A key aspect to consider when planning the construction of a formal pond is the outline or shape. When designing formal ponds, Fitz’s Fish Ponds almost always recommends a symmetrical shape, which means that one side of the pond should mirror the other perfectly. In most cases, lines which are straight or perfectly arched will be utilized to create the formal pond’s outline. Standard shapes which are used for these ponds are hexagonal, square, circular, and rectangular.

What are Formal Ponds?

A formal pond is a pond which is constructed with edges that are well defined. Edging will be incorporated on the outside of the pond’s structure in a manner which highlights its shape. Common materials which we use for edging include tile, concrete, cut stone or brick. Great care must be taken when deciding where to situate the pond; the best formal ponds are those which are focal points.

Some of the locations where we recommend constructing your formal pond include junctions where multiple paths converge, the end of paths, or centered beneath architectural features. We design formal ponds in such a way where the reflection on the water’s surface is heavily emphasized, so this is another factor to take into consideration when selecting a location. You can experiment by placing mirrors around your property or land to see what the reflection looks like.

Why Should You Get Formal Ponds?

Formal ponds can enhance the look of your garden, land or property in a dramatic way. They are beneficial to the environment and are much more classy and sophisticated than traditional swimming ponds. You can add fish such as koi to them, and many pond owners incorporate statues or fountains to make them even more stunning. Formal ponds when done correctly are works of art.

People construct formal ponds for the same reasons they make other renovations to their home or garden, because it promotes transcendence. Everyone wants their home, garden or property to be as beautiful as possible, and formal ponds are the perfect way to create a “wow” factor. Guests that visit your home will be attracted to the work we perform and will find it to be breathtaking. Animals such as ducks, frogs and butterflies will be attracted to it, and their presence will make it even more enchanting. While such ponds require maintenance from time to time the relaxation they provide makes the effort well worth it.
