A little view of my pond: fisches, frogs, water snakes, toads, and all other as dragonflies with their aquatic larvas, Dytiscos and so on.
The presence of a pond in your garden completes the natural balance of ecosystem: water is important above all in this hot and dry summer for every kind of insects and mammals. Bees and hedgehogs, usefull for our garden, find here fresh water for survive.
Moreover thanks to aquatic plants it becomes a beautiful corner of garden by its flowers as water lilies and iris (Iris pseudacorus, Iris sibirica) . Don’t forget to put oxygen plant productors (Elodea, Ceratophyllum demersum) inside so to have always trasparent and clean water.
