Your Source for Ponds and Water Features in Grass Valley, CA

Your backyard is a great place to welcome family and friends for barbeques, parties, and other get-togethers, and creating an outdoor space that is relaxing and inviting encourages your guests to stay longer and enjoy their visit. A pond or water feature can help you create the soothing atmosphere you desire, and the team at Hills Flat Lumber can help you make it a reality.

Benefits of a Backyard Pond

A bubbling backyard garden pond is both picturesque and environmentally friendly. You can dress up a pond anyway you like with flowering water plants, greenery, tropical fish, and decorative items – you are limited only by your imagination. Water features will increase the value of your home because homebuyers are attracted to properties with attractive and innovative outdoor features. Also, water is naturally calming, so an outdoor pond creates a relaxing oasis for you and your family. A pond provides a perfect spot to nap, read a book, or enjoy a candlelight dinner.

Building Your Backyard Pond

Installing a backyard pond isn’t as difficult or expensive as it might seem, and with the right equipment and supplies, you can have your own backyard water feature in no time. Some of the main components you will need include the liner and underlayment, pump, a filter, and a water agitator to keep the water from becoming stagnant. For ponds smaller than 6 feet on a side and no deeper than 18 inches, you can easily do the digging yourself, but you may want to hire a professional to hook up the plumbing and electrical work.
