Are the aesthetics of raised fish pond ideas bringing you joy? Would you like to incorporate one into your garden and (literally) bring it to life?

Then look no further! We have all the inspiration you need to create a gorgeous pond fit for a king (carp).

Raised fish pond ideas checklist

  • Pick a design that suits your garden aesthetic
  • Consider your materials (stone, wood, concrete etc.)
  • Add aquatic plants that cover approx. 60% of the water’s surface
  • De-chlorinate your water before you add any fish
  • Goldfish and koi are popular choices and suit most pond designs
  • The depth of a fish pond should be a minimum of four feet – deeper in colder climates. Consider a recirculating pump to avoid freezing water
  • Introduce fish to your pond slowly and safely to avoid shock
  • Add mesh over the top of your pond to keep out predators
  • Regularly maintain your pond and balance its water chemistry
