4 advantages of a plant filter in the pond
No pump required
It is a natural filter with plants and bacteria that eliminates the need for a pump or filter.
Purifies the water
The roots and leaves of pond plants absorb waste products from the water.
Prevents algae growth
The water will heat up less quickly, resulting in less to no algae growth.
It is a natural filter where plants and bacteria provide water filtration.

Plant filter as a natural water filtration system in the pond
To optimally purify a pond, a good plant filter important, combining the right types and amounts of pond plants. It is important to use the right pond substrate so that the plants can adhere well to and within the substrate. In addition, oxygen plants such as hornwort, crabgrass and waterweed should be added to properly purify the pond.
Summary of the YouTube video: "Wetland Filtration for Pond Health" by Ed Blue from Aquascape
In this YouTube video, Ed Blue of Aquascape discusses the concept of wetland filtration, which mimics the natural process of filtering toxins from water through wetlands. The wetland filter consists of a snorkel and centipede module to slow the velocity of water and settle sediments at the bottom. Aquatic plants and pond substrate in turn remove nutrients and create a living ecosystem that requires high levels of dissolved oxygen. The size of the wetland filter can be adjusted according to the volume and pollution of the water. The video provides a step-by-step guide on how to create a natural plant filter for all kinds of types of ponds or water features.
Your contribution to the environment and biodiversity through a plant filter in the pond
In this YouTube video, Ed Blue of Aquascape discusses the concept of wetland filtration as a natural and effective way to purify water. Wetlands are known as the "kidneys of the earth" and filter toxins from the lifeblood of the earth, which is water. A wetland filter is a type of filter used in ponds to naturally keep water clean. The filter causes the water to flow slowly so that dirt and sediments sink to the bottom and can be easily removed. The filter also has aquatic plants and substrate that remove nutrients from the water, keeping the pond clear and clean. Aquatic plants play a crucial role in the pond's purification process because they absorb nutrients produced by algae and other pollutants in the water. This reduces the ability of algae to develop and keeps the water clearer and healthier. In addition, pond plants provide oxygen to the water, which is essential for maintaining a healthy and balanced ecosystem. Using a plant filter is a sustainable solution for purifying water because it does not place a burden on the environment. It is a completely natural solution and can be adapted to the specific needs of the pond. By improving water quality using a plant filter, pond owners can create a healthy and aesthetically pleasing ecosystem that helps maintain biodiversity.
Wetland filter researcher: Ed Blue of Aquascape
Ed Blue is a representative of Aquascape, a company that specializes in designing and building water features and ponds. In the link video, he discusses the concept of wetland filtration and offers a step-by-step guide on how to build a wetland filter/natural plant filter for ponds or water features.
Pond specialist and naturalist: Simon van der Velde
Since 1986 Simon van der Velde as a pond specialist and helps people realize their dream pond with his company "Van der Velde Water Plants". His vision is to restore biodiversity in the Netherlands, Europe and eventually the entire world, by inspiring people to build a natural pond in their garden. When designing these ponds, he avoids the use of pumping systems and filters, because these are not necessary if the pond is designed in the right way. This way, nature can do its job as it was originally intended.
