An Aquascape Supplies ecosystem pond works with nature, providing an all-natural, low-maintenance piece of paradise. Each component of an ecosystem pond plays a key role in keeping ponds balanced, clean and clear.
An Aquascape ecosystem pond is self-sustaining, requires very little maintenance, and provides an opportunity to have fish as pets, without the regular upkeep of an indoor aquarium. Pond plants give you the chance to broaden your gardening horizons with choices that go beyond the standard petunia and rose. Bird lovers will delight in the new variety of feathered friends that flock to a water feature.
Aquascape Supplies have made it easy for you to design and build your next pond, with complete kits available to suit a range of pond sizes. These kits include everything required to build the pond, so all you or your client will need to do is add the rocks, water, fish and plants.
HOW IT WORKS
An Aquascape Supplies ecosystem pond includes both a biological and mechanical filter.
The biological filter provides surface area for beneficial bacteria to colonise and removes excess nutrients from the water.
The mechanical filter houses the pump and skims debris from the water’s surface to prevent organic materials from accumulating on the pond floor.
ROCKS AND GRAVEL
Rocks and gravel protect pond liners from UV light degradation. In addition, rocks and gravel provide surface area for beneficial bacteria to grow and break down excess nutrients in the water.
Your pond’s recirculation system consists of a pump and plumbing. These elements create an efficient circulation system that keeps the water moving and provides necessary oxygen levels for healthy fish and plants.
Fish are an integral part of your pond as they reduce pond maintenance by grazing on string algae and bottom feeding from the pond floor. They also make enjoyable pets!
Plants add colour and texture to your pond while also providing beneficial filtration. They absorb nutrients in a pond, depriving algae of its food source. Pond plants are critical for the overall health of your pond’s ecosystem.
