4 Reasons Why You Need a Pond

If there’s something we’ve learned from nature, it’s that we need water. From keeping us hydrated to providing habitats for plants and animals, ponds are essential in our lives.

From a place to take a relaxing swim to a place to watch the wildlife or fish, or a place to store rainwater – ponds can fulfill many needs and serve many purposes.

We at A&B Excavation can help you create a pond or expand an existing one to help you get the best out of the summer season. If you’re not sure whether or not you need a pond, read this till the end:

Here’s Why You NEED a Pond:

  1. Store or Hold Rain Water: 

Typically, after the rain hits the ground, sometimes runs along natural drainage in the property and eventually gets absorbed into the soil or washed down a storm pipe.  During more significant rainfalls the water can overtake the property and cause flooding and erosion.  But all the same, the water is there for a time and then gone.

If you have a pond, you can use that pond as a catchment area for your home or your office building. You can install a rainwater harvesting system and use the water collected from your roof or even from the gutters to fill your pond and use that water for lawn irrigation or to water a garden.  Moreover, you an ensure the significant rainwater is directed to a location where it won’t cause property damage and provides a more useful purpose.

  1. Improve the Look of your House or Property:

Ponds are one of the easiest ways to add value to your property. If you’re planning on selling your house, a pond is an easy way to make it stand out. And if you plan to stay on that property, a pond is a way to improve the visual ascetics and enjoy your land more.

Ponds improve the appearance of your home and add value to your property. You can use it as a decorative feature by adding rockwork, vegetation or a water fountain.

By installing a pond, you can give your home a much-needed boost in aesthetics and financial value.

  1. Provide Peaceful Space for Family Gathering:

Water is calming and therefore, ponds are a perfect place to unwind and relax when the summer heat gets unbearable. You can spend some quality time with your family sitting on the banks of the pond and enjoying the scenery. You could spend time fishing or feeding the fish, all while relaxing and taking time to unwind.

Furthermore, kids are a happy lot, and they love water. They’ll spend most of their summertime playing in water via creeks and ponds. So why not provide them with one? The best part about a pond is that it’s easy to maintain and very safe.

  1. A Beautiful Home for Wildlife:

Ponds are a great habitat for wildlife. As mentioned before, ponds provide a home for many different types of animals, from frogs and turtles, to fish and all types of birds.  Even many mammals could visit to enjoy the refreshing water.

Furthermore, ponds are great places to watch nature at work. They’re one of the best habitats for plants. They can help your garden grow better by adding nutrients to the soil.
