Water gardens and Koi ponds are relatively new to most people in the U.S., but have thrived for hundreds of years in Europe and Asia.
Anyone who has toured the countryside in England has to admire the many beautiful water gardens adorning every village and countryside home.
Numerous beautiful colors of flowering water plants are available in day blooming and night blooming varieties and in many sizes to fit the needs of every size pond from a small tub garden to a large agricultural pond. Plants provide protection for fish and other aquatic life, and help reduce algae bloom and evaporation.
Water gardening is low maintenance gardening and requires less water than a lawn of equal size. Cool and refreshing sounds of splashing water, or the serenity of calm, still water make the enjoyment well worth the little time one takes to care for the beautiful landscape of a water garden.
With the development of flexible pond liners, constructing a pond has become affordable. Pond liners conform to the shape of the pond whether it is in the ground or above, or both. They are easy to install and have a long life.
