Toads are very helpful in the garden. They eat unwanted insects that can damage your plants. I decided to invite toads to live in my garden by building them a home.
A friend had given me several gourds that she had grown in her garden last year. I thought these would make cute toad houses.
First, drill an opening in the bottom of the gourd with a circle drill bit.
Then, remove all the seeds.
Next, paint or decorate the gourd however you wish. I decided to paint mine to look like a toad.
Finally, set the house in the garden and wait for renters.
