Ornamental pond fish are an integral part of any ecosystem pond. Unfortunately, fish are often seen as creating a maintenance nightmare. Contrary to popular belief, fish will actually reduce pond maintenance, as they graze on string algae and bottom feed from the pond floor.
Ponds & Wildlife
Of all habitats that you might consider creating to attract wildlife, a pond can be the most satisfying. A well-managed pond adds a spot of beauty and tranquility to your landscape and provides food, cover, and water for an amazing array of creatures. Rich communities of plants and animals can exist in and around the smallest water garden pond.

Aquatic Plants are 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.
