Floating Plants are happy in the middle of the pond, their roots are attached meaning they do not need to bed themselves to the pond floor.
Floating plants offer shade and help to remove nitrates from the water. Ideally one to two thirds of your pond should be covered by plant leaves such as lilies, floating or deep water plants.
