High Quality Pond Liners Make Creating Frog Habitats Easy and Affordable
Posted by Canopies Tarps on May 14th 2014
Are you looking for a fun, fabulous way to teach the kids about nature and create a certified wildlife habitat at the same time? If so, you may want to think about investing in pond liners and creating a habitat for frogs. With knowledge and the rightpond liner, its a lot easier than many people imagine.
At Canopies and Tarps, we have pond liners that are perfect for creatingfrog habitatsof all sizes. Plus, we can custom design pond liners to accommodate whatever shape you have in mind for your certified wildlife habitat. On top of that, the liners have an average mass of 9.3 ounces and are 20 mil thick. So even young children can help carry small sections of pond liner around without breaking a sweat.
The liners happen to be tear and puncture resistant too, which makes them ideal for supporting certain types of aquatic and terrestrial plant life that frogs need to thrive. For aquatic plants, wed suggest using water lilies, sedges, pennyworts and grasses. Frogs seem to love using them for nesting sites and protection from natural predators.
As for the terrestrial plants to put around the outside of the pond liner, wed recommend looking into oak leaf hydrangeas, toad lilies, ferns, Jack-in-the-Pulpits, trilliums and wild ginger. They can easily be established with the aid of rip-rap, soil conditioners, no-float mulch and sand. Plus, they tend to look attractive and require little maintenance too.
We should also note that our durable pond liners are suitable for use with soaker hoses. They are normally placed at the bottom of frog ponds and attached to rain barrels as an eco-friendly way to help replenish any water lost due to normal evaporation. However, if not paired with high quality liners like ours, they could end up creating leaks and jeopardizing the frog ponds eco-system over time.
Once the frog pond is established, certifying it as a wildlife habitat is easy. Just go on the National Wildlife Federations website and fill in the appropriate form.
