From a greening perspective, there are two primary types of aquatic gardens: perennial and annual.
Permanent aquatic gardens can grow up to a metre in height and can be planted in a garden or on the riverbank.
Annual aquatic gardens usually require more space and can grow to over a metre.
The types of plants you plant will depend on what you want to grow.
You can choose an annual plant for the winter and then plant a perennial plant during the summer, for example.
In the winter, if you want a plant that grows in a shallow pot or one that grows into a shallow pond, consider planting in a deeper pond to prevent it from drying out and being too wet in the summer.
When it comes to choosing plants for your aquatic garden, it is important to consider the size and maturity of your plants and the type of soil you want.
In a deep pond, a small pond plant that can grow in shallow pots is probably best, since it will not dry out and will help maintain the water quality.
In an area with shallow soils, a larger pond plant might be best.
In addition to water quality, you will also want to consider what type of water quality your plants require.
For example, if your plant requires a very low pH (a pH that is below 5.5), then you will want to plant in a low-pH water conditioner.
If your plant needs a high pH, then you might choose a pH-sensitive water conditioners such as a pHK, pH-max or pH-moderator.
The pH-limiters are available at garden centres and are available for purchase from garden centres.
For the most part, pH meters are available in all garden centres that carry them.
For an example of a pH meter, check out the page about pH meters in the Living Waters site.
When deciding on your aquatic gardens to grow, be sure to consider which types of water are suitable for your plants.
Some aquatic gardens have a water-holding capacity (the amount of water that you can get out of the water before it gets too saturated) of less than 100 liters per metre.
If you need a higher capacity, you might want to choose plants that can support a more complex aquatic ecosystem.
For a list of suitable plants, check the Living Water page.
Another factor that you should consider is whether you want your aquatic plants to grow in a sheltered or exposed location.
In sheltered areas, the water level is lower, which means the plants can hold more water.
If a water source is located nearby, then it will have a greater impact on the plants and therefore may have a larger effect on the amount of growth that your plants will see.
If exposed, the plants will have an area of more water, which will result in slower growth.
In other words, you may need to plant plants in areas where there is less water.
In some cases, water availability may also be a consideration when choosing plants to plant.
You will want a lot of plants to be available for water, so plants that are large and can easily be moved can be more suitable than smaller plants that need more space to grow and will need to be moved.
