Ecosystem Fish/Koi Pond Design, Installation & Maintenance Services Contractor
Serving The Villanova, Montgomery County, Pennsylvania (PA) Area
Backyard Fish Pond Construction
The koi ponds & watergardens we at, Philadelphia Waterscapes, in the Villanova, Montgomery County, Pennsylvania (PA) area, construct for our clients rely on a naturally balanced ecosystem to stay clean and clear without the use of such unnatural ‘cures’ as pond chemicals and UV radiation sterilizers. Simply, the beneficial bacteria that colonize the filters, rocks, and gravel of the pond break down fish waste and other organic materials and turn the harmful ammonia into ammonium nitrate, which is plant fertilizer.
The aquatic plants, installed directly into the gravel substrate take in these free-floating nutrients, helping to starve algae, which want the same nutrients, out of the system. The fish will then graze the thin layer of algae that do try to grow on the rocks as well as any other organic material that may find its way into the pond. Once the ecosystem is established and balanced, you don’t need to feed the fish or fertilize the plants. The system is nearly self-maintaining.
If your looking for help with your pond, pondless waterfall, water feature or need your water feature cleaned, repaired or renovated, CONTACT US today to learn more about our installation & maintenance services.
We Install The Aquascape Ecosystem
Ecosystem ponds are freshwater ponds that have all the necessary parts that make up a real, living environment. From living organisms, like plants and fish, to non-living things, like air and sunshine, ecosystem ponds provide the essential base (water) for all those aspects of nature to work together to make a tiny, complete ecosystem in your own yard. Our ecosystem ponds are great for anyone who wants to enjoy observing the cycle of life from their own yard. There’s nothing quite like having an amazing, living pond, filled with plants and fish that you can look at and enjoy every time you step outside!
There is no one way to enjoy an ecosystem pond, your perfect ecosystem pond design could be a waterscape with curb appeal in your front yard, or a private vacation spot right in your own backyard! Ecosystem ponds add vivacity and beauty to wherever you decide to place them. We at Philadelphia Waterscapes, located in the Villanova, Montgomery County & Bucks County, (PA) area, can help you decide which ecosystem pond design would be best for you and your family.
Ponds are ecosystems, in that they play host to a total interrelationship of all organisms in the environment– birds, fish, frogs, plants, and many other varieties of microscopic organisms. Thus, ponds not only create a natural ecosystem in their defined environment, but they also fit into the community or life cycle of not just one homeowner’s back yard, but of the entire ecological region. An ecosystem pond works with Mother Nature to provide food, shelter, and safety to the wildlife around it. It also provides you with an all-natural, low-maintenance piece of paradise.
