What makes a 'water source'? Recommendations?
I am in the process of creating a somewhat native/wildlife back yard. Oaks and pines there already. Added Juneberry, dogwood, and redbud trees as well as perrenials like lobelia, scabiosa, phlox, and a variety of herbs. I have a small, shallow saucer that I try to keep filled (it evaporates quickly in the summer)that is suspended on my fence. Are there any other suggestions for a "water source" for wildlife? What do you think is the best? Fountain? Small pond? I don't have a lot of room and my professions deals with mosquito-borne disease, so I need something that I can easily treat or empty every week!
Thanks for your thoughts
