Wildlife Pond and Sculpture in Summertown


This picture shows a wildlife pond in summertown, with a sculpture behind supposed to reflect in the water and open up a dark space in the corner of the garden.


When I say ‘Wildlife’ pond, to us it still means a pond which we created, but we didn’t add a filtering system, or other means to maintain it artificially (like chemicals), we made it deep enough to discourage algae, we added oxygenating plants, and we didn’t add fish to the pond. The pond has since become a haven for wildlife encouraging birds into the garden to drink, and having resident frogs, as well as being an insect habitat. This has allowed the family to enjoy their shared interest in British wildlife, in their own back yard.
