Pond Tips – Linlithgow Wildlife Pond

This is part of a big wildlife pond Stuart has just finished near Linlithgow. The beach, large stones, timber and heavy planting with big native plants (marsh marigold, flag iris, water forget me not, water mint etc.) all provide different structures for invertebrates and amphibians to use. The pool was also immediately put to use as a source of drinking water by the swallows that have just arrived back from Southern Africa. There will also be lots of wildflower round the pool and this, combined with some of the grass being left long and a lot of native hedgerow planting, will provide cover for the frogs and other animals when they leave the pond. It will also look great
