Bathtub Frog Pond

Turn a bathtub into a backyard frog pond! Place the tub in a partially sunny location of your yard, away from any trees with falling leaves. Nearly fill the tub with soil that is safe for amphibians, partially bury standing planters in the soil to provide the pond with cover and partially bury smaller planters for emergent and submergent plants. Plant frog-friendly plants in the planters, such as water lilies, cattails, duckweed or arrowhead, that help with oxygenating the water and partially covering the water from sunlight to prevent algae. Set rocks and logs around the bathtub for added decor and winter shelter for the frogs and toads, and consider placing a bug house nearby to provide your frogs with a food source.
