The greatest waterfalls of the Eastern Hemisphere

This is the greatest waterfalls of the Eastern Hemisphere. Continue reading

The coastline of the reservoir.

 

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

Making the bottom of the reservoir

 

The first stage in the construction of any decorative pond – marking outlines and digging the pit. Of course, if we plan a reservoir in a landscape style, it is desirable that its outlines be wrong, unconstrained. It is best to define the boundaries in advance.
And now we take a shovel and dig a pit with steep walls, uniform over the entire area.
This is the first and very important mistake of many. The final result at best will resemble a bath or a pool, but not a natural pond. Remember the natural reservoirs (after all, we take them as a sample): it is very rare to find a lake in nature with sheer cliffs on all sides (except for mountain lakes, but they also require an appropriate environment). As a rule, in natural water bodies with stagnant water, the depth increases gradually from shallow water. Continue reading
