Creative tips on how to enjoy a small pond in the garden
Water is an element that should not be missing in a beautifully designed and well-tended garden, because “Water is not everything, but without water everything is nothing!“This is also proven by our picture gallery! Take a look and see for yourself!
Water fascinates everyone and is part of our life like light, air and love. That is why you shouldn’t miss out on creating at least a small oasis in your own garden that provides pleasant refreshment on hot summer days. That would of course be wonderful and very romantic! The rippling of still water, the clear sky and small clouds above! This image can only exude unadulterated lightness, calm and serenity, can’t it? If you want to create a garden pond, you can undoubtedly experience this romance on a daily basis. In addition, the water gives Plants and animals habitat. How do you like the idea?
Gardens and terraces are truly enlivened by the natural effects of the water. And it shouldn’t always be a big, wide pond out there. A small basin filled with water also serves the purpose of securing a little refreshment in your garden. It doesn’t really matter whether it is a large terracotta pot or a simple basin. The main thing is that you can refresh yourself at the sight of the cool element and enjoy life energy and relaxation. In addition, clear lines and simple shapes convey a lot of calm in garden design and radiate simplicity and purity. The shape, colors and materials of the garden pond should be carefully thought out at the beginning of the project, because they should definitely harmonize with one another. This is the only way that everything in your garden – plants, garden furniture and water could be in harmony.
Moving water is a real source of inspiration due to the quiet splashing. A good side effect is that the bubbling enriches the water with oxygen. This prevents annoying algae from forming on the surface of your garden pond. And something else can help against it. Floating aquatic plants with large leaves give the water shade and coolness. This also curbs the excessive growth of algae. However, leaves that fall into the nearby trees should always be removed from the surface of the water.
For the planting of small ponds and water basins, small-growing plants that do not spread very much or spread quickly are best. Plants that are too big or too lush should be cut regularly and made smaller. Spring is the best time to cut off old or dead plants and remove them from the water. Those who couldn’t survive the cold winter should be destroyed. But the other, fresh-looking aquatic plants will beautify your small or large garden pond again this spring!
We wish you and your friends and family a lot of fun outside in the garden!
