Eco System Ponds

Our pond designs work with your backyard elements to create a natural and beautiful environment. An ecosystem pond offers a low-maintenance way to provide a graceful and environmentally friendly sanctuary for fish, wildlife and aquatic plants that works with, not against, nature.

We design each pond and water feature to take advantage of the natural features of your yard, and to reflect your unique sense of style. Waterfalls, streams, ledges and landscaping all add to the beauty and drama that a custom pond provides.


Ecosystem ponds work with Mother Nature to provide food, shelter, and safety to the wildlife .

Skimmer (mechanical filter): will not only pre-filter the water and house the pump; it will also skim debris from the water’s surface to prevent the accumulation of organic materials on the pond floor.

BioFalls® (biological filter): Provide surface area for beneficial bacteria to colonize and remove excess nutrients from the water.

Pumps: an efficient circulation system will keep the water moving and provide the necessary oxygen levels for healthy koi fish and plants.

Rocks and gravel: provide tremendous surface area for beneficial bacteria to break down excess nutrients in the water and dissolved organic debris on the pond floor.

Fish: reduce pond maintenance as they graze on string algae and bottom feed on the pond floor. Fish also make very enjoyable pets, providing hours of natural entertainment.

Plants: Mother Nature’s true filters, plants are great for adding character to a pond by providing color and texture, but from a filtration perspective, they’re second to none. Thriving from the excess nutrients in a pond and depriving algae of its food source, the aquatic plants in a water garden, given proper coverage, are critical for the overall health of the ecosystem.

Low Maintenance

Ecosystem ponds provide an all-natural, low-maintenance piece of paradise. Every piece of the ecosystem puzzle must be present in order for a true ecosystem to be in place. Eliminate one of these elements and you’ve got an unbalanced ecosystem.
