It so happened that for most people, proper rest means a more or less close contact with water, because water for us has been a necessary condition for life itself and even for simply comfortable existence since ancient times. And therefore, an artificial pond in the country or in the garden near the house is becoming more and more common in the modern world. After all, how nice it is to come home from work or come a few days to the country to get the opportunity to complete relaxation. Continue reading
Your dream is to have a place to swim in your plot, but the pool doesn’t fit well with the concept of a natural garden? This is not a problem, because this is exactly what the swimming pond was invented for.
Building swimming ponds is a responsible business, but the result will not disappoint you.
First you need to determine the place, and the bigger it is, the better, because if there is enough space, you can take a place under the zone for swimming and regeneration. The regeneration zone is the area around the pond where plants will grow and with the help of which the swimming pond water will be cleaned.
If there is not enough space for the required regeneration zone, then in this case it will be necessary to use additional equipment for water purification or take out the regeneration zone, but at some distance from the navigation zone. An autonomous regeneration pond corresponds to the general landscape design and has an area of two to three times less than a swimming pond. This artificial reservoir is decorated under a natural one, but it has a drain from the swimming pond, through which water flows from there, passing through the purification system here, and then again entering the swimming area with the help of pumps.

We make the coastline: pick up a few dozen stones of the same size and shape and lay them along the edge of the reservoir, like a string of beads … Or, let’s say, uniformly plant it on all sides with plants of the same type or at least one height …
Another mistake that kills any hint of naturalness.
The sides, the sides again … almost half of our dacha reservoirs are somehow surrounded by the sides. If they are not poured out of the ground, they are certainly laid out of stones. Well, or at least formed from plants. We are like “locking” the water like a dangerous beast. No need to lock her up, she won’t run away! Make the coastline free and open! Continue reading
