Major League Garden

Make a mini pond in your garden

+3 Goals
1 h
Once per season

Quite a few famous footballers end their careers "across the pond", playing Major League Soccer.

Move your garden up a league with a wildlife pond. You won't need to fly to America to cross it.

What difference does it make?

Wildlife need water to thrive. More and more ponds get drained, so even tiny garden ponds help.

What do you need?

  • Old washing up bowl (with no hole in)
  • Stones and pebbles
  • 1 or 2 water plants
  • Garden fork or spade

Step by step

How big should the bowl be?

The bigger the better. It could also be something like an old cat litter tray. Needs to hold water.

Are plants important? What kind should I get?

You need to use water plants. Best is call a local gardening centre and see what they recommend.

Which animals is it good for? Won't I attract mosquitos?

All sorts of birds and insects benefit from a local water source. You'll also find water snails and interesting bugs making a home there.

There might be some mosquitos, but they will be eaten up by predators like dragonflies and birds.
