You're excited, you know you want a koi pond! You can't wait to be able to watch your new fish swimming around and relax to the soothing sounds of your new waterfall and stream. But you are struggling with where to put it in your yard. This is a common question we receive, where should I put my new koi or fish pond?
Have you ever heard the term Pondless Waterfall or even Disappearing Waterfall and thought to yourself, What in the world is that? It sounds weird and how can you actually have a waterfall without a body of water? The Pondless or Disappearing Waterfall is an often over looked way to add the sights, sounds and beauty of water to your space without the maintenance of an ecosystem pond.
We all love our pond fish and koi! They swim about together, greet you at the surface for some food, and swim gracefully creating a calm respite for us to relax. You may have experienced going out to your pond and seeing one of your pond fish or koi not hanging out with the others and just sitting by itself in a corner with its fins clamped to it's side. It almost seems as though it's in TIME OUT. If you have or do experience this, it's a time to be a bit concerned for your fish friend.
July is hot, humid, full of sunshine, and fireworks here in New Jersey. It's also the month we mark on our calendars to perform our Mid-Summer Pond/Water Feature Visits. July marks the middle of our ponding season and the time has come to perform some important maintenance tasks to keep our fish ponds and water features running strong for the remainder of the season.
