Having a pond in your yard has many purposes; it provides a calm feature for you and family and friends to enjoy. Adding a pond to your backyard is a great home for beautiful fish, such as Koi and goldfish, and ponds attract and provide a sanctuary for indigenous wildlife such as dragonflies, frogs, toads, turtles and birds.
Baby frogs and toads (tadpoles) are generally a desirable pond inhabitant because of their algae-eating habits.
They create a friendly eco- system within the pond. Frogs and toads are also beneficial to gardens for their help in controlling insects. A pond is a great teaching tool of environmental awareness to children and caring for a pond can teach children how a natural ecosystem works. This helps them understand the responsibility we all have for our environment. A simple pond is wonderful but there are other options of adding a natural looking waterfall to make a pond even more impressive. Fill out the form below to start your backyard ecosystem.
