Mindful of the needs of the varoius elements we have provided a range of habitat modifications that make a home for many wonderful creatures.
The pond at the centre of the mandala is surounded by plants that provide food for small birds and lizards. Grass seeds for finches and strawberries for Bluetounges.
Stepping stones provide both sunning spots and hiding spots for smaller lizards. And plies of stones and logs make a home for some of the larger animals too.
Around the pond we have solar lights that attract insects at night for frogs and Mandids.
The area is productive too - with water chestnuts, herbs and perenials such as rhubarb often grown here.
A range of frogs, lizards, birds and plants all work together to ensure the pests are kept at levels that do not impact on food production without the inputs of chemicals or time
