Pond Crates

Pond crates help you create different zones in the pond. You can do even more with pond crates, namely create a plant island so that fish cannot reach the plants but you can still enjoy an oasis of plants.

Built your pond but forgot to create different zones? Or do you have fish such as Koi that demolish aquatic plants before they bloom? Then create zones in the pond with pond crates or create a plant island so the Koi's no longer control your plants

Pond crates with pond plants

With pond crates you can easily and quickly create height differences

Pond crates are ideal for creating zones, useful if you have a deep pond with no elevation changes that you also want to put some nice and filtering Sumpfpflanzen in.

The pond crates can be easily clicked together to create a height of 40 centimeters with just three crates. The bottom two crates are reinforced by pouring in a layer of substrate, so your zones stand like a house.

But that's not the only thing you can do with pond crates. In fact, you can also create a plant island. You do this by stacking several pond crates on top of each other, filling the bottom crates with substrate and placing 6 baskets of aquatic plants in the top crate. The idea is for the top crate to protrude about 1 centimeter above the water, so that your nibbling fish can hardly reach the plants.

Discover how to make such a Koi-proof island in our step-by-step guide below....

Step-by-step plan for making a plant island with pond crates

Step 1: Determine how many crates you need

Pond crate - 3 pieces

Measure how deep your pond is and calculate how many crates you need to make the tower of crates the desired height. Each crate is 20 centimeters high, so with three crates you can make an elevation of 60 centimeters unless you put plants in the top crate, then your elevation is about 50 centimeters.

Step 2: Fill the bottom crates with a layer of substrate

Fill the bottom crates with a layer of substrate of about 10 centimeters. This ensures that the crates are somewhat weighted so that they stand firmly. If the Koi/other fish then swim up against the crates, for example, they will not fall over.

Simon's advice for a beautiful island

Place 6 baskets of aquatic plants in the top crate so that the plants nicely cover the crate with leaves and flowers. This way, you will enjoy a full and green island and not sit looking at black plastic.

Step 3: Stack the crates in the pond

Pond Crates

Stack the crates in the pond in the desired location and to the desired height. Make sure that the edge of the top crate is about 1 centimeter above the water surface so that the fish cannot demolish the plants, but can only nibble on them a little.

Step 4: Plant placement

Place 6 baskets of pond plants in the top crate. The plants will have their feet wet, but remain well protected from the fish. After a few weeks, you will enjoy an oasis of colorful and full aquatic plants.
