Ponds & Water Gardens

People love water gardens because they are so soothing, tranquil, and a haven of rest.  In a day and age where you are constantly bothered with computers, cell phones, and electronic devices, it’s very soothing to have a place to relax and get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

Koi Ponds are one of the most rewarding features you can add to a backyard. Imagine stepping outside your home into your very own backyard oasis, complete with a beautiful water garden. Sit back, relax, and enjoy the soothing sights and sounds of running water. Feel the cares of the world slip away as you enjoy your personal backyard pond!

If constructed correctly, the pond is self-sustaining, requires very little maintenance, and provides a relaxing environment with very little upkeep. Pond plants give you the chance to broaden your gardening horizons with hardly any maintenance.  Bird lovers will delight in the new variety of feathered friends that flock to a water feature.

Running water is one of the universal parables, appealing to something primitive and ineradicable in human nature.  Day and night it preaches – sermons without words – Torrey Bradford

How it works

Koi ponds work with Mother Nature to provide food, shelter, and safety to the wildlife around it. It also provides an all-natural, low-maintenance piece of paradise. Every piece of the ecosystem puzzle must be present in order for a true ecosystem to be in place. Eliminate one of these elements and you’ve got an unbalanced ecosystem.
