Why Every Deck Needs a Pond


Posted September 17, 2019 by aquascape

Most homes have a backyard deck or outdoor patio where you can relax, but have you thought about adding a pond to enjoy your outdoor area even more?

If you’re like most homeowners, you probably have a deck, patio, or balcony where you can enjoy the great outdoors from the privacy of your own home. You kick your feet up in your outdoor chair and enjoy the summer breeze blowing through your hair, but something’s missing. All you see from your deck is an expanse of grass and a few trees, and what you hear are the neighbour’s kids crying and their dog yapping. Your deck needs a view. And better yet, that view needs to replace irritating noises with melodic sounds. What I’m trying to say is … your deck needs a pond!

Take a look through these amazing pond ideas…


The owners of this deck enjoy a view of a meandering stream that spills into a pond by their lower level patio. A wooden bridge invites you to sit a spell and dangle your toes in the water.


Is this someone’s backyard or a vacation resort? Yep, it’s a backyard alright!


This deck wraps around the house and leads to a stone path that follows the stream along the back of the house. And the best part? There’s no lawn to mow!


Isn’t this the perfect spot for a morning cup o’ coffee or a fruity glass of wine in the evening? The waterfall creates the added dimension of soothing sounds.


Here’s a switch. This deck is at the front of the house with a beautiful, reflective pond to welcome visitors.


A gentle stream flows alongside the shady deck while a brass boy spitter provides an element of whimsy for those who linger and admire the scenery.


Who wouldn’t love this floating deck overlooking a waterfall that cascades into a pebble beach? The children love hauling their buckets and spades to play in the water and gravel.


A balcony and lower deck provide great views of this water garden. Relax on the patio furniture or take a trip across the stepping stones to see the fish up close.


Decks provide great feeding spots for fish. Koi will learn to eat food right from your hand.


A deck by the house wasn’t enough for these lucky pond owners. A brick patio extends from the deck to a wooden bridge that takes you further back into the yard for more water garden delights.


A shady spot on the deck provides cool relief on hot summer days, while the pond helps to lower the temperature.


This unique deck dissects the pond, providing multiple viewing areas to enjoy the abundant aquatic plants and surrounding landscape.

So if you’ve got a deck that overlooks your lawn and all you see is grass and a few flowers … why not turn it into waterfront property by installing a water garden or waterfall of your very own? You won’t regret it!
