If you’re looking to give your outdoor space a makeover this summer, building a pond can be a great way to give your backyard the facelift it needs. A backyard pond can add sophistication and charm to any outdoor space. They make a great landscaping focal point, a place to entertain, and they add value to your home. Here are a few of the things to consider when deciding to add a pond to your backyard from the landscaping specialists at Canada’s Gardenland.

Do You Have the Time?

While backyard ponds aren’t majorly time intensive, they do require regular maintenance and upkeep to stay clean and functional. A few hours per month will have to be spent maintaining the water, keeping it clean, properly filtered, and free of any infestations (stagnant water can be a breeding ground for insects so it’s important to take good care of your pond with the right treatment chemicals to prevent this from happening). If you have the time to commit to this maintenance, your backyard pond will stay beautiful and glistening for a long time to come.

Do You Have the Space?

The other factor to consider when deciding to install a backyard pond is space. If your yard isn’t the right size, even the smallest pond could take up more than half of your outdoor space, leaving you with little room to enjoy it. It’s important to make sure that the dimensions of your pond correspond with the dimensions of your backyard so nothing looks out of place. A professional landscaper can help you to design, build and install your backyard pond to make the process seamless so you can get the best result possible.
