The Little Garden Pond

The Little Garden Pond

We do have a little garden pond.
It’s quite small, but the sound of a water feature in a garden can make a big impact.
So soothing during quiet evenings around the fire pit.
We would like to make changes to it this year, as we have learned more about maintaining a pond.
One of the biggest challenges is keeping the ducks out of it!
Last year I relinquished it to the baby ducklings, but this year I plan to impose the “no ducks allowed” rule.

  1. That sounds wonderfully relaxing, minus the ducks, of course! I plan to dig into a rainwater garden this year. That’s my summer project.

    1. After our long and never ending Winter this year….the garden will be even more of a retreat than it usually is!!!
      A rainwater garden sounds like such a fun project for the Summer!

  2. Beautiful as it is. I help plan the annual Garden Walk for the Waseca Garden Club – can hardly wait to see your magnificent gardens!

  3. We looked at a home once that had a water feature in their front yard which seemed decadent because they’d not be enjoying it much there. But it sure made a big impact in their landscaping. I think in an urban yard they’re also a nice way to mask noise from the street. Do you find it hard to keep the water clear? I love the mauve carpet of flowers too. Is that Arctic Phlox?

  4. I am sure that your ducks are going to really miss access to this lovely part of their life. What an awesome water feature!

    1. Yes, I’m not sure how I’m going to manage it yet?
      As for now they are still cooped up–ha!
      We are thinking of fencing them in a run area with a kiddie pool….last year they used the dog’s pool just as much as the dogs…silly petting zoo!
