If you are looking for a garden fish pond, more than likely you are not interested in fancy Japanese gardens or a giant waterfalls. A backyard fish pond can be enjoyed year round by the entire family. Changing with the seasons, a pond is the missing ingredient to the perfect backyard.
The enjoyment of a fish pond can not be measured. Countless people enjoy their ponds in their backyards, only known by a small number of friends. These types of ponds are mainly about the fish, usually goldfish.
Often reproducing as fast as rabbits, goldfish average in size 10-12 inches as an adult. Sometimes complimented by a fountain or waterfall these ponds become a focal point of the landscape.
Now fish ponds can be safe for kids with an average depth of 18 inches. Shallow enough for a child to stand in; garden ponds are the perfect addition to any yard.
Be sure however, when planning for a garden pond not to place in the lowest area as this will cause additional issues. However, try to make it large enough and place it in the sun so that you can explore the new world of aquatic plants.
