The koi ponds & watergardens we construct for our clients rely on an ecologically sound, organic, naturally balanced ecosystem to stay clean and clear without the use of such unnatural ‘cures’ as pond chemicals and UV radiation sterilizers. Very 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 wants the same nutrients, out of the system. The fish, in turn, graze the thin layer of algae that does 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.
Why Are We The Best?
Our water features are not just combinations of fish, rock, water, frogs and dragonflies — they are areas of meditation, points of exploration for children and meeting places for friends and family. It’s not about the water gardens; it’s about the lifestyle we help bring to our customers who enjoy the great outdoors.
We’re crazy about water features. Yards are like blank canvasses to us, and we paint with water. Where most might see a hill, an entryway, a yard, or any random patch of grass, we see a waterfall coming into a stream or pond.
We like to mix things up, with different sized features and different types of rock. The goal is to make the water fit the yard, and whether it’s a Dallas suburban home or a Florida tropical escape, we create a place of relaxation, peace and tranquility.
Rainwater Harvesting Basics
Why Rainwater Harvesting?
Pondless® Waterfalls are simply a re-circulating waterfall and/or stream without the presence of a pond. You can enjoy the sight and sound of running water without the maintenance of a pond.
The waterfall is undoubtedly the most beautiful and favored feature in a water garden. If space is lacking in your yard or you have safety concerns with a pond, go Pondless®! The name basically explains it all. It’s a waterfall and stream, without the pond. So why would you want a waterfall without a pond? The truth is that a Pondless® Waterfall isn’t for everyone, but it can be a great alternative for someone who isn’t quite sure if a pond is right for their family.
Final Note: When it comes to building a rainwater harvesting system it is better to hire a professional. If you are a going to tackle this project on your own it best to hire a rainwater harvesting expert for a consultation so they can give you tips and pointers so you don’t run into any major problems.
Rainwater Harvesting Options
Kids Love Ponds
For sure, kids love watching and feeding colorful pond fish. Koi are gentle creatures that will swim right up to be fed, accepting food directly from the hand.
Aquatic Plants in Ponds
Aquatic plants aren’t just used in the water garden to provide beauty and naturalization – they also serve the very important function of helping to balance the pond ecosystem.
The Secret to Clear Water
In addition to plants, fish, aeration, rocks and gravel, a low-maintenance ecosystem pond requires adequate filtration to help keep the water crystal clear.
