Outdoor Living Space
Environmental sustainability has taken center stage in today's world, and water plays an important role as the world's greatest resource. An Ecosystem Pond is self-sustaining with very little maintenance. Although it takes many gallons of water to fill initially, over the long haul it requires less water than the expanse of lawn it replaced. Water features attract wildlife of all kinds, from birds to butterflies, to frogs and salamanders. Certified wildlife habitats are growing in popularity, and water is one of the elements required to achieve certification. Water gardening becomes your new hobby as you feel yourself drawn to its beauty and natural elements.
Most people think of outdoor grills and patio furniture when they think of outdoor living spaces. Once the outdoor meal is over, what more is there to do in your backyard? While many homeowners turn to pools or hot tubs, they're discouraged by the amount of maintenance and chemicals required with these amenities.
For the price of a hot tub, a beautiful Ecosystem Pond can be installed, and less maintenance is required thereby providing more time to relax and enjoy friends and family. An Ecosystem Pond maintains clarity and quality of water through a balance of fish, plants, aeration, and filtration, often eliminating the need for chemicals. In northern climates, outdoor grills and similar features are typically enjoyed during the warmer months, whereas a water feature can be enjoyed year-round, add some pond underwater lights and you can double your enjoyment time!
