A simple koi pond, a peaceful stream-bed or a dramatic waterfall. Water works its magic on any garden and enhances every landscape, providing a soothing focal point. Moving water provides delightful background music and masks traffic noise. Its easier that you might expect to add a water feature to your landscape. And we are here to help you accomplish this..
Water Features Come in Two Basic Types
Your first step is to choose between (1) a standing pond with water circulating and (2) a pond-less water feature that may include a streambed with or without a waterfall. Both of these basic types utilize a hidden tank and an electric pump to circulate the water. The construction methods and materials are similar same for both. Beyond that the design of the pond or stream can be as varied as your landscape and your imagination requires.
Do It Yourself or Have it Install by Our Pond Crew
Milbergers has complete pond and stream kits with all the parts, materials, plants, fish and instructions you need to install your own water feature. You are also invited to attend our free seminars on building and maintaining your pond and stream. All you need to provide is the water. Or, if you choose, The Pond Crew, our Certified Aquascape Contractors (CAC) certified natural pond builders would be happy to install your water feature for you.
Our water features are not water wasters. Water is held in a tank and is recycled through you water feature by an electric pump. Water features can even enhance your xeriscape garden. There is some loss of water through natural evaporation but that is no where near the amount of water used to water your lawn or gardens. When area water restrictions are activated there are no restrictions on your water feature.
Home Value and Wild Life
Water features add to your home value as a landscape improvement. Flowing water will attract birds to you yard better than a bird feeder. But the most important benefit is the enjoyment you will get from having your own self sustained ecosystem in your yard. Nothing can quite transform a landscape like a water feature.
