Most people would agree that few things add more to an attractive landscape than a beautiful, well built koi pond. The growing popularity of koi ponds today is due to the fact that they add not just beauty to a setting, but also a sense of serenity. The sight of brightly coloured koi, gracefully swimming in a clear body of water, coupled with the soothing sound of a gentle waterfall is hard to forget.
The problem is that most people do not realize that building a successful koi pond is much more complicated than they think. Many people start out thinking that to build a koi pond all they need to do is provide a hole in the ground that will hold water for the koi to live in. The reality is that unless the koi pond is well thought out and properly designed, the whole experience can be a real disappointment.
Today there is a serious problem when it comes to the correct koi pond design. The problem lies in the fact that very few people can agree on what constitutes proper koi pond design. Most people who decide to build a koi pond start out very excited, and are determined to build it right the first time. Then the problem starts. When they start researching and talking to their friends about koi pond design, they soon get overwhelmed with conflicting information.
Much of the advice comes from individuals who, although well meaning, have limited experience in regards to koi pond design. They may have built a pond that turned out to be very successful, but unless you build a koi pond exactly the same size and shape, what worked for them may not work for you.

A successful koi pond needs to provide healthy crystal clear water. So much of the enjoyment of a koi pond is being able to clearly see the beauty of the koi. A pond that is not crystal clear will rob you of this feature.
A successful koi pond needs to provide a safe environment for the koi. Poorly designed koi ponds can make it easy for predators to injure or kill your koi. A properly designed koi pond will not require a net to protect the koi.
A successful koi pond needs to be as easy as possible to maintain. Often times the maintenance issue is not even considered until after the pond is built. A poorly designed koi pond can be so hard to maintain that it can ruin your whole koi keeping experience. On the other hand, a well designed and built koi pond can be amazingly easy and enjoyable to maintain. You can build a 10,000 litre koi pond that requires less than 5 minutes a week to maintain and you can do so without getting dirty.
