Every water garden is unique. So much depends on the water garden’s location. Some shade and shelter from the wind is beneficial.
Some of the benefits of having a water garden are evident. They are beautiful! The sound of moving water is universally pleasing. It reminds us of pleasant things and our connection with nature. A well done water garden can transform an ordinary landscape into a magnetic point of interest. Birds are attracted to water gardens. Beautiful iridescent dragonflies will soon become part of the new habitat.
The decision to add a water garden to your landscape should not be taken too lightly. There is a certain amount of maintenance and education needed to enjoy a successful creation. First being, the actual siting and construction. What do you want to do with your water garden? Do you want fish? Do you just want plants? Do you have small children that will frequent the area? These are just a few questions you need to consider before digging.
