Backyard Fish Pond Construction
No matter whether your, Collegeville, Montgomery County, Pennsylvania (PA) area, home is on a typical suburban lot or a larger countryside, location; Apple Ponds & Water Features have a pond or water garden option available to fit. Making the decision to add a fish or KOI pond to your yard, is the first step to incorporating a quiet retreat, or maybe a beautiful place to entertain guests in the Collegeville, Pottstown, King of Prussia, Pennsylvania area. There are also many other things to consider.
As in real estate, the most important consideration with a fish or KOI pond and waterfall is location, location, location. The best place is where you will see it most, either in proximity to a patio or deck, or for viewing your stream and waterfall from indoors. Keeping your pond away from roof runoff and falling leaves, and finding an area free of tree roots, pipes or underground cables are just as important. Our Team at Apple Ponds & Water Features can help you decide where would be the best place to place your new pond installation, Contact us today to get started!

In order to have a successful water gardening experience, you must think systematically and understand the critical role of each ingredient in Mother Nature's recipe.
• The fish nibble on the plant life (and everything else), including the algae.
• In turn, the fish produce waste that, along with other forms of natural debris, falls to the pond's bottom.
• Debris is broken down by the aerobic bacteria and the other microorganisms colonized on the rocks and gravel all over the pond bottom.
• Once broken down, these substances are absorbed as nutrition by the plants.
• The plants grow and are once again nibbled on by the fish ... 'round and 'round it goes, infinitely.
So, in a naturally balanced water garden, you have this never-ending aquatic circle of life where all parts complement the others and play critical roles in the pond's natural born harmony.
Another consideration to include when planning your Montgomery County, PA pond are the maintenance requirements. Assessing your availability of time and desire to maintain plantings and fish versus a low-maintenance pond is important. Other factors are our climate here in Collegeville, Pottstown, or King of Prussia, PA area - size, style (formal or informal), water flow, and whether to include a waterfall and electricity access for powering a pump. There are also safety considerations, such as electrical and preventing access to small children.
