The addition of aquatic plants or water plants to your pond have many benefits and are important part of the ecosystem. Aquatic plants are Mother Nature’s true filters. Plants are great for adding character to a pond by providing color and texture, but from a filtration perspective, they’re second to none. Thriving from the excess nutrients in pond and depriving algae of its food source, the aquatic plants in a water garden, given proper coverage, are critical for the overall health of the ecosystem.

Aquatic pond plants aren’t just used in the water garden to provide beauty and naturalization. They also serve the very important function of helping to balance the ecosystem. Their valuable biological filtration helps remove nitrogen, ammonia, nitrates, and other minerals that algae would otherwise feed on. In addition, the plants provide food, shade, and protection for the fish and wildlife that live in and around the pond.

Typically, they are divide into four groups: water lilies, marginals, floating plants, and submerged plants. Contact us today to schedule your design and installation of new aquatic plants for your pond or water feature.
