A step-by-step guide to creating a water garden
Sketch your layout.
Choose the right place.
Ensure the place is levelled.
You will need a power source nearby.
Place your pre-planted pots or baskets.
Use blocks to create different levels.
Three different levels will add more interest.
Fill the gaps between the planters.
Fill all the way till the brim of the tallest planter.
Use pea gravel, baby jelly or coarse sand.
Place a small tile at the rear of the garden or in between the planters.
Use the tile as the surface to place the filter.
Start layering pebbles of a light colour over the filler.
Ensure the spout of the filter is not obstructed.
Cover the visible rim of planters.
Place larger rocks to add interest.
It is in these crevices that fish can hide or rest.
Use aquarium quality silicon glue to bind these rocks.
Add water from the side or over a rock.
Ensure not to disturb the soil.
Make sure all electrical connections are dry.
