garden stream and pond designed by Mobile Joe's Landscaping

Are you considering adding a koi pond to your backyard? Koi ponds can offer a unique oasis and beautiful feature to your outdoor space. While Koi fish look like overgrown goldfish, their habitat needs are very different. In fact, Koi pond installation and maintenance can be quite complex. Understanding the process and what it takes to create a healthy home for your Koi fish can help you appreciate why hiring a professional is best.

Koi pond installation is not as simple as digging a big hole in your backyard, filling it with water and dumping your fish inside. There are many factors to consider and careful techniques to follow if you want to protect your Koi fish investment (which isn’t cheap).

First, the location of your koi pond is critical. Not only do you need enough depth to handle three feet of digging without hitting an underground infrastructure, but your soil must also be sustainable enough to support the weight of the pond. Ideally, your koi pond should be in a partially shaded area and get approximately four hours of sunlight each day.

The pond will be lined with a special thick rubber liner. It needs a pump to properly filter koi fish waste and other unwanted particles from the water. Speaking of water, it needs to be have optimal pH, nitrate and ammonia levels to support healthy fish. There is also a specific manner in which you’ll want to introduce your new koi fish to the pond to reduce trauma. Depending on the extremity of the temperatures outside, you may have to adjust your feeding patterns during the winter or even install a water heater to prevent freezing.

After your koi pond installation process, you’ll be faced with the biggest responsibility of all – maintaining your koi pond. This involve feeding your fish as well as regular monitoring of filtration, pH and aeration of the pond.

Do you still want a koi pond but not sure you are up for the job of installing it by yourself? Call Mobile Joe’s Landscaping. We proudly offer Koi Pond Design and Installation to the residents of the greater Atlanta area.

Joe Archer has built a great family business by treating his customer very well. They do a great job, are consistent, are reliable and are friendly. When we've had big family events, Joe takes as much pride in how our yard will look as we do...came by twice a week before a wedding to make sure things looked tops. Uses reel mowers, not rotary, to have the most even look. Use Mobile Joe!!!!

Michael DePadro

I have known Joe for over 10 years. In the past 10 years Joe has completed 3 large landscaping projects for us. My wife and I would never consider using anyone else as Joe does excellent work is dependable and is easily reached if you need to call him for anything. We can highly recommend Joe for any landscape design project or for excellent on going lawn care. Joe's team uses reel mowers so your lawn looks like a golf course fairway when his team is taking care of your lawn maintenance. I have recommended Joe to several friends who have used Joe for small landscape projects and for landscape projects that went into the six figure range. Everyone that I have referred to Joe has been very pleased with his work so give him a call if you are looking for a dependable landscaper.

I was interviewing and getting proposals from landscaping companies for a full front yard renovation at my home. Joe by far seemed the most knowledgeable and experienced of the companies I spoke with - and the friendliest. He laid out different options to meet my budget. His prices were great as well. His team did a great job, showed up on time, and cleaned up where you could not even tell they were there - other than a complete beatiful new front yard landscape with stone walls, new plantings, grass, and trees. Looks awesome! Thanks Mobile Joe!

Mark French

Mobile Joe's Landscaping has taken care of all my landscaping needs for many years - and I highly recommend Joe and his team! Mobile Joe's has designed and implemented various landscape install projects as well as performed all the maintenance at each of the three homes I've owned in north Fulton beginning in the early 1990s. I have no doubt that Joe's expertise in both hardscape and softscape has added significant value to my properties and I'm extremely appreciative for all the attention to detail and great execution that Mobile Joe's Landscaping is known for here in the Roswell / Alpharetta area. These guys truly care about meeting and exceeding customer expectation!
