      Use of Garden Ponds

      Why Choose A Garden Pond?

      Do you enjoy spending time in your garden or outdoor space? Do
      you gain a sense of relaxation and well-being from the sound and
      feel of your natural surroundings? Do you enjoy the sound of
      birds singing, the rustle of plants in the wind, the hum of
      pollinating bees and the scent of flowers in full bloom?

      Garden ponds can improve on that experience by adding a new
      dimension to any outdoor space - from bath tub-sized to a small
      lake, the benefits of a garden pond are potentially available to
      anyone with a little outdoor space.

      Many people find the sight and sound of water to be relaxing,
      even therapeutic. An afternoon by a lake or river can provide the
      perfect antidote to the stresses and pressures of modern life.
      With a garden pond, you can bring that experience back home, and
      recreate it in your own garden.

      In addition, adding water to your garden offers a whole range of
      opportunities to extend and vary the ecosystem of your outdoor
      space and to create a more varied and rich environment right on
      your doorstep.

      What Can I Do With A Garden Pond?

      What can't you do? Given sufficient space, you can even make
      your own private swimming or fishing pond. But for most people, a
      far more modestly-sized pond is enough to create a wonderful
      addition to their garden. Learn more about garden ponds at
      http://www.garden-fountains.com

      Here are a few ideas to get you started.

      Decorative Garden Pond

      By far the most popular type of pond is one that is purely
      decorative. Without too much effort, it is possible to create a
      healthy and sustainable pond, with a variety of attractive
      aquatic plants and perhaps a little animal life too.

      Water lilies provide a practical and attractive way to help keep
      the water free of algae, and with a few carefully chosen plants
      and rocks around the edge of your pond, you will have an
      attractive addition to your garden.

      Fish Ponds

      Garden ponds have a strong association in many people's minds
      with Carp, and formal Japanese gardens. While a true Japanese
      garden takes many years to develop, a healthy fish pond just
      takes a few weeks, and many people enjoy the lustrous colors and
      calming movements of pond fish.

      It's a hobby that just takes a little time each day, and feeding
      and tending to your fish pond can be a relaxing and therapeutic
      way to unwind in the evening after a day's work.

      Educational Garden Ponds

      This is not really a category on its own, because any pond can
      serve as an educational aid for young children, but it is
      important enough to be worth highlighting. Not all schools have
      easy access to natural environments, and the miniature ecosystem
      that can be contained in a garden pond can be a wonderful and
      enjoyable educational tool for young children.

      Tadpoles and frogs are always a favorite, and often seem to
      arrive in ponds all by themselves! Equally, older children will
      learn about the effects of sunlight on plants and water, and how
      it's necessary to maintain a healthy balance between different
      types of plant and animal.

      Garden ponds can be a great educational tool for children (and
      adults!) and if you have young children, you will undoubtedly
      find that they love the garden pond!

      Garden Pond Design

      The creation of a garden pond does not have to be prohibitively
      expensive, but it does require a little time, money and good
      planning.

      Making sure you get the planning right and not cutting corners on
      the construction is the best way to end up with a healthy, easy
      to maintain, and attractive pond, so we've put together a few
      tips to help you design your pond.

      Locating Your Pond

      Before you do anything else, decide where you'd like to have
      your pond. Consider the following points:

      * Aim for a location that gets plenty of sun, especially in more
      temperate climates

      * Stay away from trees whose leaves might end up in the pond -
      consider which way the prevailing wind blows

      * Make sure you choose a location that you will be able to see
      from your porch or patio - after all the effort you will want to
      be able to enjoy the sight of your work.

      * Make sure you can run an electrical supply to the pond - most
      ponds will need a pump or filter of some sort - and you'll need
      a water supply too.

      Building Your Pond

      For smaller ponds, you will have the choice of a rigid or
      flexible liner - a pre-formed rigid liner may be easier to
      install and appear the better choice, but you may struggle to
      find one in the right shape for your chosen location. They are
      also quite hard to get level when you install them.

      A flexible liner, on the other hand, allows you to create a pond
      of almost any shape and size, but requires a little more care and
      effort to install successfully. You can also create a more
      natural look by filling the inside with soil and rocks that allow
      underwater plants to grow.

      Ultimately what's best for you will depend on your budget and
      location, but make sure you research your choices thoroughly, and
      don't underestimate the challenge of installing a pond
      successfully. It's worth considering paying a professional to do
      the job, once you are clear on your requirements.

      Whatever you choose, make sure you take time to enjoy the end
      result and reap the rewards of your own private water garden.
