The water areas have been an inseparable part of the park architecture, since its early development. Today it is almost unimaginable not to predict water surfaces in the design of parks and gardens. The only elements that have changed through the years are the composition and the positioning of the water surfaces in a given location. Aesthetic value of certain aquatic forms and motives may have changed, but their application and significance have always been in accordance with the needs of the time period.
The monotony caused by excessive foliage is cleared up with implementation of water surfaces in the parks. They are one of the most important aesthetic elements. Their application (in natural or artificial form), significantly enriches the visual composition of each park. Water elements are of extreme importance for the quality of life and the sustainability of the ecosystems, and at the same time they contribute for increasing the attractiveness of the landscape.
