Build a Frog Pond

Go Back

A pond creates a home for frogs and adds a lovely water feature in the garden for you to feast your eyes on. You can design your own, in a few simple steps.

Frog ponds can come in all shapes and sizes. You can even leave out an old plastic kiddy pool or old bath. Let it fill with rainwater and add native plants and rocks.
