We have experience in creating unique aquatic habitat areas designed for freshwater amphibians and reptiles. This requires creating small ponds on your property working with the natural lay of the land and where water run off can accumulate. Furthermore, any excess spoil which the building of the ponds brings up goes into beetle banks and mounds near the pond sites. These banks get seeded with wild flower and long grass seed creating shelter and cover for small wildlife. Also, building permiable dams along small watercourses, these would be made from locally sourced timber. The aim here is to create wetland areas along small streams and watercourses.
Creating and maintaining these fresh water ponds, dams and habitat areas is a great option for anyone with the space and desire to increase the biodiversity of their surroundings. Help tackle problems of increasing urbanisation and the loss of habitat at a local level. By creating habitat ponds you will be helping to prevent the extinction of various endangered species found with in Southern England.
