A backyard pond creates a sub-climate, which can help cool down the nearby surrounding area and provides the perfect habitat for aquatic plants. The healthiest backyard pond will closely resemble a natural pond, with plenty of native plants, some debris settling on the bottom, and perhaps a log or branch floating on the surface. A pond with these ingredients will balance itself, and algal growth will be seasonal and minimal.
