Our Natural Ponds Do Not Require Harmful Chemicals
All of our natural ponds utilize nature’s own cleaning systems so that your pond will not require the addition of harmful chemicals. We can help your initial pond installation to rapidly stabilize to the conditions of the environment with the addition of natural bacteria, assist with aeration with a biofalls filter, and remove excess proteins (from fish waste and decaying plant materials) with a skimmer.
Owning and maintaining a natural pond does not require much maintenance at all after it stabilizes within a month or so. We recommend that you avoid adding fish or amphibians to your pond until the system has stabilized and you will then be able to populate your own private pond with whatever aquatic life forms best suit your personal preferences!
Accent Your Ponds With Attractive Fountains, Lights, Plants and Pets
Shaylor’s Ponds & Patios will accent your pond with fountains, lights, and other attractive design features, if desired. In addition, you may choose to stock your pond with popular pond pets including exotic koi fish, amphibians, and attractive plants such as lily pads and other intriguing aquatic flora. Hyacinths and Water Lettuce make excellent additions to ponds installed in Williamsport and surrounding areas. They help to create a balanced ecosystem, assist with filtration, and provide shade and shelter for pond inhabitants.
Pond Installation Contributes to Health and Good Land Stewardship
When you install a pond on your property, you provide entertainment and health benefits for your family and guests, but that is not all. The installation of a pond contributes to the overall ecological health of the landscape and biota of your entire region. When you install a pond, you are being a good steward of the land and the flora and fauna, as well as adding a highly attractive and valuable feature to your property. The installation of a backyard pond as a water source is a qualification toward having your property recognized as a Certified Wildlife Habitat by the National Wildlife Federation for those who may be interested in obtaining this designation for their property.
