Backyard Fish Ponds

What are

Ecosystem Fish & Koi Ponds?

Pondering Waters can help you realize that potential, offering outdoor enhancements ranging from fire features to to full blown ecosystem ponds and waterfalls. We know the importance of adding more space and of having an inviting yard for entertaining, playtime and relaxation.

Backyard Fish Ponds & Koi Ponds

Once you’ve decided what kind of pond you are going to build, determining its size and place to build in your yard or garden area will be the next important step. Pay special attention to the position in relation to views from inside any buildings, and plantings in regard of shadow, continued growth of roots and foundation.

You should always consider what pond shape & form would best fit in with your house and your garden design. A stark pond, for example square, L-form, or fully round pond will properly fit in with a modern house and garden. 

A naturally formed pond, for example, is kidney-shaped & fits in most all other spaces without issues. The natural style pond is our most popular install with most Oakland, Wayne, & Macomb County, MI area Homeowners.

Where Should I Construct an Ecosystem Pond?

To get the maximum enjoyment from your backyard paradise investment, we suggest having your backyard fish pond or water garden installed as close to the areas that you spend most of your outdoor time. 

We also suggest that you take into consideration the views from inside the house as well. Being able to see your pond lit up at night from windows, and listening to waterfalls and streams, with open windows will fill your house with the sound of moving water.

A lot of people make the mistake of installing their backyard fish pond or water garden to far away from the house in a “Dead Area” of their yard to try and make it interesting. In our opinion this is the worst possible location to try and get the most enjoyment out of your investment. Long story short… Move it closer to your house or patio.
