Water lakes are small lakes that can also be found in your own garden. They are very characteristic because, especially if well lit, they become a point where to focus attention. Those who want to have one in their garden, however, will have to prevent the disturbance of unpleasant insects such as mosquitoes, which are particularly attracted to stagnant water. By not placing it too close to the dining area and using plants and mosquito repellent methods, this problem can be avoided. The pond becomes the best place, where you can also grow aquatic plants and therefore perhaps give your garden the imprint of a water garden. To choose the model that could best fit into your garden, you can go to a specialized shop or take a trip to the internet.


pondsThe pond for the garden, in addition to being able to buy it, can also be built personally, obviously you must still have a minimum of familiarity and ability, and above all some free time. It is first necessary to define the place where to insert the lake and avoid spaces where pipes pass and then carry out the excavation. The pond has its own weight so it is always necessary to check from the project that the chosen area is suitable. The bottom can be covered with a PVC sheet, which can also be purchased at DIY stores. Inside the pond, leaving a border you will also have the possibility of inserting aquatic plants. The excavation will be of the shape and size that you want to give to the pond and the excess parts must be filled with mortar. On the side, a small drainage channel is appropriate when heavy rains occur, the drain must be conveyed into a gutter. The pond is not only an aesthetic element of the garden, but also becomes a small universe in which there are plants and fish. In order for the right balance to be created and the latter to find their natural habitat, it is important to install a recirculating pump for filtering the water. This serves to oxygenate the water and ensure that plants and fish can have a longer survival. The pond is a very interesting work that, even if it may seem difficult in the realization, following the right indications and choosing the most suitable materials, it will certainly be a great satisfaction to present to your friends.

The garden pond can also be purchased at a specialized shop, these are ready-to-use models that will only have to be placed inside the excavation. While in the ‘artisanal’ pond, the bottom was covered, in this case it is a tank that is laid down and fixed. Once filled with water, the pump must be started which also in this case has the task of filtering the water. Inside the tank there are steps that allow you to place the aquatic plants. The pond can then be completed with fish. The drain here serves to drain excess water that accumulates during heavy rains. The tub is made to be quite durable and has an unlimited lifespan. It can have different sizes, although the best-selling models are those with rather small dimensions.

The cost of a garden water pond varies primarily based on the choice of buying it at a store or making it yourself. The cost of the excavation is proportional to the size of the excavation and the same applies to the pond purchased from a specialized store. The size and quality of the pump can affect the cost, and possibly this can also be purchased separately. Even if purchased from a shop, the pond must still be installed personally and all the instructions must also be carefully followed so that it is fully functional. The shop we contacted for the purchase will also provide any spare parts and will also be able to give useful information on its assembly.

The water pond can be purchased at an outdoor shop or at a garden center, the PVC sheet, to make the bottom waterproof, when it is made by itself, is generally sold at all points of sale for the do-it-yourself.

Having said that, the first aspect worth dwelling on refers to the choice between artificial and natural lakes, with the latter, inevitably, much more beautiful to look at than the former. Other aspects to be strongly taken into consideration refer to the possibility of focusing on marginal elements, as in the case of fountains and waterfalls.
