Installing plants and featuring wildlife around your pond increases the value and interest of your property. There are many types of flowers which thrive in water environments and plants that attract wildlife. Create a completely natural environment right outside your door.
An emergent plant grows underwater at least 4-5 feet deep. Though their roots are submersed, their leaves and flowers extend out on top of the water’s surface. A few common emergent plants in Wisconsin are:
-White Water Lily
The submersed plant is found completely underwater, with a few flowering above the surface. The plants are mainly found under shallow water, but can also survive up to 10 meters deep. Some of the main submersed plants in Wisconsin include:
These types of plants are grown in super shallow water and found in bogs, wetlands, and edges of ponds. Consider adding one of the following marginal plants to your gorgeous new pond:
-Red Cardinal Flower
Purchasing Koi or goldfish for your pond is a great way to add wildlife without going overboard. They are easy to care for and add something fun to your property. Be sure the environment is sufficient enough for the fish to find shelter, food, and move around. Frogs, grass snakes, and even turtles might migrate to your pond. Don’t be alarmed; as long as no creatures are eating your fish, let nature take its course.
Some plants and fish do better in Wisconsin environments than others. Loomis Landscaping will guide you through the process of finding the right fish or plants for your water feature. Regular landscaping from our team ensures a thriving water garden.
Installing lighting in and around your pond, fountain, and waterfall add an entirely chic feel to the aesthetic. When the sun goes down, your outdoor property comes to life. Enjoy the outdoors anytime; day or night.
We feature several different varieties of pond lighting to fit any style.
Your outdoor living area should be an extension of your property. It should be a place for mental relaxation and social gatherings; adding significant value and a unique style. Enjoying the outdoors has never been so easy!
While very small water features may freeze when the weather temperature dips, there is very little to worry about. Unless the temperature is consistently below freezing for an extended period of time, larger water features will only experience surface ice. The water below won’t solidify. Many water features will not need any special treatment to survive winter. If your water feature relies on pumps to run, Loomis Landscaping is available to winterize your ponds, waterfalls, and other features to prevent pipes from freezing and rupturing.
Pond landscaping is tough to maintain, especially with the extreme weather we have in Wisconsin. Hire our Waterford landscape design experts for our professional lawn care services, as well as patio installation, deck construction, retaining wall installation, and even snow removal services. Let Loomis Landscaping upgrade your entire yard this season and experience the joy of relaxing right outside your door.
