Ecosystem Ponds

Ecosystem” …. it sounds like blurb – but what does it mean?

Aquascape Pond Products are designed to work together to mimic natural processes. Water, fish and plants all play a role in the cycle of life and an Aquascape ecosystem pond mimics this natural cycle, providing a safe environment for families, pets and wildlife.

Aquasacape Ecosystem ponds have 5 key components:

  • Plants and fish
  • Rocks and gravel
  • Pond surface skimmer
  • Re-circulating water pump
  • Waterfall bio-filter

These go together to produce clean, clear, healthy water inviting birds and all kinds of wildlife to visit. It’s a great educational tool for young minds to learn about the environment and how it interacts while having fun.

Oh…..the best bit; not only do they give crystal clear healthy water but they are virtually maintenance free. contact us for more details

Ecosystem ponds work with Mother Nature to provide food, shelter, and safety to the wildlife around it. It also provides an all-natural, low-maintenance piece of paradise.

Every piece of the ecosystem puzzle must be present in order for a true ecosystem to be in place. Eliminate one of these elements and you’ve got an unbalanced ecosystem.

how an ecosystem pond works

Check out the things you’ll need to get your ecosystem pond in perfect balance:

Skimmer (mechanical filter):
will not only pre-filter the water and house the pump; it will also skim debris from the water’s surface to prevent the accumulation of organic materials on the pond floor.

BioFalls® (biological filter):
Provide surface area for beneficial bacteria to colonize and remove excess nutrients from the water.

Pumps:
an efficient circulation system will keep the water moving and provide the necessary oxygen levels for healthy koi fish and plants.

Rocks and gravel:
provide tremendous surface area for beneficial bacteria to break down excess nutrients in the water and dissolved organic debris on the pond floor.

Fish:
Koi reduce pond maintenance as they graze on string algae and bottom feed on the pond floor. Koi also make very enjoyable pets, providing hours of natural entertainment.

Plants:
Mother Nature’s true filters, plants are great for adding character to a pond by providing color and texture, but from a filtration perspective, they’re second to none. Thriving from the excess nutrients in a pond and depriving algae of its food source, the aquatic plants in a water garden, given proper coverage, are critical for the overall health of the ecosystem.
