We hear 'misconceptions' all the time when we talk to people about koi ponds...so we thought it's about time to dispel some of the most common ones we hear. Often times we get excuses like; it's too much maintenance, a pond is too much money, I don't have room for a pond ...and the like. More often than not, we hear actual misconceptions like, it will attract mosquitoes, it's not safe for my kids, or I'll have to use chemicals to keep it clean. Many times these misconceptions come from ponds done wrong (which is another topic altogether). So, here we are hoping to help dispel these excuses, misconceptions, and plain ol' myths.
It's Too Much Maintenance
So this is really common, and we want to be very clear. There is no such thing as "maintenance free", everything requires some maintenance, including a koi pond or other water feature. Our ecosystem ponds are not maintenance free they are low maintenance. And the maintenance that we recommend is actually quite simple when compared to a pool or concrete bottom pond.
