As part of the redevelopment of the lawn area, we decided to build a small pond tucked in behind the raised vegetable bed.. We'd already found a Marsh Frog hiding under a birdbath, so we knew they were present in our garden. So we
1. dug the hole, lined it with pond liner, and decorated the edges so there were nooks and crannies for small creatures to hide in;
2. added water, and water-loving loving plants; and ...
3. ...the frogs will arrive. That's the theory anyway.
So far it has been used by magpies and currawongs and other birds, with the occasional damselfly making also an appearance, but we are hopeful of one day finding tadpoles.
