WATERFEATURES...WHAT'S NEW...

(For Ruth...Rye, Sussex)...and anyone else that's interested in: AQUATIC and BOG GARDEN PLANTING...WE ALSO VERY GOOD AT THE VERY SPECIALISED SUBJECT OF PLANTING MARGINALS and MOISTURE LOVING PLANTS...

PLANTING INSPIRATION...Part 1


Here's a mixture of Bog and Aquatics...with our experience of creating Water Gardens, we know exactly how to create the environments that these plants need.

Too wet and they die, too dry and they die. What you see here is actually a stream that feeds into a large pond next. In the digging and building process we create areas that are permanently very wet for aquatics and moist for the bog plants.

But the trick is build it in such a way that the stream provides the water for the bog plants too, but again, too wet and they die!

Hence what looks like one type is growing with another they are actually growing in separate areas, but all of the areas are fed by the stream...





And this is the pond that the stream feeds into...the planting areas in our ponds are dug out and built in the same way as the streams.

Aquatics are planted within rock bays which captures them and therefore stops them from spreading into other areas. We never plant into baskets we always plant straight into soil, clay or gravel as we hate to see plastic baskets in what is meant to look natural!

Next...as "every picture tells a story" you will find dozens of before and after inspirational pictures and suitably inspired we hope that you will give us a call...
