Water Gardens The Beauty Within

Water Gardens Give Beauty

Water gardens

Water gardens

Water plants are absolutely essential to a water garden. They keep algae from growing. They provide shade and cover for your fish. They also add beauty when the water lilies bloom.  There’s nothing like seeing a big beautiful bloom on top of water. Plus your frogs will be basking in the sun on top of the lily leaves. It’s such a sight to see but look quick cause when they see you they will go right back in the water garden. Plus many fish attach their eggs to the bottom of the lily leaves making like a little nursery for your baby fish. Just don’t expect to see the baby fish in your water garden for at least a year or two. Because they will be hiding in the rocks until they get big enough that they will not be eaten. Because many fish will eat their young. Once they get to a certain size the adults will leave them alone. Water gardens in my yard have many different meanings. There are water gardens for beauty and water gardens for work. There are water gardens for storage and some are for breeding fish. One for winter storage(in the greenhouse). And even water gardens that really breed the frogs, although they all do this. Water gardens also draw many animals. Snails, frogs, raccoon, and skunk. You may even have the great blue heron visit your water gardens. He is an unwelcome visitor to your water gardens though. He will eat your fish.

Eco Friendly

When you have a water garden you have a complete ecosystem. You should do your part to give the fish and animals all they need. To create a great home for them to grow and thrive. When you make it easy for them they will make it easy on you.  When the winter comes be sure to not let your pond freeze over solid. Keep a hole in the ice for the harmful gases to escape letting fresh oxygen get into the water. This can be done by running a bubbler or a pump to keep the water circulating. Moving water will not freeze solid and keep your pond and fish healthy. You should also try to remove as much debris as possible to keep the harmful gases at a minimum. Fish that cannot breathe good oxygenated water will die shortly there after. Make your appointment today and shop from our extensive list of water plants, bamboo and perennials. (859)635-0922 Jeff.
