A pond can be a valuable addition to any garden, especially when you want to add some more natural elements and wildlife.
After all, ponds are not just decorative: they can help maintain the health of your plants and save up on your water bill.
Maintaining your plants’ health is the general benefit of ponds in your garden, and the following is an outline of how it does that:
- Natural filters for your garden’s soil: The water in the pond will help filter out sediment, chemicals, and fertilizer salts that may be affecting the ground beneath it. This means that the nutrients and minerals in the soil can be better utilized by plants growing there, which helps to keep them healthy.
- Reduce stress on plants from insects such as aphids and caterpillars: These insects harm plants, but they generally like water plants more than dry land varieties because they’re easier to reach. Therefore, a pond that provides water for the insects will keep them away from your dryland plants.
- Natural filters for ponds (see what we did there?): Ponds can filter out sediments and other harmful chemicals from the water before reaching your fish tank or garden. This is a much better option than using chemical filters in your home, as it will help to protect both your fish and the environment.
- Reduce the use of fertilizers: Because of how ponds cleanse soils, they can offer essential nutrients and minerals back to surrounding plants, especially with little rain or if your home’s soil has been damaged by pollution.
