With the right approach and a good planting plan, you can save a lot of money and maintenance. The planting plan immediately affects, for example, the depth of the pond. So don't dig first and only then think about the planting plan, but do it the other way around. Plants are quite capable of filtering the water themselves and keeping it clear, clean and healthy. A good planting plan ensures that algae have little or no chance to grow.
