When you installed your pond, you hopefully designed it so the waterfall faces the viewing area, such as a patio or deck. Similarly, when you plan the aquatic or terrestrial plantings in and around your pond, you should have the same point of view in mind. You want to create maximum appreciation for the pond so it looks its best from the most important view on the property.
Before putting spade to soil, remember that there are several things commonly overlooked by many a would-be water gardener. Often, enough thought isn’t given to the project because building a pond can look so simple… but these overlooked elements are important for successful pond building.
A pressing goal of any pond builder should be to create a system that delivers top-notch water quality. Unfortunately, some pond owners become more concerned with the physical design and beauty of their pond as opposed to the principles of water chemistry needed to keep the system in tip-top shape.
With today’s busy lifestyle, it can be difficult to enjoy your pond during the day. Underwater lights create a whole new experience by your pond after the sun goes down. And if you opt for LED lights, you’ll save on energy costs while lengthening your hours of pond enjoyment.
