A) Proximity to the house.
B) Where if your favorite spot to unwind inside?
Proximity to the House
Might you enjoy the pond more often, if it is closer to your outdoor living space?
The lay of the land close to your house will help determine what size Koi Pond you can have. Ideally, close to where you sit often or spend a majority of your outdoor time. Consider the space around your patio chairs to be ideal. Imagine this: your family around your patio set (table/chairs) enjoying a summer evening bbq meal with the pond next to you.
Inside Viewing Angles and Budget
In the end, most of the time, when trying to figure out what size pond works best for you, the deciding factor often comes down to budget. Minimally, for maintenance purposes, we recommend that your pond should be at least 8’ x11’ because anything smaller will prove to be harder to control algae and the health of the ecosystem. Large Koi need space to swim, as well as, more water volume to balance out the ratio of their poop to clean water while it goes through the filtration system. For more information on the balance of the ecosystem, read our blog:
