The Personal Touch Around Your Pond
Here’s where your creative instincts kick in around your pond. This is where you make your pond your own. Basically, it’s landscaping, but with a pond it can really become an artistic endeavor.
Sandstone, bricks, slate, field stone, crushed bricks, stream pebbles, mulch, you name it. Let your imagination be your guide. And that’s just the beginning.
Once you get a base down then you can start thinking about how you want to work in flowers, and plants. You can integrate annual flowerbeds with perennial beds. That way you can add something different each year for variety and still have flowers that come up year after year.
In the perennial beds for example you could plant some early spring blooms like daffodils, and then in the same bed plant mid summer and fall bloomers to keep the color going. Of course there are so many different varieties of annual flowers, you’ll never run out of ideas for your annual beds.
Other Ideas For Around Your Pond
Maybe you like the little ceramic figures that can be set in among the plants. The garden centers have loads of that kind of stuff. You can even get a ceramic toad or two if you like, but I’ll guarantee you that you will have plenty of real toads around your pond.
As for lights, the garden centers and places like Lowes and Home Depot have great selections of low voltage landscaping yard lights. Better yet, try some solar lights, these make a great accent around your pond at night.
The ideas are pretty much unlimited when comes to what you want to do around your pond. It’s something that will put the stamp on it that it’s all yours. The great thing is, you can change things up every year, and make it just the way you want it.
