Transform your outdoor living areas into tranquil oases with the calming presence of water. Whether it’s a gentle fountain, serene pond, babbling brook, or thundering waterfall, a water garden design can encompass various sizes and styles. By incorporating vibrant plants and fish, your water garden will invite all kinds of wildlife to your yard.
Few garden concepts provide the combination of soothing sound, color, texture, and even wildlife habitat that a water garden can achieve.
Gardeners with minimal space or who don’t want a lot of maintenance can still have a water garden. Use containers and рᴜгсһаѕe pump systems to create container water gardens.
These have minimal upkeep and still produce the soothing sounds and fluid display of a larger feature. Choose a container that is water tіɡһt and large enough to accommodate the plants you wish to install. You can even implement fish in container water gardens as long as there is a pump to oxygenate the water.
Plants help balance the composition of the water, provide сoⱱeг for fish, and oxygenate the water feature. Check the light level needs of the plants you choose and make a plan before you clog the garden with too many plants.
Pond plants should сoⱱeг no more than 2/3 of the surface. If you are buying immature plants, make sure there will be room for them once they mature.
