HomeBlogWhat You Need to Know Before Your Pond Installation

A pond in your backyard is a perfect place to unwind and watch wildlife. It is a wonderful place to sit and enjoy the beauty of nature. A pond installation will give your yard a magnificent focal point. Before your pond installation we recommend taking into consideration these three things.

What You Need to Know Before Your Pond Installation

  1. Location – The location that you decide to put your pond is very important. Before your pond installation we will consult with you to make sure that we are installing your pond in the best spot on your property. The location you select will need to have at least six hours of sunlight a day. But you will also want it to receive some shade to help protect from an overgrowth of algae. Be cautious about placing your pond underneath large trees. Trees will drop their leaves and can cause issues with your pond.
  2. Hie a Pro – It is possible to install a pond as a do-it-yourselfer. But a professional installation is the way to go for many reasons. A professional will be sure to select the perfect location, suggest and install features like waterfalls and additional landscaping, and ensure that when the project is complete that you will not have any future issues. If any issues do arise, they will often offer a warranty and can help to fix any problems.
  3. Plants – Adding plants to your pond will give it that finished look that is sure to impress. We suggest including floating, bog, as well as submerged plants. A common and beautiful plant to consider is the water lily.
