Cwm Head Pool


The benefits of ponds & trees

It is always rewarding to encourage the customer to incorporate a pond in their garden. The benefits to nature are exponential; life emerges from water like no other environment and feeds a great pyramid of creatures.

From the minute water daphnia to water boatmen, frogs, newts, fish and dragonflies, each supports pool a boundless array of bird spices. Mammals like voles, water shrews and if you are lucky, otters will join you in time.

To augment the potential benefit, 1,200 additional hedging trees have been planted this autumn surrounding the pool and link wildlife corridors across the site. There is no more generous gift for future nature survival. An extra layer of biodiversity will emerge from the addition of a traditional orchard, still early in its age. This is yet another exciting development in this ongoing project.

I look forward to continuing work on this project with the addition of nesting sites and suitable access for all to enjoy. I will continue to post ongoing updates!

More about orchards

Traditional orchards, although essentially a crop, can provide remarkable havens for wildlife. A visit to a traditional orchard reveals gnarled old trunks of fruit and nut trees bursting with blossoms and young leaves in springtime, with wildflowers and insects populating summer’s long grass, and foraging wildlife attracted by autumn’s fallen fruit.
