All of our ponds are specifically designed to look and feel natural, blend well with the already existing landscape, and provide a calm atmosphere that anyone can enjoy. However, water garden designs take this to a whole new level, by letting nature create a serene, balanced ecosystem that’s difficult to achieve through artificial means.
Water gardens, otherwise known as aquatic gardens or garden ponds, are designed to have a variety of plant life that naturally creates a healthier water quality. By absorbing nutrients in the water and filtering sunlight, aquatic plants prevent excessive algae buildup. Overgrown algae are not only aesthetically displeasing, but can even harm fish and other plants.
While too many algae are unwanted, it is still very important to have algae in your pond. It’s beneficial as a nutritious food source for fish, especially baby fish, and algae also oxygenate the water. With a naturally balanced aquatic garden design, algae are kept at optimal levels, providing food and oxygen for fish, while still preventing algae from running rampant.
