Artificial ponds in the area should be pleasing to the eye.
To achieve this, it is necessary to organize a balanced ecosystem that requires minimal maintenance, otherwise the pond will bring only trouble, not the pleasure of his contemplation.
The ecosystem of the reservoir requires a plant. They have to grow, and in the coastal zone, and in the water. Depending on the wishes of the soil and climate features, you can select specific types of plants, but we must remember that in an artificial reservoir should be representatives of the 4 groups, inherent to the natural aquatic environment.
Plants of coastal zone
These visible parts of the plant located onshore or in shallow water, but the roots are definitely in the water. These include: the reeds, calamus, buttercups, iris bristly, marigold. These plants grow over time due to the large amount of moisture, which is produced by the roots, which allows to create a beautiful pond setting.
This group of plants characterized in thatroots are attached to the bottom of the reservoir, and the leaves are located underwater or on the surface. Plants are mostly flowering, so the pond with them will look just fabulous. Decorate the pond can be water lily, egg capsules or bolototsvetnikom. These plants further help to protect the pond from strong sunlight by broad leaves located on the water - it is necessary to ensure that in the pond did not breed harmful microorganisms.
Duckweed, azolla, telorez and vodokras characterizedthat they are not in contact with the soil, brought forth and multiply only in the surface of the water. They, like some deep-sea plants, protect the pond from the sun.
This group of plants is not fulfilling a decorativefunction. They need a pond to purify water by absorbing carbon dioxide and releasing oxygen in return. Thanks oxygenators, support the biological equilibrium of the pond. This group includes: Eurasian water milfoil, hornwort, waterweed. They are always immersed in water, but due to the rapid multiplication drop enough in the pond a few cuttings.
