How to Enhance Your Pond with Easy Add-On Features

Once you have a pond installed, your life immediately changes. That might sound dramatic, but it proves true. The beauty alone is an added benefit to any landscape, but along with that beauty comes peace, relaxation, new plants, and new pet fish. Water features create an outdoor experience that no other landscape element affords. Whether you’ve had your pond for many years or just a few months, you might find yourself wanting to tweak it for ultimate enjoyment. Keep reading to see our top choices to enhance your pond with easy add-on features.


1. Pond Lights

Watch your water garden come to life at night with underwater lighting. Tuck lights into the waterfall and enjoy the shimmering effect of the light on nearby bushes and trees. Place lights underwater to shine across the pond so you can see your fish during evening hours. In the spring, you’ll see frogs dart across the shadows of the pond’s surface. Warm white lights create special ambiance while color-changing lights create a spectacular display.
