When starting a new Koi pond project one thing you need to know is that a water garden and a Koi pond are two different things entirely. Water gardens are typically smaller and shallower and are designed to add distinctive water elements such as water lilies and other water plants to a garden landscape. Goldfish and other small pond fish can also live comfortably in a water garden.
Constructing a Koi pond, on the other hand are typically larger and deeper and include important elements such as a deep area that is at least 36″ deep in order to allow your Koi fish room to hide from natural predators such as cats, raccoons and herons. Remember Koi can grow quite large and they will appreciate the extra room to swim, dive and hide in. Another important aspect of Koi pond construction is the installation of a good filtration system and being sure that landscape and fertilizer run-off will not drain right into your new Koi pond.
