Nature is our Focus Our focus is on creating an ecological balance of plants, animals, and water. See why it’s a better way.
Minimize Use of Chemicals and Fertilizers
Chemicals and fertilizers are absorbed into the bodies of amphibians and other animals. These can negatively impact reproduction and lifespan.
Embrace Natural Food Sources
Allowing more natural areas in and around the pond minimize the need to constantly feed your fish. Also the variety of food allows the fish to grow faster and healthier.
Minimize Use of Electricity
Minimizing the use of electricity SAVES YOU MONEY. It’s cheaper than installing expensive plumbing systems, filters, and constantly running pumps. It allows you to have more money to build a larger pond.
Protect Fish from Predators
While it’s nice to see our fish all the time, so can the herons, eagles, and other predators. Soil on the bottom of the pond adds turbidity and maximizes plant growth to provide ample cover from predators.
