We have plants that love water

Water gardens can be any size you want. For your deck or small space, try making a water garden in a container. Add a pump and fountain to circulate the water which will discourage mosquitoes and add delightful sound. You will quickly find that your water garden is indeed a little ecosystem attracting frogs and dragonflies. We invite you to visit our water garden and its inhabitants. We have a good variety of water-loving plants for your water garden. We have 3 types of easy plants for your water garden.
  1. Floating Plants
    • Water Hyacinth
    • Water Lettuce

    • Society Garlic
    • Variegated Water Celery

  3. Water Lilies need to be between 12 and 25 inches below the water's surface and have white, pink, or yellow flowers.

Got algae and want to "clear things up"?

Plants help keep algae at bay by creating shade and competing for the same minerals that algae need. You should strive for about 60% of your ponds surface to be covered by foliage. Our knowledgeable staff is here to answer those hard questions.
