Traditional Japanese style ponds are lovely and popular for a reason, but if you are looking for a style a little more non-traditional, we have a couple of ideas for you.

Not every koi pond needs to be covered in foliage to maintain the essence of the outdoors. The clear water, green tint, and wide open space gives this pond a feel of a lake.

The above image is just one of many bridge over pond ponds. Traditionally, a koi pond is placed in the back, side, or center of a yard, with plenty of space to maneuver around or in front of. When looking for images of ponds, increasingly there are ponds you can incorporate into any space! So long as you do mind and it is safe walking over water.

This is a fun pond because it takes the traditional art of the pond and converts the style into a traditional home, creating a cool art house design. The enclosed area mixed with the wooden panels adds an element of classic, timeless look.
