Water Features - Drowning Out the Noise

Imagine lounging in your back yard with a cocktail in your and the soft sounds of a babbling brook drowning out all the back ground noise form the city. Installing a water feature can help create this personal sanctuary and also become a fun hobby.

Water feature kits make it easier then ever to have a pond or stream in your backyard. They generally consist of a skimmer box which houses the pump at the bottom of the stream, rubber liner and a filter box at the top of the stream.

When hiring a contractor to install a water feature it is important that they have installation crews with water feature experience. Every pond is unique and it takes an experienced crew to select and place rocks and boulders properly. The small details of placing stone will make the difference between a good water feature and a great water feature.

Many people with ponds in their back yards find that water gardening and fish becomes a peaceful hobby. Various types of Koi and Goldfish can be placed in the pond. These fish help to keep the pond clean ad they eat algae that are present in the water. Plant material can be selected to make your small pond look just like a natural pond with lily pads, cattails and other classic wetland plants.

Maintenance on the ponds is simple as well. Natural bacteria are used to keep the pond clean. This is applied in a liquid or powder state through out the warm season. Once or twice a summer, the filters should be cleaned and the pump needs to be removed each winter.
