ABOUT US

Backyard-KOI Pond Installation

Backyard Fish Pond Construction

 

No matter whether your Southampton, Bucks County, PA area home is on a city lot or an expansive country locale, Ponds By George, 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 Doylestown, Newtown, New Hope, Pennsylvania area. There are also many other things to consider. 

 

As in real estate, the most important consideration with a fish or KOI pond, waterfall or fountain 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 as maintaining the water quality. We, at Ponds By George, can help you decide where would be the best place to place your new pond installation. And also help you keep it clean and leak free. If needed, we also provide pond & waterfall repair services for your water feature, even if we didn't build or install it! CONTACT US to learn more or schedule a consultation.

We Install The Atlantic | Oase Water Gardens System 

 

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, fall 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 Southampton, Bucks 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 Newtown, New Hope, 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.

Ponds By George has many different pond design ideas and we are ready and available to design the water feature of your dreams. Many aspects go into the proper planning and design, and we would be happy to help you make the best decisions possible.  Contact us today!
