Edges to consider around your Dallas/Fort Worth Koi Pond

Your Dallas/Fort Worth Koi Pond is way more than just water.  It’s about the details.  It’s about emulating nature, so the stream or pond blend seamlessly with their surroundings.   While some people just want to add some rocks to a pond edge and call it a day, other appreciate that a water feature is all about the details.

Fnc Ponds makes sure to look at the whole picture when planning your Dallas/Fort Worth Koi Pond.  The edges around your water feature are just as important as the feature itself!

There are lots of things to consider then you are deciding what to do around your water feature.  Your outdoor living space is an important part of your home.  And remember—you can mix and match whatever materials you’d like!

Varied Rock Sizes around your Dallas/Fort Worth Koi Pond

Ignore the look of all rocks one size when planning your Dallas/Fort Worth Koi Pond.  You have a few options for your water feature when it comes to rocks, and again, it’s always best to mix and do a variety. For an almost beach-like setting, try gravel.  Animal and their owners all love this option.

We recommend some bigger stones and boulders to create a more natural look.  Boulders provide appealing nooks and crannies for plants while also helping to easily define the edges.

Flat rocks that appear to be floating above the water’s surface are also a beautiful design choice for your pond. They provide a nice, flat space for children to play and for adults to sit and admire the view.  Flat rocks make great steppers across a pond as well.

Patios and Decks

You can go right to the water’s edge when you design your pond.  You can take your patio, porch or deck right up to the edge. You can even do a portion of the pond with sand, so you can “wade in.”

Think about how you want to interact with the pond and your surroundings and then plan accordingly!  There are so many different patio and deck materials to work with—talk to us to see what we’d recommend for your goals and environment.

Dallas/Fort Worth Koi Pond Plants

We recommend a good mix of plants. We love mixing annuals and perennials for a natural look that you can change up each with each season. There are so many gorgeous plants you can use to accessorize your water feature.  Choose to decorate by season or holiday.  Christmas by the pond—even in Texas!  But think past that- beautiful flowering plants in spring and summer and some magnificent fall colors in the autumn.
