Hi, my father in law and husband have kindly created a raised nature pond. It is a liner with varying depths and designed to attract dragonflies etc. There are rocks for them to bask on and tall shrubs by one side, including a conifer. We have a ramp at one side for amphibians and the shallow edges at the top and bottom make it easy for frogs to get out too. Since the pic I've added a solar water feature which keeps it moving just a little.
as for plants, I have put oxygenator plants, 2 miniature water lillies and a few flag iris in but I'm wondering if there's anything else I could do to attract dragonflies? The, water boatmen and water beetles have already moved in. Midges and mosquitoes circle it daily too.
