First, know what you want. If you have any ideas, visit the library or bookstore and browse the books, landscape, garden and pond magazines. You can also search the web and read and learn as much as possible.
Layout is the most important phase of the project. I have heard many complaints from disappointed customers after being given the chance to adapt to their new addition to the landscape. "I have had only deepened ... ... addedisland ... made longer and built a bridge ... built close to home ... installed a larger pump for the waterfall ... or ... built the highest waterfall or wider. "
Most of these wishes may be granted for a reasonable price, before or during construction. But wait until late means entering a major cost that can be invaluable. If your choice is for the object or function because of its cost and then to omit the structural preparation for the addition ofat a later time. You can plan and design the landscape to allow for easy additions to the Koi Pond and then only by the strategic placement of trees, sprinklers, drains and more.
When you determine exactly where you place the koi pond, take the time to explain. A garden hose is important for this work because it can easily be moved until the desired shape. Once this is achieved, you can build and paint spraying the ground around the perimeter of thetube. If there is any doubt about where to find the Koi Pond, take a couple of days and ask for advice outside. Walk around the yard while you're at the proposed site from different angles, especially in view from the house, the room where you spend most of your time.
Remember to take into account everything around it. What is the nearest tree? roots pose a problem later? There is enough sun all day? Some plantsrequire more sun exposure than others, like lilies. Know where the main electricity, water and sewer lines are routed to the house. Not so nice to discover after the fact that the slopes of gas or water through the center, 36 cm below the surface of a koi pond 48 inches deep.
No land-lock a part of your garden, which can later be necessary sewer, irrigation or heavy machinery. Previously carried out or remove these items and install the necessary sewers andsprinklers. If it is not convenient to run the sprinklers at the time, 4-inch exhaust hoses running under the section of the stream or pond to run low voltage wire and pipe rain later.
When it comes to deep koi pond, if you plan to have more than 18 inches deep, you should contact the local building codes to determine if a 6 foot fence is needed. You may also need alarms and door-closing doors to the house. If the site koi pond is notlevel, do not worry, you'll have all excavated dirt from the pond to be creative with irregular terraces and a koi pond and a waterfall or a top part of the sloping yard in a stream or river.
A pond can be placed on the side of a hill with the construction of a retaining wall to hold the parts of the hill. Driving with a stake in the ground to the upper surface is the koi pond. Continue with additional efforts inshape of the pond proposed to use a level as you go. Keep in mind how deep the koi pond should be and begin to remove the dirt. If you do, note the condition of the land and determine if you need only shovels and a pick, or will be necessary to rent a jackhammer. In addition, if the soil is sandy and unstable, you may need to shore up the walls with plywood, and supports for concrete casting.
Usually the bottom of a pond excavated can be used to create berms in the landscapemore mounding for a waterfall. If the Koi pond is the size of the excavated soil can be used to terrace at garden level, facilitating the half, raised koi pond. If you do not have access to the rear of a bobcat or excavator, additional soil must be removed by wheelbarrow and can be downloaded in a basket or container can rent.
The most important phase of the project water feature is the design, layout and without excavation. If you have not pre-planned and defined your waterfall and Koipond now, file this article away until you do.
It 's a pleasure to share with you. Until next time. Happy koi, peace and joy.
