I enjoy the privacy of a master bath and a tub for a relaxing soak, add some soft tunes, and a glass of wine.

The concrete flatwork is all poured in place concrete that has been acid washed and scored. The stone on the wall is a natural stone. The deck is epi and covers the filters for the ponds.

How deep is the Koi Pond here?

1. If you have Raccoons in your area you need at least 4 ft deep so they will not be able to catch you fishes,
2. if you live in an area where the winter is cold you will also need to dig 4 ft to be bellow the frost line. Yor fishes need water and air and to hibernate in the winter.
3. You can buy small Koi at some Nurseries and pet stores for $1,5 they will grow in size according to the size of your pond and the amount of fishes you will have. The more room they have the more they grow

The ponds are 5 feet deep and have interconnecting underwater tunnels that allow the fish to seek cover from predators and also shade in the summer months.

This pond is not dissimilar to one we're about to build.... - runs along a hallway and will sit in a courtyard between two pavillions. Part of the pond's bottom shall be above our lower floor (the block is not at all flat) so waterproofing is of the essence. Is yours part of the building's original slab? Is it custom-made fibreglass, or simply dug out of the ground with pond liner on the bottom? It looks great. Thanks.....

What Houzz contributors are saying:

5. Add FishWhile koi are the most popular choice for fish ponds, Leidner recommends fancy goldfish. In addition to having ornate patterns and colors almost identical to those of koi, they're less aggressive and less expensive.Koi can range from $200 to $7,000 each, while fancy goldfish go for around $35 each.
Marianne Lipanovich added this to Koi Find Friendly Shores in Any Garden Style
The clean lines of a contemporary garden pool are a tailor-made backdrop for koi. The minimal plantings and spare hardscape allow the red and gold beauties to take center stage.

The fish pond here is a water feature in a contemporary garden design. The rock wall behind continues the sculptural theme of the walkway and the shape of the pond makes it interesting and edgy. the section of the timber walkway softens the whole look as do the touches of greenery with the plants.
