near the natural pond

Again, the advantages of this area - a wonderful view, a chance to relax with a fishing rod, swim and sunbathe on the beach.The natural reservoir eliminates the need to build in the country an artificial.This location area appreciated by those who do not have running water: Place the pump with a long hose, water for irrigation can be taken directly from the river.Of course, if it is close.Less hassle, and will care for the garden and vegetable garden: the land near the reservoir well humidif.

To do this, create a route on which the plants are planted, and tend to reinforce brick or masonry.

In this area there may be problems with water supply due to the fact that here is more difficult to hold water.In the construction of the well will need to dig a deep hole becausegroundwater usually occur deep.It is also likely difficulty with the construction of the fence: it must be aligned at the height.
