One of our crews is finishing up work at this old historic estate in Bethlehem, New Hampshire! The landscaping for this property had to be integrated into an existing ledge, partly consisting of a giant rock. We put in a swimming/Koi pond equipped with a three pump system for maximum flow and circulation, an aerator, and color changing underwater LED lights! Both the lights and equipment use a Pentair Easy Touch System which can be activated with any Smartphone or tablet. The pond is fed by a huge, curving waterfall that starts from behind the gazebo.
This Customer Contacted Landshapes when he started noticing his trophy brown trout start to die off. The Pond is about 180' Long X 40' Wide X 14' Deep which is plenty large and deep enough to harbor large trout. The one thing we notice on our initial visit is that the Pond did not have any moving water in it. Moving water in a pond is essential to keeping the water oxygenated for aquatic life. This not only includes the trophy trout but frogs, salamanders, and insects as well. We installed an AirPro aeration system with an AirPod diffuser. These are self contained systems that are the most efficient and quietest in the industry. Not only does the system oxygenate the pond it adds the element of bubbling and moving water which is appealing to the eye as well.
Landshapes rehabs a 10 plus year old Koi Pond and Water Fall at Gardeners Supply. The pond had had problems for years with loosing water daily among others. We started by moving the Large Koi into temporary holding tanks with areators. The pond and waterfall were then drained of all water. The next step was to remove the liner and underlayment. At that point we started to examine the stacked stone structure for stability and realized that a good portion of the structure had to be taken apart and rebuilt making it more stable. After rebuilding the stone structure new under lament and liner where installed and the pond and waterfall were refilled with fresh water. When the ponds temperature came up to an appropriate temperature the Koi were introduced back into the pond.
