Quick Guide to Water Gardening

by:KingKonree     2020-07-18
If you are thinking of enhancing your landscape options and increasing the esthetic appeal of your home, you must consider a water feature. For the home gardener, water features can be both exciting and rewarding. What other aspect of your landscape can add the relaxing sound of moving water, allow you to use new and different plants, and attract animals and birds into your yard? There are four different types of water features you may want to consider when thinking about your water garden. These are ponds, streams, waterfalls and fountains. Ponds can be divided into two different types: formal and informal. *Formal ponds, often called pools, are characterized by neat regular borders. They may have an edge that is circular or straight in nature. Pools can be raised or at ground level and have a formal 'man made' look. *An informal pond looks as if it was designed by nature. The only limit for designing and informal pond is your imagination. Your pond may look like a secluded mountain treasure, a secret desert oasis, a charming oriental garden, or what ever else comes to mind: it's your choice. The edges of an informal pond are at ground level and are camouflaged with rocks, stones and plants. Your pond can be either small or large; whatever your space limitations are. When considering an informal pond you may want the flexibility and convenience of a pond kit. Pond kits contain everything you need but the stone, water, and plants, and are just the 'ticket' for the beginner. Streams are generally used as a connecting waterway between two features; usually a waterfall and pond. Streams may be either fast moving or slow, and the natural features of your yard will in part determine your stream choice. A stream will require a pump to move the water from the pond back up to the waterfall. Erosion, seasonal runoff, and silt deposits are a few of the special considerations one should plan for when thinking of a stream. Waterfalls may either be a water feature that empties into a pond or stream or a disappearing waterfall. A disappearing waterfall is just that: the water disappears into the ground, is then collected in an underground basin, and is pumped back up to the waterfall. Usually the water basin is covered with rock or stone for a natural transition. The advantages of a disappearing waterfall is that it doesn't have to run constantly, there is no visible, standing water and it does not require a lot of space. When building any waterfall your top priority is making sure that it is waterproof. A disappearing waterfall kit will help insure your success and make your project the perfect addition to your landscape. Fountains can come in just about any size, shape, or form. They may be free standing or be included within a pond. If you are considering a pond with fish or plants, a fountain is an excellent way of aerating the water by providing a continuous source of oxygen. Fountains may act as a sound barrier, and as with any water feature the sound and movement of the water will enable you to relax and enjoy a 'bit of nature.' Make your yard a 'home within your home' by adding a water feature that brings you years of pleasure and enjoyment.
