You will find that there are many considerations when you are deciding on where to start a water garden on your property. One of the first things that you will need to decide is where you would most like to have a water garden. Away from the house, away from where the children play, near enough to your other gardens to be considered an extension of your gardens, and then you will have to consider light, the soil combination, and sources of water when you are considering where to place your water garden.
