Arrangement of the pond on the site | –

How nice to spend hot summer days away from the city, in a summer cottage where the noise of the trees replaces the noise of cars, and instead of multi -storey buildings you are surrounded by living nature. It is even better if the summer cottage is located next to the river or lake, where you can enjoy the noise of water and a colorful landscape. If there are no ponds nearby, you can create it yourself by arranging a small reservoir on your summer cottage area.

When installing a pond, you must first choose a well -lit place, preferably away from buildings. In addition, when creating a pond, it is important to maintain the correct proportions, which will help maintain its biobalance. To do this, it is enough to observe a few simple rules. Firstly, the surface of the pond should be at least 3-4 m². Secondly, the depth of the pond should not be less than 0.5 meters. Also, when arranging a pond, you need to take into account the level of groundwater.

Before proceeding with the arrangement of the pond, you should decide from which material you will build it. You may need materials such as sand, cement, brick, gravel, natural stone, concrete blocks, film.

Most often, the pond is equipped from the film. It can be polyethylene, polyvinyl chloride (PVC) or Butilkuchek. You can buy such a film in building materials stores or ordering in an online store. In addition, there are specialized stores that sell all the necessary materials and equipment for your pond. So, the PVC film for the GEO-Membrana pond is sold in rolls of various widths-from 2 to 10 m, that is, you can choose a piece of film of the required size for your pond. As a rule, the life of such a film is an average of 10-15 years. The thickness of the film is different, and therefore, the deeper your reservoir, the denser the film should be for it.

In addition, you can equip a pond of plastic, which is already sold in finished form or use your old bathroom.

An important stage in the arrangement of the pond is its landscaping. In order to turn a reservoir into a real living corner, various plants can be used: deep -sea or coastal, fixed and free -saved. Before planting plants in a reservoir, it is necessary to let the water settle from 7 to 10 days. This will allow all harmful volatile compounds to evaporate, and water will acquire the ambient temperature. And only after you can populate fish in the pond.
