Don’t make the mistake of thinking any garden pond can handle Koi fish. That would be a big mistake. A koi pond is a complex water environment. It’s a water filtration plant with fish in it. One of the biggest mistakes people make is not making the pond big enough. Koi fish are large. They need adequate space to move around in.
There are many things you have to consider when you start a project to build a Koi pond. You have to provide for good water quality and filtration. Koi fish give off a lot of waste that needs to be continually removed from the pond. Good aeration is needed to keep the oxygen level right. There is also a variety of equipment that needs to be installed.
You need to thinks about picking the right location. Make sure it has the views that are most desirable so you can enjoy your pond. Make sure it’s located close to all the utility hook-ups you need. And don’t forget about easy access to the location if you plan on using any power excavation equipment.
