Ecosystem focus: 

We create ponds that reflect what Mother Nature does naturally by crafting ecosystems that are naturally balanced by utilizing biological filtration. The biofalls and full rock coverage provides surface area for the beneficial bacteria to colonize and remove excess nutrients from the water. We understand that fish and plants are also integral parts of the ecosystem.

While fish are great pets they more importantly absorb excess plants and debris. Plants are Mother Natures’ filters and help balance the entire ecosystem. We utilize native aquatic plants in all of our builds especially larger builds where filtration is completed by recreating wetlands found in nature. Furthermore, treatments used within our ponds are all safe for the environment, plants and animals.
