Construction of a pond at the Grand Potager de Fontenille

A pond has been built by the animation team of the Grand Potager. A new feature of the garden, it is a real refuge for biodiversity: dragonflies, toads, frogs, newts, birds, beetles, etc. These animals will be all the more beneficial for the garden as they are well-known predators of certain pests. Toads love slugs and snails! Plants such as water lilies should also be planted in the pond. 

To waterproof a pond, there are several solutions like concrete or EPDM sheeting. We opted for the last option because it is a recyclable and very solid material. All that remains is to wait for the rain to fill the pond!
