If you create a pond in the garden, you must also pay attention to the correct planting. It depends on both the pond size, as well as on the depth.
Plants enrich the water with plenty of oxygen
The water should not be overloaded with plants, especially not if you have fish. On the other hand, plants ensure that the water is enriched with plenty of oxygen and so the formation of algae is suppressed. At the pond depth, it should be noted that not every plant is suitable for each pond. For example, water lilies need at least a water depth of 40 centimeters, the more, the better. The deep water zone then begins at 40 centimeters. There are water lilies, frog bite and sea teapot ideally suited.
Shallow water zone, swamp zone and wet zone
In the shallow water zone, which is between 10 and 40 centimeters, flower rushes and hedgehogs feel well. Also the marsh iris and the pine fronds have a great place there. Up to a depth of 10 centimeters, the marsh zone can be found. The marsh marigolds, the marsh iris and the blood-pasture pond thrive there. Attention: Around the pond and within the pond liner, the wet zone joins. Above all, plants such as the Siberian iris and meadowsweet are ideal.
