“This is hands down my favorite of the 3 types of water features here!”
An ecosystem pond is waaayyy different than a normal koi pond. Ecosystem ponds practically take care of themselves, leaving you with less work and more enjoyment.
Ecosystem ponds use filters, beneficial bacteria, rocks, plants, and fish to keep the water clean and clear. The only thing you have to do is empty any skimmers and have it maintained at least 2 times per year.
“Ok, so I can see how it’ll change our home, but how about our lives?” Dan asks.
Ecosystem ponds are one of the most peaceful places to be. Listening to the calming sound of the waterfall, watching the fish lazily swim, the plants waving in the breeze, and just being around a body of water is relaxing.
“It’s also a great opportunity to start water gardening AND it can make our house the spot to be,” Jan says with a smile.
“Of course, if we don’t want something that big we can go a little smaller with this next type of water feature.”
