Water is something that can help recreate nature in your garden. Water is where life started, and where life thrives the most. So it is only natural to use elements of water to bring more life into your garden, and house.Ponds are one of the many ways in which you can incorporate this basic element into your decor. The first step is to identify the type of pond you want. Is it a swimming pond that can be both aesthetically pleasing and ‘swimmable’ in? Or do you prefer the a natural, wildlife pond, where you let nature paint its canvas? Whatever it may be, here’s a guide to help you chose your pond.
Mini Pond: The mini pond is a portable pond that is used solely for decorative purposes. This small pond can be transported easily.
Formal Pond: Formal ponds are mostly geometrical in shape and will go well with geometrical gardens or landscapes. The most common type of formal pond is the rectangular one. Add some ornamental fish to it and your pond is ready!
Fish Pond: A fish pond is made solely for the purpose of growing fish. Any additional feature like aquatic plants, is only to enhance the growth of the fishes in the pond. This will also mean that you have to be more careful about the maintenance of these ponds.
Wildlife Pond: A wildlife pond is one pond that requires very less maintenance. Here you let nature take its course. The pond should be at least 1 m wide. And should have an abundance of aquatic plants and animals in it. Let toads and insects thrive to build a mini ecosystem of its own.
Now you can chose which pond you want! Choose one that best matches your creativity and imagination.
