What a great idea!
I'd like to start with our "water feature" --our one acre pond where we have fish, turtles, snakes, and waterfowl. When we moved here we removed about 20 tires from the pond, cleaned out the "escape" drain, and planted a few water-loving trees (willows, cypress). So far it has paid off, since we have waterfowl that linger here, others that stop on migration, and we hear frogs and peepers at night. We keep paths mowed to the pond and around it, so that we can stroll down with a cup of coffee in the morning and see what is going on. We have friends who come to fish our pond--bass, perch, and catfish. We have logs on the shore for the turtles to sun, a couple of drowned Christmas trees for fingerling fish to hide in, and grasses for the small mammals, like raccoons and bobcats, to feel comfortable coming to get a drink. We dearly love our pond, and all that live in it and use it!
