Ponds are one of the most popular garden features in the UK. They require little maintenance and are a design feature also bringing wildlife into your garden. In this blog we discuss how to find the right pond for your home.
A Koi Pond is one of the biggest ponds to have in your garden as they are designed to house big fish. Instead of having greenery and other aquatic plants, this pond is specifically designed to hold fish and nothing else due to its size. If you are very much into wildlife, this pond is perfect for you as it provides the ideal conditions for breeding fish.
A water garden pond is made to be a landscape feature in your garden. It gives you the opportunity to invest in various aquatic plants and design your own water garden with the use of waterfalls, greenery and rocks. Fish can still be put in this style of pond, but due to the features only small fish can be used such a goldfish as they cannot outgrow the environment.
If you are looking for a traditional style pond that blends into your garden, a lake style pond is the perfect option. The mud bottom creates a real feel and means you can have free reign on how you decorate it. Choose your fish wisely and make sure you research the size of the fish and how big your pond is. A natural waterfall hidden under rocks really brings this pond together overall.
