Determine where to put the pond. Once you have considered everything, such as the sun, soil, and things in the area such as trees or rocks, you need to stake out the territory to know where to dig and get an idea of what size to be.

After you have staked the area out, you can start digging. Usually, anywhere from three to five feet down will be sufficient for most ponds. If one chooses a liner, check so there is no chance that a leak will happen. Next, you will want to attach the pump to the water tank you will use. Most of these come with a hole for this to be inserted. Lay the pump hose along the bottom of the pond to start the water placing, and you can place stones around the house to hold it in place. After you have secured the pump and hose and the water is flowing nicely, add the water plants.

Choose plants that grow well in a very moist environment. Have a plan on where these will be placed. Talk with someone at your local nursery to see what works in your climate area and your particular landscape. Once you have planted what you desire and everything looks good, turn your water on and let your pond become a fantastic focal point in your landscape. Check on its functioning every few days and ensure the water stays nice and clean. Water gardens are a place to relax and enjoy your natural area with the lovely sound of running water right next to you. Water ponds and water features can make an area relaxing and enjoyable.

Cardinal Flower - TN Nursery

Cardinal Flower

The Red Cardinal Flower has vibrant red blooms and tall, erect stalks. It adds color and elegance to gardens, parks, and various outdoor spaces. Beyond its aesthetic appeal, it offers several advantages, making it a popular choice for landscapers and gardeners. The scarlet-hued Lobelia cardinalis is a perennial in the bellflower family. Its tall, nectar-filled bloom spikes attract hummingbirds and create a beautiful display in your garden. The plant's common name refers to the red robes a Roman Catholic cardinal wears.     Natural Habitat Of The Cardinal Flower Lobelia is native to the North and South American continents and blooms from July through September. This moisture-loving plant grows on stream banks and in low woods, marshes, and meadows across the United States. If you want to create a handsome show in your garden, Lobelia will surely delight. The plant's fiery spires yield brilliant red blooms that open gradually from the bottom to the top of their racemes. Each long, narrow, tube-shaped blossom has two flat upper petals and three lower petals at the tips. The delicate plant crown leafy 2’-4' stems, covered with shiny, lance-shaped, bright green leaves that sometimes have a bronze or reddish tint. The leaves alternate as they climb the stems, enhancing the blooms to create a lively riot of color. Cardinal Flower is a favorite of gardeners who love adding bold splashes of crimson. This plant is perfect for shady woodland plots, wet meadow plantings, water gardens, pollinator gardens, and rain gardens. Its long stems can add height to borders and create depth when placed in the back sections of your landscape. The blossoms are most spectacular from midsummer into fall and make excellent cut blooms. Ecology Of The Cardinal Flower Some people say Lobelia will bring hummingbirds in from the sky. The plant's blooming period coincides with the late-summer migration of ruby-throated hummingbirds traveling south to Mexico. The birds pollinate the plant by dipping their beaks into the plants' long, red tubes. The blossoms are also beautiful to swallowtail butterflies and bees, making them a wonderful centerpiece in a pollinator garden.
