REPAIR OF SLOPES OF KARPIEVA POND
We continue to talk about the work taking place in the gardens of the Russian Museum.
The other day, a part of the lawn cover on the slopes of the Carp Pond was replaced. This is necessary to maintain the aesthetic appearance of the entrance area of the Summer Garden from Pestel Street. The pond is also the summer residence of our beautiful swans from May to October, which attracts a large number of visitors.
Several times during the summer season, the water level rises due to the fact that the artery of the pond is inseparable from the Neva through the Swan Canal. This adversely affects the grassy layer along the perimeter of the water surface.
With the help of our contractor, we annually repair the slope and replace the grass stand, which allows us to maintain the garden in an aesthetic way for our visitors.
