When you provide … they will come
One of the 4 key components of a Backyard Wildlife Habitat is water with the other 3 being food, cover and places to raise young. Providing water can be as simple as placing a bird bath in the garden or as complicated as installing a pond.
I have provided a bird bath, installed a small, molded pond as well as creating downspout watering holes.
Galvanized tubs are placed under downspouts to catch the rain. Animals now use them as a summer home. The tubs are surrounded by river rock which allows the water to flow into the gardens without washing the soil away.
At every water source animals who share this space come to drink, sun themselves and play.
