Frequently asked questions about mini ponds
How big and deep should a mini pond be?
A mini pond does not have to be large, the ideal size for a mini pond is 1 square meter. The pond should be made in a container with a depth between 25 and 50 centimeters.
Supplies for a mini pond
It doesn't take much to set up a mini pond beautifully, but it is helpful to know what products you need. Of course, you need a container in which to create the mini pond. You also need a pond basket, clay, soil, plant food and water plants. It is most convenient to buy this in a ready-made mini pond set.
Maintenance of the mini pond
A mini pond, because it is only a small water source, requires little maintenance and care. However, it is important to keep an eye on the water level during the warm summer months. This is because the heat can cause this water level to drop, but the aquatic plants obviously need water. When you see that the water level in your mini pond has dropped, add water to the container so that your own mini pond can continue to be full of blooms!
