A garden pond may be the way to spice up your landscape design.
Garden ponds are a gorgeous way to beautify your landscaping and hardscaping and add major curb appeal to your home. Here is what you need to know about garden k" href="http://www.rhinelandscaping.com/blog/benefits-pondless-water-features/">ponds before you take the plunge and make a splash!
Every garden pond needs basic elements to keep it clean and safe for your family. No matter what, your garden pond will need:
Natural garden ponds are designed to look like they just appeared in your yard naturally (hence the name). They have free-form edges that are not rigid or straight. They often use stones or other natural materials to help the garden pond blend in.
These ponds still incorporate natural elements like native plants, but have more formally-defined boundaries using bricks, concrete, or patio pavers. Semi-natural garden ponds are often blended into other hardscaping features around the home instead of the landscaping.
These garden ponds have rigid boundaries and do not need to use any natural materials or plants. Formal garden ponds typically use mortared stone or concrete and can be used as reflecting pools or in conjunction with surrounding hardscaping. Formal garden ponds are also often used to show off impression fish collections.
One of the most important decisions you’ll make for your garden pond is the location. Try to choose a place in your yard where the pond will get a burst of sun in the morning and shade during the afternoon. If you choose a spot that is sunny all day, you could develop problems with algae blooms.
