One of the most beautiful and natural water features you can add to your home is an ecosystem pond. An ecosystem pond is a water garden that functions together with its surrounding environment, where you work with Mother Nature, not against her.
Ponds are one of the most important ecosystems on the planet. They play host to a total interrelationship of all organisms in the environment–such as birds, fish, frogs, plants, and many microscopic organisms. Ponds not only create a natural ecosystem in their defined environment, but they also fit into the community or life cycle of the entire ecological region. So you are helping your neighborhood as well.
