Water plants are key ingredients to achieve an ecological balance in your pond.
There are 4 basic groups and each pond should have some of each, resulting in coverage of two thirds of the pond surface with plants in order to naturally create a healthy and clear pond.
We all can appreciate the beauty of a flower, but we all love a fragrant bloom or plant. The scent of a blossom or plant is a natural method to improve mood and result in relaxation.
So why not plan your garden, or even a patio pot or hanging basket to include scented plants that we can appreciate while we enjoy our long awaited Spring and Summer outdoors.

Bees are one of the most important pollinators in the world. In addition to providing us with honey and beeswax, three quarters of the world's food sources require pollinators.
Pollination also occurs with activity from butterflies, hummingbirds and other insects, birds and animals.
Hummingbirds are a welcome sight for most gardeners and bird lovers alike. It's hard not to be mesmerized by their often iridescent color, aerial acrobatics and ability to hover in midair while drinking nectar from feeders or flowers.
A yard with flowering shrubs, vines and dwarf trees provide the hummingbirds with shelter, security, shade and food sources. Moving water or misters also attract these delightful birds. These garden plantings will provide a natural Hummingbird habitat that will attract them to your yard year after year.
