Tiny pond
« on: March 21, 2021, 19:24 »
I am wanting to add a tiny pond to our half allotment.  We are tight on room so am looking for a really tiny one.  What have you used and what has worked?  Pics would be fab!

Hello  I would suggest a pot pond.. save all the hard work. I put one on my patio at home. Not to much for the wildlife but as a feature with fountain. I have another dug pond for wildlife.  A pot could sunk into the ground , but provide an escape route for hedgehogs if you do. Its amazing what wildlife a small amount of water brings in. You wont regret it.  Pictures appear upside down on this site so its a bit hard to see otherwise I would post.

How big is tiny?
I've got a wheelbarrow barrow as my pond. It seems to do the job.

This is interesting as I want a tiny pond too.  Hubby is meant to be getting a plastic barrel cut down for me but me and the frogs are still waiting.  I found a frog in a plastic tub today so they really could do with a nice little pond. 

Like the wheelbarrow pond - has a slope for escape already made 😀

Amazon have a selection of pre-formed ponds, not sure if they have something to fit your small space though.

Our little pond was just some black plastic liner, about 9" deep, folded around a few inches well below the surface, and held down at the edges with stones and a few old bricks! It was about 18" x 12", and a resident toad was established there about three seconds after we filled it!
