Construction and repair of ponds
The depth of the pond determines the slope of the underwater Bank. Is the slope less than 30° . but quite often it is necessary to construct more ponds with steep underwater banks or shores of different slope. In such cases, you should take into account that coastal soil may gradually sciatica or to slip away under the foil lining the bed of the pond. To prevent this, granular soil reinforced and fixed with clay or concrete.
How to populate ponds
Finally, another way of filling the pond – at the expense of natural water resources: stormwater and melt water, nearby water bodies and springs.
Types of garden lighting
There are two main types of garden lighting . flood (projector) and directed a narrow beam (spot). The difference between them lies not in the power of the light beam, and light distribution. And in that and in other case the light can be bright or subdued. When searchlight outdoor lighting light spreads widely, gradually ebbing at the edges of the lit area. In the second case, the beam illuminates a relatively small area with sharply defined borders. At a point, and in some cases and under floodlight outdoor lighting light can be directed from below, above or behind.
Garden spot lighting
This outdoor lighting is used to highlight the directional beam of a single plant, a group rasteniya any decorative element in the garden. This effect is achieved due to the special lamp, cartridge or special lampshade allowing to direct the light cone. For bright garden spot light should use a lamp with a capacity of 100-120 watts, powered from the mains.
In this garden the illumination light source set behind a tree, archway or other object. As a result, the object that I want to emphasize, acts as a sharp silhouette on the illuminated background. To achieve the desired effect hard – costs just shift the bulb and the light will hit the eye.
Flood outdoor lighting
Flood, or General outdoor lighting used to illuminate the whole plot and not individual plant or decorative elements. Low-voltage network is mainly used for decorative purposes and not for normal lighting system. Most powerful are halogen lamps.
Lighting from below
When illuminated from below the lamp set at ground level, directing light upward at a group of plants or any decorative element. Try to mask the lamp. Usually when illuminated from below the distance from the light source to the illuminated object must be equal to the height of the last. For greater effect, you can set the light source half the distance.
