Protection of the edges of the garden reservoir

Securing the banks should prevent them from softening and the adjacent ground from sliding towards the water. Sometimes strengthening also prevents the damaging effects of the wave, especially easily formed on large ones, water surfaces not sheltered from the wind. Unprotected shoreline causes shallowing of the coastal part by flowing soggy ground and enlargement of the water surface. Strengthening the shore and adjacent surfaces is also necessary for hygienic reasons in the tanks used for bathing.
The method of making the shore should allow various animals to enter and exit the water. Thus, the banks cannot be made as vertical walls extending significantly above the water surface along their entire length.
When designing the shore strengthening, it is necessary to take into account the pressure exerted by the water from the side of the reservoir and the pressure exerted by the soil mass on the outside., the operation of which may be particularly dangerous after emptying the tank in winter. If the edges are to be encased with rigid walls, e.g.. made of concrete, it is necessary to properly foundation them in accordance with generally applicable rules. If an artificial tank is built with a specially made waterproof day, the bank reinforcements should also have a similar tightness.
If the cultivation of aquatic plants is planned in the coastal part of the reservoir, the inflow of water to these sites can be ensured by making special holes in the bank structure. Depending on the local soil permeability, such sites can be sealed at a certain depth, which prevents excessive water loss due to seepage into the ground.
