Above ground ponds can be a wonderful alternative to standard ground ponds. In fact, depending on the terrain you’re working with, traditional ground ponds may be out of the question. Above ground ponds provide a variety of options in terms of landscape. For instance, you can construct rocks around it, or install cinder blocks and cover them with plants. Above ground ponds are also ideal for waterfall features.
Why You Need Above Ground Pond Services
There are a number of reasons why you should consider installing an above ground pond. They are the perfect solution for those that are unable to install traditional ground ponds because there are too many trees to dig around, the water table is too high, or the terrain is rocky or hilly. Above ground ponds are also ideal if you only intend to live in a place temporarily.
Above ground ponds are measured by gallons, and in most cases, they will make use of a liner so that the water is contained. They may be referred to as water gardens, koi ponds or water features, and they are considered to be a closed system, akin to a swimming pool which is above ground. Waterfalls are a good addition above ground ponds, especially smaller ones, because they allow for water circulation while increasing the aesthetic beauty of the environment. It is also common to add a stream between the pond area and the waterfall. For above ground ponds where a waterfall and/or stream doesn’t make sense, we can use fountains or aeration systems to achieve the same effect.
The greatest advantage of above ground ponds is their versatility. They come in many variations, and can be constructed with something as simple as a pump and liner with some goldfish, and plants for filtration. Pond owners that prefer not to have fish, could install a water feature such as a pondless waterfall. This way, an underground liner can be used to contain the pond area.
