The pond at the dacha with his own hands
Many owners of a suburban area, making a list of the desired one of the first to include a pond or other body of water – a fountain or a stream. A few words about “water” in the garden. This tradition came to the Europeans from the East. From the Middle East – regular shape swimming pools, fountains and cascades. Far from a pond of arbitrary shape, streams and waterfalls, and the principle of “reflect world.” Middle East the ideas and principles used in classical garden styles, and far Eastern – in an infinity of styles.
