It’s possible to convert new or existing pond in a convenient place of habitation of representatives of living nature, using a few simple design elements.
The materials bordering the pond, is essential to attracting animals and birds. They should be natural and provide a safe route to the pond and into it. Soft slope from the gravel or rocky mound perfectly perform these functions, so they need to do at least on one side of the pond to allow free passage of animals and birds for shallow, where they could drink and bathe. Herbal areas, padded to the edge of the water look good, but can make the water cloudy. Do not use masonry — tiles and stones become too hot, in the summer they could cross the amphibians. Do not place the pond close to your patio or home, because the water — place feeding of many insects, including mosquitoes. Continue reading
The task of pond farms is having to establish their own broodstock herbivorous fish (grass carp and silver carps), which will allow fish farmers to get in the feeding ponds of a productive polyculture, i.e. fish communities from different fish species, different kind of power. It will ensure rational use of the forage reserve of ponds. The widespread cultivation of common carp with phytophagous fishes under intensive keeping of fish-breeding process (double feeding of fishes, optimum planting densities, etc.) in conditions of Chu valley can ensure the productivity of fattening ponds in the range of 20 — 25 kg/ha.
The culture of pond fish culture requires the creation of ponds favourable conditions for fish life. First of all, in the ponds the water should be clean with good gas mode and the box bottom is moderately overgrown with vegetation and heavily silted. Unacceptable clogging of ponds to target small fish (Amur chebachok, eleotris, loaches, etc.), eating food, competing with farmed fish. In the Chui valley there are a lot of inconvenient land. which can usefully be used for the construction of state and collective farm ponds. The development of collective and state farms pond farming is a critical challenge in scaling up fish farming operations in the country. Continue reading
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. And Soviet landscape architects created our urban gardens and parks within the framework of these ideas and principles. But when the Soviet era in the 90 years in the past, the guiding principle when creating became a slogan, that would not be worse than. (on the picture in the magazine, the neighbors, or seen somewhere or live on the Internet). And “water” in the garden in the post-Soviet space has become a marker or a certain status of the owner of the garden, or character supposedly fulfilling the dreams of a happy life. Continue reading
