I have only actually decorated less than half a dozen outdoor koi ponds. It's not that I do not have the confidence in doing so. It is just that in most cases, outdoor fish pond pumps and decorating has always fallen into the area of landscape designers.
I thought about that pond and had the bright idea to build one for myself. As much as I really want a pond filter of my own, I wasn't sure of the design, construction and upkeep it would require.
There is nothing worse than fish pond construction and having problems with location of the pond. Building many fishpondf myself, I would like to share my expertise with you.Proper planning is the first step towards fish pond satisfaction.
Thus during the design stage the fish pond designer should locate the fish pond near a terrace or seating area to enable the best viewing of the fish. These graceful swimmers add an ambience of peace and tranquility to any watergardens plans you may have.
A good place to start is with a dealer who stocks fish pond supplies as well as books and leaflets that will give you some good ideas. Another good starting point is to study some basic, but well established design conventions.
