Pond Enhancements

 

Lighting

With today’s busy lifestyles, homeowners are not always able to be at home during the day. The addition of lighting to a waterscape allows owners to experience full enjoyment of their backyard paradise at night as well.

 

To ensure years of carefree enjoyment, we only use the highest quality LED light fixtures with a full five year replacement warranty and an estimated 40,000 hour lifespan. These fixtures are super energy efficient with only about a 20% operating cost compared to a traditional halogen light. We also include a low voltage transformer with a photocell so you will never need to adjust the time for seasonal changes.


Pricing varies based upon water feature selection.

 

Stream

Waterscapes become the focal point of any backyard with their waterfalls and ponds. The waterfalls bring the excitement of sound and crashing water into a variety of settings, but streams are the enticement for all the wondrous wildlife we cherish.

 

Birds, butterflies, and dragonflies add color and use the slow moving water of the stream to bathe and drink. Pets also love drinking the fresh, cool, naturally filtered water. Adding a stream to a water feature gives it the natural look of a mountain creek with multiple falls.

Fish

Koi... the jewels of the water garden! Everyone who has koi loves the joy of feeding them, watching them swim through caves and waterfalls, and even naming them. Koi and goldfish come in every color and shape, including some with long, graceful fins. Fish are not only friendly and beautiful, they are also low maintenance pets.
 

Facts about fish

  • Koi & goldfish come in a wide variety of sizes, depending on seasonal availability.

  • They both thrive in all seasonal outdoor environments.

  • They are able to breed by the time they reach 56” in length.

  • They can grow in relation to their nutrition, water conditions, and are also affected by their genetics. Jumbo fish will get large, regardless of tank size. Koi can get to sizes in excess of 24”. Check out Butterfly Koi. These koi have the long, flowing fins, with the beautiful markings of koi (typically 10-15” in length). Goldfish are perfect for any size pond small to large.

  • Dormancy occurs during the winter, once water temperatures drop below 50 degrees F. This is also the point at which they should stop being fed. As long as the pond does not freeze to the bottom and an air hole is provided on the pond’s surface, your fish will survive the winter.

  • Healthy water is critical to fish health. Keep your pond filtered both mechanically and biologically.

Protect your pet with a fish cave

Protecting your pets is important. We all cherish our pets, and your fish will quickly become a part of the family. A fish cave will protect your new pets from predators while also offering a cool shelter during hot summer days. We incorporate a fish cave into a shelf of your pond and cover it with stone and gravel to maintain a beautiful, natural look.

• Fish Cave $400 (installed)
• Two fish caves $700 (installed)

 

Plants

Aquatic plants aren’t just used to provide beauty and naturali-zation, but they also serve the very important function of helping to balance the pond ecosystem. Their valuable biological filtration helps remove nitrogen, ammonia, nitrates, and other minerals that algae would otherwise feed on. In addition, the plants provide food, shade, and protection for the fish and wildlife that live in and around the pond.

 

Water lilies are available in hardy and tropical varieties. They both come in a wide variety of colors, shapes, and sizes, and the leaves provide fish with shade from the heat of the summer sun, cooling the water and making algae control easier too.
