Have you ever thought about having a water feature in the Fayetteville, NC and surrounding areas. Well if you have you would most certainly want to add fish to your pond. Fish add a wonderful element to your water feature. There many different types of fish you can add to your pond. there are KOI, COMMON GOLDFISH, BUTTERFLY KOI,
KOI are the Diamond that most people link to ponds but there are many more than that. .That same goldfish that stares at you from the glass at the fish store is a perfect fit for your pond. Goldfish are incredibly resilient and can be a great starter fish for a new pond owner. Best of all, they come in all, shapes, sizes, and colors and if you have a container water garden or preformed pond, they're a great fit!
Wait there is More!!!!!
If you do your homework, you'll find that there are plenty of fish (many native to your area) that would be perfectly content in your home. From minnows to mosquito fish, to carp and game fish - your options are endless. Fish are a major part of your pond's ecosystem and they are important to your pond's overall health, but they also make great pets. And best of all, regardless of what's happened in your life, they'll always be there to greet you at the end of a long day. Ain't that grand!?
Give NDH Aquascapes a call if you have questions or if you want a pond to add some fish to.
Lighting up your yard for Spring...
When it comes to lighting outdoor spaces, most tend to think of simply illuminating the property. I often think about illuminating the focal points of the property such as a water feature of a outdoor living space. One of the most underestimated aspects of landscape lighting is that it can actually extend living space physically as well as visually. Here in the Fayetteville(NC) area during the spring time having outdoor lighting can extend the time you have outside.
When light is brought to a dark back or front yard, it visually pushes the boundaries of a house. The more elements that are lit, the more people will push the edges of where a person will tend to gravitate to beyond the interior of a house. Pushing this boundary creates a visually striking look for the outside of the house, especially when the interior lights are turned off.
Have some Landscape Lighting installed before Spring
