Get Closer to Nature with an Ecosystem Pond Tyrone, GA
Yard Ecosystem Pond

Lanier Yardscapes has installed countless water features throughout Georgia, and we know that variety and individuality is paramount for our customers. Smaller yards are enhanced by the gentle sound of a bubbling urn or pondless waterfall. Larger gardens can be brought to life with fountainscapes or elaborate water gardens.

Many Georgia residents are becoming more environmentally aware, wanting their yards to not only look beautiful but provide a safe habitat for wildlife. Planting trees and wildflowers are just the first step in encouraging wild flora and fauna to visit your garden. Many animals are attracted to and benefit from a source of water, and Lanier Yardscapes can assist you with installing an ecosystem pond.

How Does an Ecosystem Pond Work?

The main difference between an ecosystem pond and other garden features is the provision of fresh, clean water. Natural ponds support life by being constantly replenished via an adjoining river or stream. In a closed pond, toxins will build up and oxygen levels depreciate over time, even if the water looks clear.

Your ecosystem pond will incorporate a pumped skimmer that will draw in dirty water and remove debris. This is then passed through a UV clarifier via an underground PVC pipe, cleaning the liquids. Finally, water is reintroduced to your pond through a biological waterfall filter to clean out any impurities and toxins.

Lanier Yardscapes recommends supporting the filtration system by introducing plants that naturally remove nutrients that would otherwise sustain harmful green algae. Decorative rocks or gravel at the bottom of your pond are visually appealing and allow the water to filter in a natural way. Additives placed in the water keep conditions healthy and make it more likely that amphibians and other animals will live and thrive in this environment.

Can I Keep Fish in an Ecosystem Pond?

While wild visitors to your pond like birds, frogs and newts are always welcome, many people want to add their own aquatic pets to their water feature. A properly maintained ecosystem pond should be able to sustain goldfish, as they are quite resilient. Allow your pond’s ecosystem to balance out before adding fish, which can take anywhere from a few months to a year.

If you want to add a large number of fish, or intend on keeping expensive and relatively fragile Koi, you should opt for a dedicated Koi pond. These ponds have additional features like a bottom drain and sediment chamber to remove solid waste. You will also need an aerator to keep oxygen levels consistent.

Lanier Yardscapes has extensive knowledge on what is needed to keep your pond inviting to both wild and domestic animals. Contact our store in Georgia today for more information.

Alex C.

Lanier Yardscapes came out to my property swiftly upon inquiry to give an estimate for our outdoor lighting project. I had several quotes, but it was the customer service and attention to detail that made our choice to go with this company. Communication process was smooth and during installation they took care to treat our home with respect. I would highly recommend this team in my own personal future projects or any interested in making their outdoor space enjoyable.

Jason R.

Alex and his entire Team were amazing! They were concerned with every detail and took the time to get everything just right, not stopping until we were completely satisfied. We highly recommend them.

Barbara F.

Alex and his crew do great work! They are all very nice guys, respectful and courteous as they work. The attention to detail is exemplary, and the whole crew take pride in the job they do, something that’s hard to find these days. They work as a team, and when Alex is on site, he works just as hard as everyone else. Very pleased with my landscaping, they are professionals.

Nikole L.

Lanier Landscapes did an excellent job! Ron and his crew worked hard and made sure that everything was done to our specifications. The crew was also very knowledgeable and cleaned up after themselves. When we learned that our sprinkler system needed an overhaul, they informed us ahead of time what kind of pricing we were looking at. Easy to work with! Ron was a hoot!

Bill M.

Alex Lanier and his crew did a wonderful job with a new stone patio for my back yard including some Landscaping and mulch! My wife is overjoyed. Not only did they do a great job but when I wanted a minor adjustment they came back out and did it for me for no charge. He also came in under budget for the mulch and did a Super job! It is a shame you only get 5 stars they deserve a 6 star rating. I will defiantly use them again and would highly recommend them to anyone else. Just know that because they are so good you need to book them well in advance.

Charles H.

Fantastic experience! Very professional in all phases of grading, irrigation preparation and sod installation. All of the crew were as nice as could be. We had some time constraints and Alex and his men handled them without hesitation. Stellar outfit!
