Backyard Fish Pond Construction
There is nothing quite like a fish or koi pond in a landscape built by a professional Pond builder or installer. The soothing sound of cascading waterfalls, the sight of graceful, colorful koi swimming in the water, and aquatic plantings give you your own piece of paradise in the Orlando, Tampa, Kissimmee, and Central Florida areas. Water gardens are the perfect cure for a stressful lifestyle and give you a paradise oasis right in your own yard.
Ponds are ecosystems, in that they play host to a total interrelationship of all organisms in the environment– birds, fish, frogs, plants, and many 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. But few pond builders have a true sense of the art of construction and creation it takes to make your pond look real and function properly. The Pond Monster, servicing the Winter Haven, Orlando, Tampa, & Kissimmee, Central Florida area, takes care to hand-pick boulders complete with moss and lichen. We know the art of rock placement to complete a natural look. And we also know how to properly filtrate your pond so it will stay clear and be low maintenance.
Location and size are the two most important decisions you’ll make about your water features in Central Florida. By some estimates, 90 percent of the original water gardens sold are replaced later with larger ones. An enthusiastic pond hobbyist always finds new plants or interesting fish to add to their investment. As a general rule, a 180 square-foot, or 11′ x 16′ pond, is a good “standard” size water feature. Trace your prospective pond out on the ground with a garden hose to help you visualize what the finished size will be.
