    Yes. This koi pond has a biological filter and pumps to help control the water quality. Thanks.

    You can plant the koi pond w plants that provide shade & use up the excess nitrogen in the pond. A uv algae filter & oxygenator plants help too

    The terraced landscape, accentuates the levels of the house in a very complementary way, looks amazing.

1. Specimen tree. A specimen tree is any tree that’s used alone as a major focal point in the garden. It can be a large shade tree with a spectacular spreading form and strong upright trunk, like the Chinese elm (Ulmus parvifolia) shown here. A specimen tree in a landscape defines the space by creating shade and a focal point. Specimen trees get better with age and should be planted with plenty of room to spread and grow. Other ways to use specimen trees include choosing specialty cultivars with unique forms, like weeping varieties, or even smaller ornamental trees, to create a focal point in a smaller space.

Add shade and aeration. Shade is a big part of what will make you happy when you’re sitting by your pond in the summer. It also contributes to clear, clean water. Algae growth is driven by the sun; the more shade you have, the less likely your water will turn green. Stagnant water is another enemy of a healthy aquatic ecosystem. The more you use waterfalls, fountains, bubblers and aerators to keep the water moving, the better. Oxygen feeds the aquatic life cycle, ensuring that decomposing plant matter breaks down readily so it doesn’t cloud up the water. For a small, symmetrical pond like this one, a single bubbler in the middle is sufficient. For larger ponds with a waterfall on one side, be sure to position the pump on the opposite side to create flow throughout the pond, ensuring that the oxygen is evenly distributed. Filtration devices are typically installed just above the waterfall, so the water is simultaneously cleaned and aerated.

Add water. Cool shade gardens are great spots for small water features for two primary reasons: 1. There will be less water loss due to evaporation in the shade than in the sun, and 2. a water feature adds to the calm serenity of the space.A small reflecting pool or koi pond, like the one here, is right at home in a protected shade garden.See how to be water wise with a great fountain

Capture reflections on water. Water features are great instruments to use in our quest for inviting light into our garden spaces. Water churns, bubbles, spills and cascades, all the while capturing light in ever-changing ways. A properly sited and designed water feature can be a mesmerizing focal point. I wholeheartedly recommend that you consult a pond professional, and that you view his or her work in other gardens, before you design and install your pond. A poorly designed water feature will most assuredly be an expensive disappointment.Find pond designers on Houzz

Geometric doesn't necessarily mean rectangular. This perfectly round pond provides the same structured effect. No matter your pond style, adding a fountain or waterfall will help aerate the water.

Too formal for our purposes but nicely done.
