You’ve spent countless days preparing your backyard with beautiful landscaping and a perfect little garden.
There is an area off of your screened-in porch or deck that is lacking in something and you can’t quite decide what it is.
You’ve seen tiny little ponds and backyard waterfalls on celebrity shows and probably think that would never be a possibility for your yard.
But it is! Koi ponds, Koi fish ponds and waterscapes are actually more popular and easily accessible than you think. Once they’re installed in your backyard they are easily maintainable as well.
With the increased demand of koi fish ponds and waterscapes for landscaping, the prices have become more affordable and the products have become extremely efficient and functional. So what are these koi fish ponds and waterscapes we speak of?
A koi fish pond is a pond that you see on TV or in people’s backyard. It usually is smaller with clear water (not blue but clear) and several big stones encasing it.
There are usually big beautiful fish that resemble big goldfish in them. You can get the koi fish pond with the fish or you can opt for a koi pond without the fish.
A waterscape is a beautiful, soothing and tranquil small and miniature waterfall that is in your backyard. Usually the waterscape will flow into the koi pond, but some people opt to have the waterscape re-circulate back around to the waterfall.
Waterscapes offer a relaxed atmosphere if you are looking to make your backyard into a little getaway.
If you feel either a koi fish pond, koi pond or waterscape is the route you want to go to complete your backyard landscaping you should now begin to research the different brands and decide which one you want to go with.
A koi fish pond is a bit more extravagant and requires more maintenance. If you have children, a koi fish pond may not be the appropriate choice as children could fall in while trying to get at the fish.
A koi pond is a beautiful and tranquil thing to have in your backyard. If you decide to go with the pond you do need to remember there is the chance of children or pets falling into the pond. While it is not at all deep (1 ½ to 2 feet) there is still the chance.
Have fun with your backyard landscaping and make your home a tranquil getaway spot.
