What’s a Water Garden and Why Do You Need One?
A water garden is a beautiful and functional addition to any outdoor space. It’s an area filled with aquatic plants and fish, often accompanied by features like fountains, waterfalls, or ponds. They’re known for attracting wildlife and increasing the biodiversity of an area.
These offer more than just visual appeal to your yard. They can also enhance air quality, creating a healthy and serene environment. This tranquil atmosphere adds year-round beauty to your landscape, making it a peaceful place to enjoy.
Factors to Consider While Curating Your Feature
Before diving into your project, there are a few things to consider for an optimal installation:
Choosing the right spot for your water feature is crucial. Avoid low spots to prevent runoff, place it away from tree drip lines, and position it where you can fully experience the benefits.
The size of your feature will depend on the available space and your personal preference. Just make sure it’s not too small or too large for the surrounding landscape.
There are various options for construction, including pre-formed plastic or fiberglass ponds, lined with rubber or PVC depending on your personal preferences.
Plants and Fish
Choose plants and fish that are suitable for your climate and the size of your water garden. Some popular choices include water lilies, lotus, koi fish, and goldfish.
Regular circulation aerates the water in your garden, keeps plants and fish healthy, and prevents the water from freezing solid in winter. The right pump for the size of your pond will do the trick nicely.
While these types of gardens may be low maintenance, they still require regular upkeep such as pruning plants, removing debris, and testing water quality to maintain this beauty’s longevity.
