4 Ways to Enhance Your Pond

Ponds | January 24, 2023
Effective Pond Additions

While ecosystem ponds and natural swim ponds are naturally beautiful on their own, owners often wonder if there is anything they can do to further increase their appeal and functionality. As a leading designer and installer of quality water features, the team at Fontana Ponds & Water Features knows that there are several great additions for ponds of all sizes. That is why we have compiled a list of 4 ways to enhance your pond to help you customize your water feature and make it a perfect fit for your preferences.



4 Great Additions for Your Pond

The following additions can significantly enhance the appeal, health, and safety of your pond:

1. Fish

Fish such as koi and goldfish can be a colourful and beneficial addition to any pond. In addition to adding a splash of colour and movement to your pond, fish can help keep the ecosystem balanced and healthy. This makes them an aesthetic and functional addition to swim ponds and ecosystem ponds alike. While fish are a highly beneficial addition to most ponds, it is crucial to ensure that you add the correct amount of fish to your pond and ensure that you do not overfeed them.

2. Fish Caves

To keep your fish safe from various predators, it may be worth investing in a suitable cave for them. These units sit on the bottom of your pond, giving them a safe place to sleep while adding some depth to the appearance of your pond. Many fish caves are designed to look like driftwood or rocks, allowing you to enhance the safety of your pond without compromising the natural appearance.

3. Decorative Elements

Decorative stones, faux driftwood, animal statues, and mini fountains are all examples of decorative elements that can be added to your pond to enhance its appearance. While most of these elements are purely decorative, animal statues can help to deter predators from entering your pond or eating your fish, increasing safety and appeal simultaneously.

4. Pond Lighting

Pond lighting can make your pond come to life after the sun goes down, creating a beautiful focal point for entertaining or a great space to swim in during the evening. Whether you want to go with colour-changing lights in the swimming area of your pond or you want natural lighting for your waterfalls, there are many ways you can enhance your pond with lighting.
