Tips and Trends:
• A pond can be designed by the homeowner to reflect his/her individual style. Designs easily can blend with the natural elements in a desert landscape to create an area for quiet reflection.
• When setting up a pond, invest in quality products, especially when purchasing a filtering system. In the long run, good products require much less maintenance and repair.
• Hydroponic gardening uses fish waste as fertilizer for plant utilization. The goal is a balanced and self-contained system for the flora and fauna to thrive.
• The most common items to consider when constructing the pondscape include: the size and depth of the pond, a liner or concrete style options, treatment of algae, and practices to ensure an optimal life for your fish.
