What is required to create a mobile mini-reservoir? Just the right container for you, clean water and the right plants. That’s all! Simply, the costs are minimal, and you can decorate with such a pond a terrace, a recreation area, and just a porch of a house.
As for the choice of plants for a tiny pond, too large, deep-sea ones, of course, will not work. You can focus on such unpretentious aquatic plants as vodokras (aka toad), azole, water nut, hydrokleis, pemphigus, some types of water lilies.
Much, of course, depends on the capacity you choose for your mobile pond. These tubs may look too rustic, but you can always paint them in different bright colors, highlighting them against the greenery.
Water lilies and a brooding frog on a stone … Simple, but very beautiful. In general, you can choose a variety of figurines, vases, even ordinary pots with indoor plants for the decor of a mini-pond. In such a composition, you can embody any fantasy..
To imitate a real pond, a specially purchased container or just an old basin, you can dug into the ground and lay out the area around with rubble, gravel, pebbles, decorative mulch.
Special containers for mini-ponds on the site may differ in size and shape. If the reservoir, which, if desired, can be moved to another place in the garden or removed for the winter, is large enough, it is quite possible to even launch fish.
Composing a composition of several mini-ponds with aquatic plants is also not difficult. By the way, such aquatic plants as hornwort, urut, elodea, pond are oxygen generators, they prevent water pollution by absorbing carbon dioxide. But such useful plants may not look very attractive..
Even in a tiny pond, you can organize a small waterfall using containers at different levels and a water supply system. We agree that mini-ponds have very few practical functions, they are just attractive. The only thing is that it can be a little cooler near the reservoir on a hot day..
At the bottom of the mini-reservoir, you can lay out stones, and arrange a high flower garden around. It is not necessary to use special plants for such a flower bed, the most common marigolds, pansies and petunias are suitable.
Finally – the original “reservoir” without water at all. It will look good next to the playground, and it will definitely attract the attention of guests. The owners are clearly distinguished by their rich imagination and are ready to work with their own hands. Note that even the stones holding the film that simulate the water surface have been painted blue for completeness..
