San Diego Koi Ponds and Pondless Water Features | Back
Water features are an excellent way to enhance the ambiance of your outdoors, increase your home value, optimize your home for entertaining guests, and create a stunning backyard focal point you can enjoy for many years to come. Western Outdoor Design & Build can help you understand all of your options and design a water feature to meet your exact wants and needs. Koi ponds and pondless waterfalls are two very popular options in Southern California. Koi ponds possess a unique beauty and can provide entertainment for the entire family. With a notoriously long life span, and a reputation for being personable fish, Koi make the ideal family pet. The mild climates of San Diego, Orange County and Riverside County are ideal for koi, goldfish or any sturdy freshwater fish that can withstand the fluctuating water temperatures of an outdoor pond. As with any live animals, Koi do require some maintenance, so for the busy homeowner water garden ponds are an excellent alternative.
Having your own water garden, also called an ecosystem pond, allows you to explore the wonderful world of aquatic plants. There are many beautiful species, including water lilies, water orchids, and cattails, which can help give your backyard an exotic new atmosphere. Your new addition can also attract wildlife such as birds and butterflies. Many homeowners accent their pond with hardscape, such as boulders and natural rock to create a realistic pond atmosphere.
Pondless streams and waterfalls are unique, maintenance-free water features which have been growing rapidly in popularity all over Southern California. Switch-operated, homeowners can turn pondless water features on and off, making them extremely energy efficient. When they are turned on, water will cascade down your custom rockscape and “magically” disappear into a small rockbed. This water is stored in an underwater basin. When the water feature is off, it is still aesthetically pleasing, carrying the appearance of a dry rockbed. San Diego, Orange County and Riverside County homeowners love pondless streams and waterfalls because they are uniquely hassle-free.
