Ponds are wonderful things to have in gardens, for humans and wildlife alike. They can be restful or exhilarating, especially if combined with a water pump. They are ideal places of refuge for newts, frogs, and other amphibians, as well as attracting insects such as dragonflies and water boatmen.
If the pond has been created using pond liners then it’s essential to hide the edges of the liners to create the perfect, natural looking water feature. It also provides hiding places for wildlife to shelter from the elements and predators.
Pebbles, flagstones, and boulders of varying sizes and shapes can help form the framework to partially disguise the edges.
Adding plants should be the finishing touch as they can completely hide pond liners as they grow down to the water’s edge. As well as offering extra visual attractions by softening and expanding the pond’s shape naturally.
Including a mix of different shape and size plants all helps to create a more natural and visually exciting pond area.
Ponds are a great addition to any garden. With these plants, seamlessly incorporate a natural water feature that will leave you feeling peaceful and in harmony with nature.
