You could always make two Verd - one of each!
To be honest, in this present garden, a formal, geometric pond would look best, but I'd still like to work a small wildlife one in somewhere, or a bog garden if I can't manage a pond.
This was the second pond at old house. The big pond fed into into it along a little rill - the gravelled area, bottom left of pic - and ran out at the far end via another rill and out onto the grass verge. There were flag Irises and Marsh marigolds, already there and we added a corkscrew rush and a water lily. We had lots of dragonflies, pond skaters and frogs etc in it. It was so overgrown when we moved in that my ex didn't know there was a pond there!
