Garden Spider On a frosty or dewy morning our gardens are often decorated by lacy spiders’ webs. These webs are the work of garden spiders. As the name suggests these are commonly found in gardens as well as parks and woodland areas. Spider silk is extremely strong; each thread is about 0.02mm in diameter and has the relative strength of a strand of steel of the same size. The web is very important to the garden spider and so it is rebuilt each day or whenever it is damaged. Before rebuilding the spider will consume the silk and recycle the material in their body.
