Thai Garden Design were contacted to go and check on an existing koi pond in Pranburi, near Hua Hin, that had been constructed by another koi pond contractor.
The owner was unhappy about the level of algae in the water, as the filtration system used by the previous company was clearly not working. (view the video of the improved pond).
There were several major problems. The shape of the pond was awkward, and there were large pockets of 'still' water which could not circulate well. The team knocked out one side of the pond to make it a more circular shape, and therefore improving the circulation around the main body of water. They also installed an appropriately sized, four-chambered concrete filter (housed underneath a wooden deck) on one side, with UV lights, new pumps, and appropriate filter medium.
The new pumps greatly improved the circulation of the pond, helping to oxygenate the water.
The waterfall, which was badly installed, was re-designed by the team, who re positioned the existing rocks and added additional ones. The team also re-casted black concrete over the inside of the pond, and added new planting and rocks around the side to make a more natural looking feature.
The owner was very happy that his newly designed pond, which had been a constant source of frustration. The waterfall and pond are now a much better looking, functional garden feature.
