How To Accessorize Your Pond

To get the most out of your pond, there are a few things you can add to its natural splendor to enhance your enjoyment. Managing a body of water on your property can be a lot of work, but it’s worth it if done right.


One way to catch everyone’s eye is with a lake fountain pump. Not only will this liken your lake to the Vegas strip, but it will help keep it healthy, as well. Fountains act as aerators, helping to provide your pond with the oxygen it needs to keep the fish alive and the algae from blooming. A fountain can become especially important in the winter, when oxygen is needed the most. If you’re feeling really over the top, feel free to coordinate some lights to go with it.


What’s a pond without a dock? It’s a great place to survey your piece of paradise and take in the sights and sounds. You can also customize it to fit your needs- will you need fittings for fishing, or some Adirondack chairs for lounging? Maybe you’ll want a ladder and jumping pad for cooling off in the summer time. These days you can build a dock out of splinter free material, as well.


A pond doesn’t look right unless it’s teeming with life. You can take this opportunity to stock it with quality fish that are either tasty or nice to look at. Depending on what your goals are for the lake, you could breed Koi fish or set up some killer bass fishing. Just make sure that whatever you put in there is compatible with each other because diversity of fish population is important for population health.

Turn your pond or lake into an outdoor oasis and an asset to your property value with some well-placed add-ons. Enjoy your fountain and feed your fish from your brand new luxury dock, and don’t miss the sunset over the water.
