Garden ponds are static water ponds and can function together with waterfalls, cascades and fountains. Water is an integral part of the natural landscape and a versatile element that provides for better garden microclimate. Adding a garden pond to your landscape adds color, light and movement and functions as a great recreation area. In order to build a pond in your garden, filter systems, biological water treatment and professional maintenance are necessary. Ponds are artificial water features that come in different sizes and configurations (natural outlines or strict geometry), different water volume and pond area, range of materials.
Water garden is a complex ecosystem, requiring right balance. It consists of water features, different groups of plants and aquatic habitats. Garden pond can be either natural or artificial, with certain amount of given plants species. The amount of plants depends on the volume of water that your pond will accommodate. The plants should perform two functions: apart from being ornamental elements, they should absorb carbon dioxide respired by fish and supply water with oxygen. During winter period plants should be removed to the basement.
