Pond Landscaping Sizes

So, when it comes to the size of the pond, there are some ways to make sure it fits and looks right in your backyard. In general, the pond size is measured in width, length and depth. These three measurements will determine the volume of water you need to fill the pond. Of course, the main factor to consider is your available space. Before starting, it is important to consider the scale of the rest of the landscaping and create a pond that will be in proportion with everything else. Let's take a look at the depth and volume and how it relates to the installation of the pond in your yard. We will go over these factors to best prepare you on this installation.


It may surprise you to know this, but a larger pond with a higher volume of water is easier to maintain. Why? Well, the water in smaller, shallow ponds often warm up quicker due to the sunlight. Which then offers up the perfect conditions for bacteria and algae growth and a murky looking pond. Not ideal! We recommend pond depths be at least 2 feet. 


The volume of a pond refers to the amount of water you will need to fill the pond. So, the higher the water volume, the cleaner and easier it is to maintain. In general, the volume of a pond is measured in gallons. It is crucial to know the volume of the pond, because you need to then have the correct pumps and filters for that volume of pond. 

Managing Pests and Predators for Your Pond

Many homeowners like the idea of a pond in their backyard with fish and whatever natural wildlife comes its way. However, what many homeowners do not take into consideration is that pests and predators frequent this spot as well. One simple way of limiting pests and perhaps even too many frogs is the inclusion of some predator fish. They will keep the insect numbers down, as well as control the tadpole population. 

But adding fish to your pond also means you will need to protect your fish, because there are predators that may want to prey on the fish in your pond. One quick idea is a bird decoy, such as a heron, since it can mitigate other herons and birds from wanting to join in. If you know your area has racoons, then it is important to make sure that the pond is deep enough for the fish to swim down and not get caught by the racoon. We can also construct hiding places within the pond landscaping scheme to further help these fish stave off elimination. And if you want to be extra cautious, a "scarecrow sprinkler" might do this trick. This is a motion-activated sprinkler that can surprise an approaching predator and scare it away.
