Are there any legal regulations or permits required for building a pond?
The regulations and permits for building a pond vary depending on your location and the size of the pond. It is advisable to check with your local government or relevant authorities to determine the specific requirements, such as permits for digging, water rights, or environmental impact assessments.
How do ponds benefit the environment?
Ponds contribute to biodiversity by providing habitats for a wide range of plants and animals. They support aquatic ecosystems, act as water reservoirs, aid in groundwater recharge, and can mitigate flooding by temporarily storing excess water.
Fish vs fishless ponds
Fish ponds are designed to support and sustain fish populations and require additional considerations such as water quality management and stocking fish. They are often used for recreational fishing or aquaculture.
Fishless ponds, on the other hand, do not have fish populations and focus on creating a balanced ecosystem without fish. They may prioritize the growth of aquatic plants and other aquatic animals. Fishless ponds are commonly used for aesthetic purposes or to support specific wildlife.
How do I maintain my pond?
Pond maintenance involves regular tasks such as removing debris, controlling algae growth, managing vegetation, monitoring water quality parameters (e.g., pH, dissolved oxygen), and preventing excessive nutrient runoff from entering the pond.
Landscape Lighting F.A.Q.
What is the difference between a 2700 and a 3000K Light or Bulb?
Both of these values are color temperatures; a way to describe the appearance and color provided by a light bulb.
2700K or Warm White is more common and almost a soft yellow color.
3000K or Cool White is better for a formal setting or room.
How many Lights can I connect to a Transformer?
Take the wattage of the transformer and divide by the watts of each light. Never max out your transformer, eg. 100 Watt transformer with 5 Watt lights (100\/5=20). Technically 20 lights is the max but using 18 gives you piece of mind.
How far can I run my Lights from my Transformer?
Rules of thumb are as follows:
16-2 wire, up to 96 watts or 8 amps
12-2 wire, up to 192 watts or 16 amps
200 watts can go 200 feet
100 watts can go 400 feet
50 watts can go 800 feet
Do we carry/supply any solar Lights?
We have not yet found solar lights that live up to our standard of quality and would survive the shipping process.
Fire Feature F.A.Q.
Liquid Propane vs Natural Gas Fuel
Natural gas and propane fires are both much more efficient and user-friendly than wood-burning. Natural gas is a popular due it being cheaper and typically safer than propane. However, propane is much more environmentally friendly and efficient with its heat output.
Do I need special rocks for my Fire Feature?
All rocks have the potential to contain water, caution should be used with any type of rock you are heating up to very high temperatures.
Very porous rocks should be avoided, such aslimestone, pumice, shale, and sandstone. Rocks often have varying densities, which means some water could be trapped inside, and the rock could crack or explode when heated.
Do I need an ignition system?
The decision is up to you!
Ignition systems require more upkeep as they may have batteries or contacts that need to be replace or cleaned.
Keep in mind that all the Fire Features can be lit with a simple match!
