Early fall is the time to give fish a little extra food before their winter hibernation. This helps increase their metabolism before they enter hibernation. Once water temperature dips into the mid-50s, stop feeding fish. Pull any dying leaves on waterlilies and lift the tropical ones to store indoors in water through winter.
Rich green plants and an abundance of koi fish prove that life thrives in this fairytale garden. Thanks to broad windows against the back of the house, the owners can enjoy the view from inside as well.
This beautiful backyard feels like a sanctuary with stone walkways and koi pond. A variety of lush plants and flowers surround the stone paths and a bench is provided next to the pond for the ultimate relaxation.
The water feature was added to help create the owner's dream tropical garden. The koi pond was built by StoneFish on a former parking area on the property. Oolite and coral stone were used for the pond and surrounding areas. The sculpture and planter are client's own.
