Owning a pond is more than just a physical experience, but an emotional one as well. Physically, you can see a pond, hear its trickling water traveling down the stream, tangibly feel the koi as they come near your hand for food, and smell the flowers. However, some of the biggest advantages are the psychological benefits ponds provide that aren’t so apparent.
Koi fish have been embraced by Chinese and Japanese culture since the 17th century and have grown in popularity throughout the decades. Their beautiful colors and symbolism of courage and strength has captivated the interest of many throughout the world. One of the biggest luxuries of Pond Life is creating an environment for these fascinating fish in your backyard. In fact, owning a koi pond brings a long list of benefits to you and your home.
Having a water garden in your backyard is a luxury that invites peace and relaxation. It is an oasis for the mind and can help calm you down after a stressful day. Denotatively, peaceful resemblances are the physical feeling water creates; you feel peaceful as the water flows. However, connotatively, the symbolic meanings of water make the element more special than it appears.
