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 it with water and wait for a day before adding the plants. A basin can be separated by stones from the rest of the space. It will look like a natural pond when you schedule a small waterfall and lots of plants and flowers around it. 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 yard, you can arrange a wellness area with a small fountain.
