Ecosystem Ponds

This first type of water feature for backyards is an ecosystem pond. It’s called this because the whole pond is a living ecosystem that supports itself. Owners will still need to do some light maintenance so it keeps running smoothly, but it’s only a few minutes worth.

Homeowners install water features for backyards such as ponds because:

  • They love water, the sound, the smell, and just being near it
  • It’s an amazing focal point for any yard
  • It gives people a reason to get off their screens and go outside (especially curious kids)
  • Being near it helps them relax and de-stress from their day
