Simulation of water in the country
We already told you about the design techniques illusions in the garden, which are able to visually increase the size of the suburban area. For this purpose, the paintings on the walls, models of entrance doors and mirrors. To simulate water in the country is right for the latter option.
For example, if you use a mirror, the simulated water at the cottage is just a few hours. All you need, to prepare the territory (soil levelling, remove garden debris) and laid horizontally mirror. In the end, the mirror will reflect the celestial expanse and distant will seem, this is a small pond adorns a suburban area. The contours of the mirror hiding behind low-growing plants and all, simulation of water in the country is ready!
Materials to create a simulation of water in the country
The mirror is the most easiest material to simulate water. Its disadvantage is, in cloudy weather the Creek will acquire a dark gray color (the reflection of the clouds), that immediately will give the idea for the garden. That would create more original and beautiful fake pond, you must use volumetric materials bluish tint. Under this criterion suitable such materials to simulate water, as:
- Decorative gravel blue and blue tint
- Linoleum blue
- Tile (you can even battered ceramic tile)
Better to give preference to decorative gravel, working with him much easier, and the Creek seems the most real.
How to make imitation water using gravel?
In order, to make a faux water decorative gravel you just need to prepared soil, to scatter the material and decorate it the contours of the plants.
That would make the stream more fake real, can be made of gravel waves, and the brook to pour beads of different colors: in the center dark blue, on the banks of the lighter. This will create an image of depth and shallow water in the artificial pond.
That would over time, this idea for a garden is not spoiled for the weeds between the stones, it is recommended that during the creation of the stream to lay on the soil protective PVC film blue color.
It is also recommended to make the composition larger, adding to the simulation of the stream another popular idea for a garden – dry Creek.
That's the whole essence of the simulation of water at their summer cottage. As you can see it's pretty simple and no cost is needed!
