NGA Articles: Making a Water Garden

Making a Water Garden (cont)

By: National Gardening Association Editors

Tips

Add two bunches of submerged plants, one floating plant, and one or two marsh plants per square yard of water surface to keep algae in check. Plants should cover 60 to 70 percent of the surface.

Remove debris regularly, and replace water lost to evaporation, but don't change any water. Within a few weeks, the water should clear.
