In this No Fuss video guide, wildlife expert Kate Bradbury looks at the main elements needed when creating a wildlife pond. She looks at the importance of sloping sides, a wide range of pond plants (including oxgenators, marginal plants, tall stemmed plants and plants such as waterlilies that cover the water surface) plus the need for some dense, low-growing foliage around the pond to provide shelter for emerging wildlife.
