Once you have a pond installed, your life immediately changes. That might sound dramatic, but it proves true. The beauty alone is an enhancement to any outdoor environment, but along with that beauty comes peace, relaxation, new plants, and new pet fish. Water features create an outdoor experience like no other landscape element or home improvement. Whether you’ve had your pond for many years or just a few months, you might find yourself wanting to tweak it for ultimate enjoyment. Here are just a few ideas that might interest you.
Watch your water garden come to life at night with underwater lighting! Tuck lights into the waterfall and enjoy the shimmering effect of the light on nearby bushes and trees. Place lights underwater to shine across the pond so you can see your fish during evening hours -- we swear, they play tag! In the spring, you’ll see frogs dart across the shadows of the pond’s surface. Warm white lights create special ambiance, while color-changing lights create a spectacular display.
Driftwood is ideal for concealing water feature components or adding realistic decorative accents. The addition of driftwood looks great in and around your pond – however you choose to use it.
Faux Log Fish Cave
Enhance your pond and give your fish extra protection from predators when you add a fish cave to your water garden. Simply lower the Faux Log Fish Cave into your pond and watch your fish swim through it. The cave also provides shade for your finned friends during the hottest days of summer, and it looks extremely realistic.
Spitters and decorative fountain elements add a touch of excitement and a flow of water to your water features. Decorate your pond or waterfall with a toucan spitter, lazy frog spitter, naughty dog, spillway bowl(s), etc. There’s one to suit your taste and style!
These are just a few ideas to get your creative juices flowing. We'd love to see what YOU come up with!
