Home / Can you describe the importance of making a created pond aesthetically fit into its surroundings?

A natural pond or creek should look part of the environment it’s added to otherwise its always going to strike a wrong chord in the viewer. There are a number of principles such as the size relative to the landscape, shape, how the streams or waterfalls are constructed. Every project is different. A waterfall should look like it starts naturally and not as the highest point in the landscape – you never find a waterfall as the highest point in a landscape, water wears away rock and soil and so it is mostly always framed by higher ground on either side or by plantings etc.
