But let's not forget about the critters that live in your yard and garden. You can make homes for them and encourage helpful critters to stick around. If you're lucky, you can get a toad or two to take up residence in your yard and help you keep the populations of insects, centipedes and slugs in check. Who wouldn't want that? ;)
So, today I'm showing you how to make a Toad Abode for your backyard!
Here's what I used:
Building your toad abode is super simple. Turn your broken pots upside down. Layer rocks. Have fun with different layouts and substrates. I used peat moss and not dirt because it holds moisture better.
Toad approved? I think so!
Here's another example:
Place them in a safe spot away from pets, like a garden fence corner...
...or nestled among some ground cover.
You'll need to make sure that whatever substrate you choose to use stays moist. Just give it a squirt with a spray bottle every now and then.
There are so many possibilities. You can even decorate your pots with weatherproof paint or sharpies. Maybe drawing little flies on your pot will attract more toads...
