The garden pond is do
The garden pond can be built using different materials.
My first decorative pond was a fish tank. dug into the ground. I put two nymphs, the rhizomes of which were stored all winter in the fridge in the bag with the moss. In early spring the rhizomes were planted in plastic containers (drilled in the bottom holes) and put into the aquarium.
Nymphs were blooming in this little garden the pond all summer. And then the container with the rhizome wintered safely in storage along with the potatoes.
In the spring of sprawling nymphs were removed from containers. Every rhizome I shared several delenkami with points of growth.
The number of nymphs increased, and it was necessary to solve the problem of construction in the garden this decorative pond.
Variants of the device of a garden pond
When building a small garden pond, the easiest option is to purchase a special plastic bowl – base of the reservoir. Remains you want to rush purchased the bowl in the ground and pouring water.
It’s convenient, but I wanted to have in the garden decorative pond much more roomy.
Do pond thoroughly (with a special film for ponds, the lining of geotextile under the film, etc.) I was once. Decided to do easier.
For the construction of an ornamental pond dug in the garden a pit 50 cm deep Lined the bottom of the pit,made good the wall (at an angle of about 45 degrees) and lined with a bowl of the pond next ordinary greenhouse film of stabilized polyethylene of a thickness of 150 μm.
The walls of the reservoir at the top end with a step for them I pressed the edges of the film.
The film was placed in the bed of the pond freely, wrinkled, to avoid excessive tension when filling the reservoir with water.
Further the upper part of the walls of the pond above the water I closed my black lutrasilom (spunbond). The pond looks so much better. Besides, under the black polyethylene lutrasilom slower old – not so quickly loses its elasticity.
In summarizing the results of many years of use of a simple garden pond using conventional stable plastic film.
First, this design is a decorative pond turned out to be quite viable. Problems with mechanical damage to the film (by plant roots, rodents) and other horrors were not.
Secondly, plastic sheeting for the winter can not be removed. Then in the spring will be less of a hassle with the launch of a reservoir, and automatically forms a starting supply of water in the pond.
And last conclusion: the polyethylene film in the reservoir is at least two seasons, and with careful handling, even longer.
Thus, as a simple version of a garden pond film design is acceptable.
Of course, if you have the desire and the opportunity, it is better to build an ornamental pond more capital.
First of all, when constructing a garden pond it is desirable to use a special film for ponds. It is more reliable and durable than plastic.
For protection from damage spaceplane’s wise to shoot the prepared bed of the reservoir geotextile is a special synthetic non-woven material.
