Water gardens are often the most beautiful gardens around any home.
The blending of water and earth creates a corresponding balance that relaxes the body and mind as it inspires the soul. Yet water gardens can be intimidating, too.
At first glance they may seem to be complicated places filled with unfamiliar plants with unusual needs. Happily, aquatic plants can be simpler to care for than they first appear.
When choosing aquatic plants, keep in mind that the plants should cover no more than 50 – 60 percent of the water surface. There are many types to choose from. Some are free floating while others are marginals to submerged. Selection depends on the size of the pond and the kind of look you want.
Water lilies can add drama and fragrance even in small tubs. Some plants provide oxygen and help keep the pool healthy. Fish can be a beneficial addition, because they are good scavangers, cleaning up debris. They also can help control mosquito larva, and other insects.
All garden pools regardless of size will need maintenance throughout the year. With proper planning you can ensure a healthy balance between living and decorative features of a water garden that can almost care for itself with simple maintenance inputs from you.
Whether you want delicate floating plants, exotic water lilies, or carnivorous bog dwellers, you’ll find suitable choices for your taste and climate conditions.
