  • Metallic Garden Copper Toadstools
    by Gary Pickles These charming copper toadstools are sure to attract the Fairies into your garden They come as a set of three and are left natural so the copper will oxidise and change over the years Eventually verdi gris green will develop to further enhance the appearance The copper is intentionally left in its natural state to benefit from the constant changing patinas building up over many decades This

  • Copper Fountain Maintenance Tips
    bursting in Winter This is not a problem as when the pump is turned off in the Winter months the water simply drains back into the pond leaving the pipes empty If the pump is left on during a freeze then the water from the bottom of the reservoir which should never freeze if deep enough will keep the pipes clear If in any doubt then turn the pump off and if you have a shallow reservoir or one above ground remove and drain the pump during Winter to protect it Ponds Pebble Pools Green Algae can be a problem with any water feature and this can be controlled with an additive but it is always advisable to use an environmentally friendly one I have found however that additives can dissolve the oxide build up of the copper which is not environmentally friendly so they are best avoided in ponds where wildlife is likely to be Try to keep the water sweet by introducing oxygenating plants into a pond These don t have to be huge things and can even be floating plants so you don t even have to provide any soil just throw them in It s always better to try and work with nature and create a balance than to stress too much about keeping everything pristine it is a garden after all Pond Pump Even the cleanest of ponds or pebble pools will require the pump to be cleaned periodically How often this is depends on how much water is circulated how clean the water is and the size of the filter You will notice that there is a drop off in flow when the filter becomes really blocked so look out for this and attend to it when it happens or check it at regular

  • Metallic Garden - how to build a pebble pool
    if the pool is not of sufficient size If you are unsure then simply run the fountain on dry land note the area that that gets splashed and go slightly beyond this 2 Choose a reservoir The type of the reservoir should reflect the size of the feature You need to take into account the weight of the water feature and the amount of water that circulates through it but generally I would not recommend anything less than 25 litres for the smallest fountain The larger the capacity the less likely it is to run out of water in the Summer months so go for the biggest you can Copper fountains are relatively light so do not usually pose a problem with support unless you are going for one of the very large ones such as the Norway Maple or Ginger Lily In these cases you should take care that the lid is able to support the weight of the fountain 3 Mark out your area where the pebble pool is to be situated and find the centre point this is where the reservoir is to be sunk For the pool to work correctly you have to ensure that the top of the reservoir is below ground level and that the surrounding area has a slight slope towards it With this in mind prepare the ground ensuring that any sharp stones are removed and sink the reservoir into a hole in the centre A conduit tube should be buried under the soil to house the pump cable The pump should be installed at this point please ensure a competent person follows the manufacturer s instructions regarding electrical connection 4 Install a liner over the area of the pebble pool To prevent the liner from puncturing it is recommended that soft
