Small children can drown in just a few inches of water, so wait until yours are old enough to appreciate the dangers before installing a water feature. If you have older children with younger siblings, fit a custom-made metal grill over the water surface and ensure it will take the weight of a child, should he or she fall.

Wrap planting around your pond to create shelter for wildlife, such as birds, frogs and toads.
