A pond is an extremely versatile landscape design element for your residential or commercial property. Your pond can be virtually any shape or size to fit wherever you would like it to go. There are also a number of different features you can add to a pond to customize it even further. Here are just a few.
Fountains and Waterfalls
Fountains and waterfalls tend to be everyone’s first choices for their pond design. They are beautiful to look at, yes, but fountains and waterfalls also help to aerate the water in the pond and keep it moving. The moving and splashing water is also relaxing to listen to, like having an oasis right on your property.
You can also add plants in and around your pond. Certain grasses, vines, and flowers are extremely well-suited to pond life and can be very low maintenance. Pond owners tend to gravitate towards water lilies most of all. They are gorgeous flowers, and the lily pads shade and protect the fish. They also block sunlight which can help to slow algae growth.
When you add lighting to your pond, you can enjoy it at all hours of the day and night. A light behind a waterfall or inside of a fountain creates an exciting visual. If you have fish, you can watch them swimming around even when it’s dark out. Not only will lighting make your pond visually stunning, it will make it safer as well. When it’s dark outside, the lighting will illuminate the water so that people know not to walk in that area.
Last, but definitely not least, is everyone’s favorite pond feature: the fish! There are hundreds of different varieties of fish that can live in your pond. Your local aquatic store will be able to provide you with information on what fish do well in the environmental conditions of your area.
