From big to small, ponds, sometimes called water gardens, create a beautiful and useful feature for your property. Be it your summer cottage, home or business, ponds can provide a place to relax as you watch the budding ecosystem flourish. Sitting by a natural-looking, fully functional pond is a great way to get away from the stresses of life.
Creating a habitat
When properly installed and maintained, ponds can be a great habitat for all kinds of wildlife. Frogs, fish, turtles and more can thrive in a home pond and, with proper treatment, ponds are not a mosquito hatchery as some would believe. There is nothing more tranquil than sitting by a pond and watching the pollywogs and fish swim while frogs hunt for any pesky bugs that may have meandered into your yard. Plus, there are wide arrays of plants to choose from that are not only beautiful to look at, but also play an important role in keeping your mini-ecosystem alive and well.
Our experts can show you which aquatic plants are best to provide food and shelter for fish, prevent the water from overheating, provide oxygen and even keep your water crystal clear. Our team can even give you tips on how to maintain your pond plants and ensure they thrive. A water garden does require some maintenance as most aquatic plants need help to survive, but the experience is worth the extra work as it creates a relaxing, tranquil environment.
The perfect pond
Ponds can come in all different shapes and sizes with a variety of features. Ponds can be round, angled or linear. They can be lined with natural stone, earth or machine-cut, interlocking blocks. Ponds can be fully customized to suit your needs and fit any space. The design potential is seemingly unlimited and could include very little plant life or be a complete ecosystem with all the bells and whistles. Ponds can also include interesting features such as waterfalls or fountains that just add to the overall ambiance of your property.
