Garden Decor: Aquascaping for Beauty and Purpose
Envision a lovely stream flowing over rocks...... around bends in the landscape...... with little minnows frolicking in glittering pools...... with lush dogwoods leaning down the bank to take a look....and cattails perky and tall stretching for the sky.... but wait... is this healthy eco-scaping?
How we maintain plants in the landscape has a dramatic impact on the water quality and behavior in an entire watershed. (Just for grins...do you know where your watershed is tonight?)
Aquascaping helps to reduce the impact our activities have on lakes, streams and the ocean.
Activities on and around lakes have a great impact on the water quality, habitat value, and productivity of those lakes. By removing nuisance plants and replacing them with beneficial natives, you can help maintain good water quality and prevent degradation of our water resources.
"Aquascaping" is the term used to specify the planting of aquatic and wetland plants, much the same as landscaping describes the planting of terrestrial plants. Do your part to keep our local waterways safe!
