Artificial reservoirs on the site should please the eye.
To achieve this, you need to organize a balanced ecosystem that requires minimal care, otherwise the pond will only bring trouble, not the pleasure of contemplation.
The ecosystem of the reservoir assumes the presence of plants. They should grow both in the coastal zone and in the water. Depending on the wishes, features of the soil and climate, you can choose certain types of plants, but you need to remember that in an artificial reservoir should be representatives of 4 groups, integral to the natural water environment.
In these plants, the visible parts are located on theShore or in shallow water, but the roots are necessarily in the water. These include: reeds, ayr, buttercup, iris bristly, caluzhnitsa. These plants grow over time due to the large amount of moisture that the roots get, which makes it possible to create a very beautiful frame of the pond.
This group of plants is characterized by the fact thatRoots are attached to the bottom of the pond, and the leaves are located under the water or on the surface. Plants are mostly flowering, so the water body with them will look just fabulous. You can decorate the pond with a water lily, a jug or a swamp. These plants additionally help to protect the reservoir from strong sunlight at the expense of wide leaves located on the water - this is necessary in order to prevent harmful microorganisms from multiplying in the pond.
Duckweed, azolla, telomeris and water-wool are characterized byBy the fact that they do not come into contact with the soil, growing and multiplying only on the surface of the water. They, like some deep-sea plants, protect the pond from the sun.
This group of plants does not perform decorativeFunction. They need a pond in order to purify water, absorbing carbon dioxide and secreting oxygen. Thanks to oxygenerators, the biological balance of the reservoir is maintained. This group includes: urout, hornwort, elodea. They are always immersed in water, and due to the rapid multiplication it is enough to drop several cuttings into the pond.
