Adding a pond to your yard is a great way to add visual appeal and property value. Among the many options of ponds you can choose from is the koi pond. Here’s how to decide if koi ponds are right for you.
- You want the minimal-effort pond: With koi ponds, the upkeep is minimized because the fish will naturally eat the insects and algae, so you only need to worry about the basic maintenance measures like pH balance and oxygen levels. The koi will even self-hibernate, so you don’t even have to worry about moving them in the winter except for the rare chance your pond freezes solid.
- Your backyard needs more excitement: Perhaps your backyard is a little too uneventful for your liking. Koi ponds can add extra visual appeal and excitement to your backyard as you create your own ecosystem with live fish. Koi ponds also promote tranquility and stress-relief and have been said to bring strength and good luck to others.
- You want to teach responsibility: One of the best ways to teach children responsibility is to get them a pet. Koi are much easier and less messy than a cat or dog. You can keep them outside and leave the children in charge of caring for and feeding them. Don’t worry — koi are great with people, especially when food is involved.
