The Water Garden Pond

See the Water Garden Pond in BACKWASH Mode

A Water Garden Pond is a pond built for the garden. It is designed with water plants, rocks, boulders, gravel, and waterfalls. When heavily planted with aquatic plants, and placed within a heavily planted landscape, a Water Garden Pond can have the appearance of "always being there", as if Mother Nature herself built it.

Water garden ponds are much more attractive than lawns, or any other landscaping item within the landscape.A Water Garden Pond contains fish, usually goldfish or similar category pond fish, but small Koi can be raised in a Water Garden Pond. (Koi tend to "out-grow" Water Garden Ponds rather quickly.) The pond is also designed with multiple water plant shelves of varying depths. The first shelf, called the "Marginal Shelf", is usually 2"-8" deep to accommodate bog and marginal water plants. The second shelf, known as the "Lily Shelf", is typical 10"-16" deep to accommodate most water lilies. The next shelf is simply referred to as the "Deep Area". In Water Garden Ponds, the "Deep Area" is usually only 18"-24" deep. The "Deep Area" is usually a small percentage of the overall pond's total size.
