What are the reservoirs.

According to the design features, the water bodies are divided into:
• on small and ultra-small reservoirs with a finished lining of the bottom and sides, made in the factory (this is usually a film or a finished bath). Such reservoirs essentially belong to the basins, as they are completely isolated from the natural environment and have an artificial filling. A feature of their use in conditions of central Russia, in the presence of clay and loamy soils with a high water level in the spring, is the need for drainage of the area of ​​such a reservoir. If this rule is not observed, cases of such reservoirs “floating up” above the surface of the earth are not isolated, which immediately violates the aesthetic qualities of the territory of the object; 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).
