In this episode, Kevin and Kristine Ellis of Dunkin Ducks compare and contrast domestic ducks and chickens.

Water features in town houses

Water features in town houses

You don’t need a lot of space to have your own pond. A fountainscape or pondless waterfall is easy to install on a patio. It’s even possible to have an above ground pond in a small space. With a little extra TLC, and the right balance, it will thrive.

Adding a water feature to your yard starts with a solid plan. Not only do you need to know where the water edge is, but you’ll need to think about landscaping, elevation, and how the pond fits into the landscape. Hiring a certified Aquascaper to create something magnificent is an option too. Epic Gardening Shop Homepage: https://growepic.co/3wQk7u9Botanical Interests Shop Homepage: https://growepic.co/4bK4DH2Book Collection Page: https://growepic.co/3wRuDkSEG Homesteading Book: https://growepic.co/3yEXbhMLearn More:  11 Aquatic Plants for Your Garden Pond

Living the Aquascape lifestyle

Living the Aquascape lifestyle

Gardens without water are incomplete, according to Greg the Pond Guy. There is no feature that will change a garden more than a pond. Not only is the sound of moving water relaxing, water features bring in wildlife and insects that support the ecosystem. It’s not just the water feature, but everything it entails.
