Today’s ponds and water features are broken up into 3 divisions,
1. Water gardens
2. Koi ponds
3. Pondless water falls
In order to achieve your water feature goal, you must first decide which feature best suite’s your needs. We will attempt to define each of the three Categories beginning with “watergardens”.
The “watergarden” is just as the name implies…
A garden of plants which grow in water and may co exist with fish and perhaps turtles. Watergardens have sometimes been called ” Ecosystems” because they replicate a biological system as found in nature. Water gardens exploded on the scene in the late 1980′s and are by far the most popular Water Features.
The second type of water feature is called a “koi pond” or “koi kichi” pond. the koi pond is the oldest type of man made pond in our modern world. Koi ponds usually implement backwash filters and UV sterilizer lights. These ponds are usually deeper than watergardens and the aim of a koi pond is to achieve the best water clarity possible.
The third most popular water feature is the pondless water fall or pondless stream. This type of water feature is of rather late invention and consists of streaming waterfalls which dump into a bottom reservoir and recycle the water with a bottom pump.
If you are still undecided, please feel free to visit our show room or check out some of our local water features in their South bay home environments.
