Having an outdoor water pond as part of your landscape is a great place to reduce stress and relax after a long day. Water fountains, streams, and other features have such beneficial stress-reducing properties that many doctors recognize their benefits around the house.
For years, pond owners have been adding beautiful fish (such as Koi and Goldfish) to their pond for the enjoyment and relaxation of observation.
In addition to fish, ponds and water gardens attract other creatures, providing a sanctuary for breeding. Frogs also gather at the pond as it provides a shelter as they reproduce in the spring and summer. Baby frogs and toads (known as tadpoles) are generally a desirable pond inhabitant for their algae-eating habits.
