We leave areas of longer grass in the shadier areas and shoosh the froglets into it before mowing - and then we keep our eyes very open indeed and keep stopping to shoosh them back into their nursery!!!

Oh Daisy  

That reminds me of when my daughter and her boyfriend moved into their first place together - they put tubs of plants on the steps and around the parking area - I think they lasted a couple of weeks at the most.    Now she concentrates her energy on the back garden and leaves the front bare.
