All you need to create a stream is a gentle slope and access to electricity for a pump to circulate the water, stormwater can be captured from your roof and stored in a tank to feed a fountain or top up the stream. Consider the following factors
Water Features usually a fall of about 30cm in 3m is enough for a stream to run.
- Water loss:
Water loss from water features can be minimized by using a good quality pond liner to line both the pond and stream. Streamside planting to provide shade can also help minimize water loss through evaporation.
Rocks and stones linin g a stream, pool or placed in a water feature can help give a natural look. Rocks around a pond also look great.
Water flow is important in all water features, so a quality pump and filtration set up is essential. Pump suppliers can recommend an appropriate pump for the required water flow.
It is essential to make provision for overflow from any water feature. Connect you pond to an overflow pit or a stormwater drain (consult your local council for regulations)
No water garden is complete without plants.
Astilbe, Dicentra, Lobelia, Aquilegia, Ferns, Hostas, Rhododendrons, Rodgersia, Water lilies all do well in damp conditions.
INSTALLING A POND
Make sure that when you build a pond that you make plant shelves. Most water plants stay in pots place d on a pond shelf. A flat pond shelf deep enough for a medium to large pot to sit below water level is best. Pond liner should always be used, not black plastic. Rock, stone or paver to the waters edge add a great finnish. Pond pumps to circulate water are essential. Ponds need to be at least 600cm deep to allow for the water to stay cool and deep enough for water plants and fish. Consult you local council for regulations.
