How do you want to use your pond?
Ponds can offer recreation, landscape beauty, and a peaceful spot for restoration and reflection. You don’t necessarily have to belong to a fishing family to enjoy the benefits of having healthy fish stocked into your pond. However, the types of fish you introduce can impact how you want to use your pond. Considering how you’ll use the water could impact the type of vegetation growing in the pond. For example, whether you have or want boat access might impact the vegetation you have in and around the pond surface.
When choosing pond supplies for the plants and flowers that are most attractive to you, you also need to consider their natural occurrence and how they’ll work together with the other plants and animals in your pond. A wide array of flora and fauna need to not only work together to maintain a healthy ecosystem, but can sometimes also be adjusted within a natural symbiosis to take into account your beauty preferences.
What’s your short-term and ongoing budget for pond supplies?
If you’re considering adding a pond to your property, or buying a property with an existing pond, you need to consider both the cost of getting the pond into a healthy state now and what it will take to maintain it over the life of the pond.
