Constructing a water feature for your Akron, Ohio or Green, Ohio backyard is a wonderful way to improve the look of your outdoor space, but be warned it can become quite addictive, especially if you add fish such as koi or goldfish to your pond. The best way to ensure that your water gardening project is beautiful is to draw inspiration from nature. Studying natural water features such as streams, ponds, and waterfalls can help you determine how your own water garden should look. However, it’s important to note that backyard water gardens often have a higher population of fish per gallon of water than their natural counterparts. And that’s fine as long as we respect the pond or water gardens’ ecosystem—the balance between aquatic plants, fish, algae, bacteria, and other living organisms.
