Hi this is Yolanda Vanveen and in this segment I am going to talk about how to build a water garden. Now water gardens come in every shape and size imaginable. There are so many different types of water gardens that you can create. The easiest way to create a water garden is just to create one very easily. The easiest way to create a water garden is to just buy a form and it is just like a swimming pool form, it is just plastic that you put down into the bottom and into the top you have a plastic lining and then you just put rocks around it and then a pump inside and fill it with water and you will find that the water will just come through. There is a hose that goes to the end and it pumps the water into the top and it comes back down. You can use cement blocks to block it in and you can just add all types of perennials and trees and shrubs and bulbs whatever looks good to you. You can always add some wood to make it a little more natural but it is very simple to create a water garden. So your water garden is a reflection of yourself. So you can add any type of plants that you would like and it is very simple by just using a form with a pump and some rocks you can create your own water garden very easily.
