Trident Water Garden Features – Ponds

A pond can be a great feature to have in a garden as it attracts a lot of notice and can add to the life of the garden. Few garden water features can match a pond speckled with water lilies on a sunny day. There are a few things to remember when deciding to add a pond to you garden. There may be problems with algae, dirty water and unhealthy fish.

When adding a pond to your garden you must consider the whole ecosystem of your garden. For example, a pond may attract a lot of flies including mosquitoes, therefore its a good idea to add a few fish to the pond. The fish will reduce the numbers of flies around the pond. On the other hand too many fish will mean that your water will get dirty quickly. If fish are added to the pond then its important to keep track of the pH level.

Once you’ve studied that a pond is for you there are various methods to build your pond.

Trident Water Garden Features – Fountains

The best thing about adding a fountain as your garden water feature is that it adds a focal point to your garden. This is also a warning. As it instantly becomes a focal point its important to take time to consider that time of fountain that you want to erect.

Do you have pets?
If so, make sure that the fountain is high enough to prevent your pets from drinking/bathing in the fountain. Birds may also see the fountain as a bathing pool.

Do you like the sound of running water?
Consider placing the fountain near the area where you sit out. The sound of running water from the fountain can add to the sense of serenity and tranquillity in your garden.
