Koi College - Perfect Koi Pond
Placement and Shape
The placement of the pond will play a very important part in your enjoyment, health of your koi, and ease of maintenance. The Koi pond should occupy your best viewing area near the home and away from trees if possible, as some of there leaves are poisons to Koi.
The shape of the visible pond should have no dead spots for water circulation, “don’t get to creative here”. A rectangle gets the biggest bang for the buck, you can round the corners.
