Water Gardening

Water is the sustainer of life. In the harsh desert climates, a water garden serves to draw wildlife and create a point of serenity. It can take many forms, from a simple fountain made from a large pot, to a pondless waterfall recirculating along a ridge, to a koi pond where the water is fed over a waterfall and along a stream to feed the pond. 

If you want to create a water feature, we can build it for you, or advise you so you do it yourself.  A water feature is a mini-ecosystem and includes fish, plants and beneficial bacteria. We carry a good selection of water lilies, bog plants and water lettuce. Since many of these plants are dormant in the winter, they're usually available in late March to April. We also carry the beneficial bacteria and other products necessary to maintain the ecosystem.
