Today, you have a huge amount of funds for the design and arrangement of the pond. You can choose different materials, garden elements for decoration, apply certain technologies - there is no limit to perfection. However, the design should be approached with skill. To begin with, it would be useful to get acquainted with the main directions in its design:
In the first case, the reservoir is characterized by a strict geometric shape - it can be a circle, an oval, a square, a rectangle or an ellipse. Its design is in the form of the letter "G".Such a pond is ideal for small garden plots. It embodies elegance, restraint and elegance. The combination of strict forms and a small depth, allowing to consider fish or plants on the bottom, make it surprisingly beautiful and fascinating.
In formal ponds, the emphasis is on the water surface, so plan
A free pond is rightly considered the complete opposite of the formal pond. The picture of its shoreline can be very different, and the feature is that over time - enough two to three years - it turns into a natural one.
This pond is ideal for breeding fish and is a "clean canvas" for decorating and decorating, since there is no need to zealously maintain the strict geometry of its forms. It should be noted that care for him is required the most thorough, especially in the maintenance of aesthetic plantation.
If you are thinking about how to decorate a pond in the country, pay attention to such an eye-pleasing element as a fountain. Due to its dynamism, it safely saturates the pond with oxygen, necessary for fish and plants;prevent the reproduction of green algae. For the device of the fountain you will need a special pump of one kind or another.
If the height of the fountain jet does not exceed 2 meters, use an underwater pump, for a higher jet, its surface analog will be required.
The principle of operation of this product is quite simple: through suction pipes, water flows from the pond to the pump, where it is released under pressure from the output pipes. However, it should be taken into account that the power of the surface pump is greater than that of the underwater one, so it requires better technical equipment. If the arrangement of the pond at the dacha requires the presence of any other dynamic elements - cascades or small waterfalls - pumping equipment will also have to come in handy.
A nice addition to the fountains in the garden pond will be its lighting in the dark. Fixtures can be installed on a special support or mounted directly on the Christmas tree nozzle. As a rule, for such lighting devices, halogen bulbs are used, whose power ranges from 5 to 75 W.Their light output is about 3 times greater than that of traditional incandescent lamps.
Fountain figures in the form of animals, ancient heroes, flowers became widespread for decoration. They allow you to make the garden area more cozy and romantic, and the pond itself - more attractive, mysterious and alluring. If you want to abandon the standard solutions, then think about buying moving fountains that float freely on the surface of the water.
An artificial reservoir is difficult to imagine without a formalized coastal zone and plants. They emphasize his overall style, making it more "alive."The following plants were most widely used for the pond in the country:
Plants with a powerful root system are ideal for strengthening the shores of a pond. Blossoming plants are chosen depending on the style of the garden and the pond, so, for the site in the Japanese style, the Iris Siberian, the small daylily, the three-leaved watch are perfect. If there are coniferous trees in the garden, tuja, spruce, juniper can be used to decorate the pond. If the soil near the reservoir is marshy, then a good choice will be astilba, krasnodeva, kaluzhnitsa.
If you want, you can decorate the plants with a pond, not just its coastal zone. For these purposes, a luxurious water lily, rdest floating - they are deep-sea species, as their rhizomes find support at the bottom. As shallow plants can be planted an arrowhead, a chasuha, an earthen head. To the floating on the surface include a well-known duckweed, pemphigus.
It is worth considering that the choice of plants will be somewhat limited if you want to breed fish. So, pemphigus will absorb fish food, and in time the unshaved duckweed will "strangle" the body of water, which will also negatively affect the processes of vital activity of fish.
A pond containing river or ornamental fish requires proper care. You will have to constantly ensure that the water temperature does not fall below the prescribed mark, and in winter the fish had a source of oxygen. Of course, there should not be any talk about decay processes in a water body - it should always be clean.
Thus, a competent approach to the question of how to improve a pond in the country, will allow you to become the owner of a beautiful pond that not only surprises the guests, but will regularly delight you.
