Since the introduction of fiberglass pools, tremendous interest has been shown in medium-sized garden pools.
Before constructing any pool careful thought should be given to the sitting. To create a successful bog garden or water garden, it must be situated right out in the open, in full sun. Although not essential, it is advantageous to give protection from the north, if possible, as this will extend the flowering period both in autumn and spring. A belt of trees, a hedge or buildings on the north are all suitable. Overhanging trees are a disadvantage, both because of the amount of shade they cast and on account of their leaves, which will undoubtedly fall, in the water during the autumn. Weeping trees, although aesthetically pleasing in their early stages can mar a pool in a few years, as without sunlight you will get leaves on aquatic plants, but no flowers.
Give consideration also to the water supply, whether this is natural or artificial. Generally speaking, large quantities of water are not required after the initial filling. Even in a discolored pond you should not continuously run in fresh water or make frequent changes, as this tends only to keep the water murky. Provided the pool can be reached with a garden hose a normal domestic supply is quite adequate. Drainage should be considered but is not very important, provided there is lower ground nearby or a drain on a lower level, into which Water can be siphoned or baled during emptying.
Paint the pools in dark or natural colors, and try for a general natural effect. The edges may either be disguised with plants, paving or stones, which should slightly overhang the water. Or you may cover the edges with Myriophyllum proserpinaco ides, a very rampant grower. As it is
