Garden Ponds

LANDSCAPING IDEAS AND USES FOR GARDEN PONDS

There are many advantages to adding a garden pond to your landscape, apart from the obvious fact that they can be visually attractive. They can also help to cool down patio and courtyard areas; provide a place to raise fish or grow interesting aquatic plants such as water lilies; when incorporated with a waterfall or fountain a garden pond creates a soothing place for relaxation; and if you have a pet it also provides a good spot to have a drink.
