide a bird bath if you don't want to install a pond.
