Are you looking to unwind from your stressful world of busy work and family schedules? Imagine relaxing by the sparkling waters of your own beautiful backyard pond or water feature.
Whether it’s the ocean, rivers, lakes or ponds, people have been drawn to water for thousands of years. The sound of trickling water is soothing, and gazing into water can be a calming experience. Moving water releases negative ions, which some say help relieve stress.
A backyard pond does not have to be high maintenance. A well designed pond will include the right types of flora and fauna that will work together to keep the water healthy and algae free.
Water garden plants fall include beautiful floating plants, like water lilies, and other types that provide oxygen. The right mix of plants will keep your backyard pond balanced and clean. Koi fish can be a beautiful addition to your backyard pond, but might require some additional work to keep them alive and healthy. Whether your backyard has a slope or is flat as a board, a good designer can incorporate a waterfall into your water feature.
Building a koi pond or backyard pond is not as simple as digging a hole and filling it with water. A good designer takes many factors into account when planning a water feature, including considering whether the spot will receive the right amount of sun and shade, whether the terrain is steep or flat, how close to the house the pond should be, whether the pond will require a lining or filtration system and how big and how deep the pond should be.
