Regency Random Rock paneling. Little garden ponds or fountains can add a really nice accent to your garden, deck or porch - whether you're aiming for that serene, Zen feel of a still-water pond, or prefer the pleasant murmur of water trickling out of a fountain. Before you start, make sure to pick the right location - especially if you're going for the pond. You don't want to position it right under a tree and then spend the entire summer picking out leaves or other debris. Another thing you may want to consider for your pond is adding some fish. A bunch of goldfish or koi swimming around can create a charming effect. Goldfish in particular can keep the mosquito population down – a nice bonus especially when you’re hosting an outdoor dinner party. If you decide to add fish, you may want to consider adding a water pump. Moving water provides more oxygen than still water. If you've decided on a fountain, try putting some rocks on the bottom, as in the picture shown above. The water hitting them will make an even nicer trickle-y noise, and acclimatize the fountain to the surrounding nature. Store-bought rock in the same color can create a harmonious, uniform look. If you prefer a more rustic appearance and don’t want to spend the money, walk along the local shoreline or in the nearby woods with a sand bucket. After a few evening strolls, you’ll accumulate a nice collection of multi-colored stones of different shapes and sizes.
