Whether for fish, water storage, habitat, or aesthetics, PA can design and implement a pond for your needs. Often, we suggest small ponds for most of our edible landscapes as a source of food and water for beneficials. Bees, beneficial wasps, birds, frogs, snakes and other important plants and insects all rely on water for their survival. By putting a small pond in your landscape you ensure these beneficials will manage your system throughout the year.
Let’s face it, an exponentially growing human population will find potable water a scarcer resource as time goes on. As water issues come to a head rainwater collection and storage becomes your best source of irrigation, fire, and potential drinking water. For irrigation and fire, storage ponds are ideal elements to accomplish this goal while offering all of the habitat and aesthetics mentioned above.
PA will custom design a pond to meet your needs. There are many uses for ponds. Below are some additional reasons why a pond is a good investment. Pond designs have a huge range of scales, planting options, and maintenance needs, so keep in mind the functions you are looking for in your water element
In addition to ponds, PA designs biofilters and water falls to keep your pond aerated and clean. These features are custom designed to your and your pond’s needs and functions. Most ponds require an oxygenating element to keep algae down through keeping biological activity up. This can be as simple as certain plant communities or air pumps or as complex as waterfalls and running creeks.
