Making the reed bed

We started preparing the ground of reed bed.

Basically, reed bed is filled with layers of sand and stones. Plants are growing in it, and with their roots are cleaning the waste water from the house. The water then flows into the water pool.

The water pool works as a water collector and storage. It collects water which went through the roots of the plants in the reed bed. Also, it gathers the rain water and melted snow in the winter time.

The water pool has to be done properly, so no water will escape. The sides of the pool need to be smooth enough so the rubber layer would not be cut.

We made the ground of the second pool as smooth as possible, we covered it with old carpets, and then we put the rubber layer.
