It’s winter, and while there may be snow in the forecast, Maryland enjoyed two entirely spring-like days this past week, which started to get us geared up to spend more time outdoors. Even if we can only longingly look outside from our sunrooms or out the window while waiting for the weather to get warmer, there’s one great landscaping feature that can provide endless entertainment whether you’re indoors or out: a pond.
Ponds are microcosmic ecosystems that create an environment for interesting wildlife to come flocking to your yard, bringing beneficial and beautiful animals into your outdoor space for you and your family to enjoy.
In order to create a natural looking pond that blends seamlessly with the rest of your landscape, use stacked rocks and logs that will create a transitional area between the ground and the water – this also lets critters come and go with ease. Allow debris to settle on the bottom of the pond, and use native plants to help foster an environment that can balance itself, preventing too much algae growth.
A landscaping professional in Baltimore, Maryland with experience designing ponds and other water features can help you create a healthy habitat where wildlife will flourish in your own backyard. At Lehnhoff’s Landscaping, we will assist you in determining the best spot on your property for a pond, installing pumps, waterfalls, and fountains, as well as prepping your pond appropriately so that it can keep itself in balance.
