Design a dream oasis of well-being and relaxation – we will give you tips and ideas on how to create a water garden.
How to design a water garden – find the right place
Before you create a water garden, consider the optimal location. At least 0.6 meters deep and at least 2.84 wide, to provide a broad space. If you dig a hole for the pond, make sure that the edge level is the same everywhere. Fill the pond with water and wait for a day before adding the water plants. A garden pond can be separated by stones from the rest of the garden. It will look like a natural pond when you schedule a small waterfall and lots of plants and flowers around the pond. The water garden should be a haven of peace, which is why you should organize a pergola and small sitting area. Choose furniture made from natural materials so that it does not disturb the overall picture. If you have a small garden, you can arrange a wellness area with a small water fountain.
Water garden design – flowers, plants, decoration
Decorate the water garden with fresh spring flowers. Water attracts the birds, so you can build a bird house nearby. Statues give the garden a classic look. Lanterns of iron also contribute to comfort in the evening and create a romantic atmosphere. Also, they would prevent the risk that you might stumble over the stones. Aquatic plants usually need sunlight. The water lilies are a perfect addition to design, as well as some climbing plants. Stones with moss will give a natural look to the pond. If you want to create a koi pond, you need to think in advance what do you do with the fish in the winter. Get inspired by these creative examples and create a paradise in your backyard!
