Square Ponds - Where to Site and What Pond Liner
Wednesday, April 25, 2012
The most obvious situation in which a square pond is suited is the central point of a traditional style flower garden surrounded by a tiled or brick edging and then by flower beds filled with roses, perennials or herbs.
The other possibility for a square pond is to install it beside a patio as an eye-catching feature with a wide variety of decorative plants around it. This type of pond is designed to be viewed from close-up and any imperfections are likely to be noticed.
The third possible position for a square pond is at the far end of a grass path, with distinctly shaped aquatic plants in it.
A square pond needs to be seen from a fairly close distance otherwise they look narrower than they are and take on a rectangular shape. Place a few tall accent plants behind the pond and attractive foliage plants to hang over the side. Also consider adding evergreens with a rounded growth to contrast with the square shape of the pond as well as delicate foliage plants to soften the outlines.
When planting in and around a square shaped pond, consider what it will look like in all seasons particularly winter. Planting evergreens will ensure that the pond will not lose its allure even during the middle of winter.
Because a square pond
is best seen from close-up, any imperfections in its construction would be noticed. To avoid this, install a tailored-to-fit or box-welded rubber pond liner
, which will be free of creases and folds. This type of box-welded pond liner
is fabricated from Butyl or Epalyn rubber, which are high quality materials displaying good UV and tear resistant properties.
