Need to add a little spice to your pond

Ponds are becoming increasingly popular these days. Ponds make a serene and tranquil place in anyone’s backyard. There are ponds that are dug into the ground, pond kits, deck ponds, planter ponds so many ponds can be designed with just a little imagination in no time.

Ponds give off a very relaxing atmosphere as you can enjoy the new life that they bring, from planting butterfly bushes around your pond and watching the butterflies chase each other around to watching the KOI fish chase after each other to watch the frogs jump around and swim around onto the lily pads. Ponds are not just about the water anymore but also the new life that they bring and the shelter that they provide to the animals.

Lily pads protect new tadpoles as the frogs spawn their eggs underneath, the lily pads provide protection away from other predators. Umbrella plants and butterfly bushes all look great but also provide a way for insects of all walks of life to enjoy time playing and lying to take a daily nap. Ponds don’t just provide water, but also adds value to your home and allows you to enjoy wildlife at its best.

Water lilies

Water lilies grow in no time with the right amount of shade and sun and can provide an array of colors ranging from red, orange, yellow and purple. Water lilies can thrive with or without fish and look great in a water pot, water garden or pond. Another great pond plant is the Spatterdock, this plant can thrive in just a small shallow pan and can easily be transplanted and moved or divided as it grows.

With pond plants, the fish provide more oxygen to the plants and the plants also return the favor by providing oxygen for the fish, but all in all pond plants prevent algae from appearing and makes a lovely attraction to any home.
