Why Would You Want A Natural Pond?


I. Food Production

Vegetables and Herbs
  • Organic
  • Less water usage than soil based growing
  • Plants grow faster
  • Plants grow larger
  • Less soil based disease
  • No chemicals needed
  • Year round harvest with greenhouse or greenhouse type cover for grow beds
  • Organic
  • No chemicals Needed
  • Have fresh fish on hand at all times
II. Earth Friendly

  • Uses less water than other methods of aquaculture or hydroponics
  • No waste water
  • No chemicals
  • The system is almost self contained only needing fish food and an occasional replenishment of used and evaporated water
  • Can be made to be 100% sustainable with the addition of solar panels and rainwater storage
  • Growing your own food will help decrease the need for mass food production
  • Less trips to the grocery store
 Once the system has cycled and matured there is very little you need to do. The water will remain balanced and maintenance is minimal compared to a swimming pool.
