The right place for your pond takes some thought; the biological balance of the water is significantly influenced by the choice of location. A semi-shade area with few trees is ideally suited, so that contamination due to leaves and pine needles is kept to a minimum. 4-6 hours of sunlight daily ensure a balanced climate. To ensure that water and flushed out nutrients do not accumulate, do not install the pond at the lowest point of the garden landscape. And finally the best tip of all: In order to optimally enjoy your pond, including flora and fauna, you should have an unobstructed view into the pond from your favourite place.
