Ecosystem Pond Construction / Refurbs
Our ecosystem ponds mimic mother nature, ensuring superb water quality. They can be designed for fish and / or wildlife. You don't need to have rocks, some clients do not like them, but the benefits include stability & the perfect conditions for natural filtration.
At one end of an ecosystem pond we create an intake bay, a natural skimming area into which solid matter like leaves collect instead of sinking to the bottom of the pond, resulting in far less sludge build-up
At the elevated end, we have our filter and "spillway". This can take the form of a waterfall, a small cave or it can be integrated into the main body of water, if you don't like the idea of a waterfall. The water is pushed from here towards the intake bay. Within this area we construct a filter which carries out biological and mechanical filtration.
Additional options include under water jets for an extra clean environment, as well as lighting to bring your feature to life in the evening.
Our features come with a range of unique benefits
- We use natural filtration systems, our features do not require chemicals or extensive maintenance to remain clear.
- We utilize intake bays into which leaves and other debris is gathered for simply netting-out now and then.
- The pumps are isolated in a vault within the feature, which is covered by gravel and rocks to keep the natural look. This prevents leaves and other matter from entering the pump and jamming it, and also minimizes the chance of the pump harming wildlife.
- We can also use aeration systems and underwater jets to further help flow and filtration.
