Your own Montgomery County pond installation

A Montgomery County pond installation gives you access to relaxation all the time. The sound and sight of water can instantly calm the senses. imagine being able to go home at the end of a long day and sit outside and look, not at just your grass, but at a beautiful Montgomery County pond installation, complete with a stream and maybe even a waterfall.

All the stress from your day melts away as you sit near your pond and listen to the water flow over the rocks and boulders. It sounds just like it does when you are hiking through the woods and hear the flow of water and stumble upon a river. It really is your own personal backyard oasis, one you can escape to when you want, stay for as long as you like, and return to as often as you like.

Why A Montgomery County pond installation?

There are so many reasons to get a Montgomery County pond installation.  Building a pond in your backyard is making a decision to contribute positively to the larger ecosystem. When you have an ecosystem pond in your backyard, you are creating a habitat for animals to live; for shelter, for food, for safety. Most of the animals that may live in the pond will be small, from dragonflies, toads, frogs, turtles, to birds, but animals of all sizes have a role.

What About the Water?

Since we mentioned ecosystem, no ecosystem is complete without water. Initially it takes gallons of water to fill a Montgomery County pond installation, but the pond itself is self-sustaining and requires minimal maintenance. The lawn that was removed, to make way for the pond, actually required more water and maintenance than the new pond.

A nice sustainability feature of owning a pond! Of course, its not all about the ecosystem or how much water you may save, there is much more to look forward to; pond plants and fish are what many people look forward too.

Light up the night with beautiful pond lighting

Pond LightingWHY POND LIGHTING?

Nighttime is the only time one can see the whole pond, inside and out. During daylight hours the surface of the pond is highly reflective, acting like a mirror to the sun. You can see reflections of nearby objects like buildings and trees on the surface of the water, but it is very difficult, even with very clear water, to see down into the depths of the pond.

Pond lighting Information

We recommend using LED bulbs in pond lighting. We use Aquascape LED bulbs, 1 watt and 3 watt. Most pond systems take 2-3 lights and a transformer. Larger ponds may be use 4 or more lights.

Purpose of Pond Lighting

Not only is lighting up your pond an aesthetic choice, but it is also a safe choice.  While you use your lighting to highlight and accentuate the pond’s appealing qualities, you have the added benefit of outlining clearly for your guests where the pond is so that they can be careful around it.

Places for lights:

Less is more with underwater lighting.  Here are some places to consider:

  • Light on waterfalls is dazzling.
  • Illuminate the stream bed; the moving water will create magical lighting effects.
  • Don’t just light water to light water. Feature objects which are interesting to look at, such as: – Interesting rock formations – Fish caves – Plant material, especially water lilies.
  • Marginal plants

AquaReale also recommends using pond lights inside the pond to shine on things outside the pond. This reflective look makes it look like the water is dancing. Contact us to talk about lighting or any of your pond needs.
