How to Increase Pond Appeal

When it comes to ecosystem ponds, many people tend to think of fish and plants as their main decorative features. Though these features undoubtedly influence the aesthetics of your pond, there are many other features and decorative elements to consider. As leading providers of swim ponds, pondless waterfalls, and ecosystem ponds, the team at Fontana Ponds & Water Features knows how complicated customization can be. That is why we have compiled a list of 4 ways to increase the appeal of your pond regardless of the season or the size of your property.

Learn about some vital autumn pond care tips.

Effective Ways to Increase Pond Appeal

The following decorations and elements can significantly increase the appeal of your pond:

1. Landscape Lighting

Path lighting, garden lighting, and string lights are just some examples of landscape lighting systems that can be used to frame your pond at night. This framing naturally enhances the appeal of your pond while increasing safety by making it visible from any angle. By using landscape lighting, you can effectively highlight your pond and minimize the risk of slips, trips, or falls near it.

2. Water Lighting

Underwater LED lights can be used to illuminate key areas of your swim pond or ecosystem pond at night. Available in white or colour-changing configurations, these systems can be placed under waterfalls and other key areas of your pond to create a stunning glowing effect. There are also options for remote control and timer-based operation, allowing you to choose the best fit for your needs. When used in combination with landscape lighting, your yard and pond will become a stunning view, a unique conversation piece, and a great place to relax with guests or family.

3. Fountains and Waterfalls

Running water can create a rippling effect on the surface of your pond for enhanced appeal and a calming effect on viewers. To achieve this rippling effect, consider installing a fountain or waterfall in your pond. Fountains are typically installed in shallow areas of a pond while waterfalls are often more suitable for deeper areas. Fountains are available in a variety of shapes and sizes while waterfalls can be installed in various locations based on your preferences, allowing you to choose the perfect option.

4. Stone and Wood Features

Static and stationary decorative elements can contrast with the living and moving nature of your pond for a great aesthetic effect. Faux driftwood, stone statues, and decorative stones can all be added to your pond in strategic locations to enhance appeal and cover elements like the skimmer.
