Streams for your Fish and koi ponds in Rochester, Monroe County New York (NY) enhance your water gardens. When designing streams and waterfalls we give them a little twist with turns and bends for a nature look. The addition of water plants help soften up the rocks and give function by taking up the nutrients in the pond that algae compete for.
Stream Construction 101
When excavating a streamed into an existing slope of hill, we mark the stream edge and dig down about 6” to 8” deep. This allows enough room to accommodate the rock, gravel, and water with a couple of inches to spare. Those couple of spare inches will allow for some settling and compaction of the soil to keep the stream leak-free. The stream can be deeper, if desired.
The stream should twist and turn as it makes its way towards the pond. The turns will increase the sounds, and will also increase the number of viewing areas. The more places it can be seen, the more it’ll be enjoyed.
