PERMITS... its almost a 4 letter word in NJ except it has 7. Ok, really, we've all dealt with them at one time or another when we are looking to do that exciting project on our home. If you haven't yet, consider yourself fortunate. Permits can be frustrating and sometimes turn an exciting project from exciting to not so so exciting quickly. You're thinking about installing a koi/fish pond or water feature, but will you have to deal with getting a permit from the town to have this beautiful addition to your landscape installed?
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?
To Build or Not to Build?
This is the first question you have to tackle once you’ve decided to grace your Northern New Jersey outdoor living space with a beautiful, low maintenance fish pond or water garden.
Should you do it yourself, or is it better to hire a professional?
Each year, we at A Frog's Dream meet with many soon to be fish pond and water feature hobbyists in the Morris County/ Northern New Jersey to help begin the process of creating their new waterfall or fish pond. And because share tons of information on all things "pond construction and pond maintenance," they often ask us who are some of the other pond builders and competitors we have in the area.
