How To Find the Best Location for the Pond
Before you can build the perfect outdoor waterfall or garden pond in Nassau County, you need to determine where to add your pond. First, consider where you have the most space. Many people choose to place the pond in their backyard, while others build a pond in their front yard. Where do you feel the most relaxed? And where do you have some privacy? A private area is perfect if you want to sit on the edges of the pond and let the world around you disappear.
Do you already have a focal point in your Long Beach, NY yard, such as a gazebo? Consider placing your pond next to it. That way, you can sit in the shelter of the gazebo and listen to the water moving inside the pond.
Pond With Lights
If you want to sit outside around the sides of the pond at night, consider adding lights to your pond. These lights are more than your typical candles or lanterns; you can illuminate the pond water and watch the smaller waterfall do its work. What’s more relaxing than a water show as you listen to the crickets chirp?
Stone Wall Surrounding the Pond
While many people opt for a more modern design for their Nassau County home pond, nothing beats a classic stone wall surrounding the pond. The best part is you can choose any flat stone you want to design the wall. Ensure you choose flexible liners for your pond so that it stays together and looks beautiful for years to come.
Koi Fish Pond
Do you love to fish? Then adding a koi fish backyard pond to your home may be the perfect option for you! Koi fish are easy to maintain as long as you keep the pond clean and don’t overfeed them. You can also create a goldfish pond if koi fish is too difficult for you.
With a pond full of fish, you can receive even more relaxation as you watch them swim through the water. Many people find watching fish therapeutic, so take advantage of this with a koi pond.
A Pond With Landscape
Finally, you can create a pond with some landscape around it. Do you already have a garden designed for you? If so, consider placing a backyard pond or waterfall around it. Nothing can accentuate beautiful flowers and plants quite like a glorious home pond.
The best part of building a pond is you can work with what you already have. When you include a pond or waterfall, you’ll notice that your backyard finally looks complete.

Some information about Long Beach, NY
Long Beach is a city in Nassau County, in New York, United States. It takes up a central section of the Long Beach Barrier Island, which is the westernmost of the outer barrier islands off Long Island’s South Shore. As of the 2010 United States census, the city population was 33,275, and 33,454 in 2019. It was incorporated in 1922, and is nicknamed ‘The City By the Sea’. The Long Beach Barrier Island is surrounded by Reynolds Channel to the north, east and west, and the Atlantic Ocean to the south.
The city of Long Beach’s first inhabitants were the Algonquian-speaking Lenape, who sold the area to English colonists in 1643. From that time, while the barrier island was used by baymen and farmers for fishing and harvesting salt hay, no one lived there year-round for more than two centuries. The bark Mexico, carrying Irish immigrants to New York, ran ashore on New Year’s Day.
Austin Corbin, a builder from Brooklyn, was the first to attempt to develop the island as a resort. He formed a partnership with the Long Island Rail Road (LIRR) to finance the New York and Long Beach Railroad Co., which laid track from Lynbrook to Long Beach in 1880. That same year, Corbin opened Long Beach Hotel, a row of 27 cottages along a 1,100-foot (340 m) strip of beach, which he claimed was the world’s largest hotel. In its first season, the railroad brought 300,000 visitors to Long Island. By the next spring, tracks had been laid the length of the island, but they were removed in 1894 after repeated washouts from winter storms.

In 1906, William H. Reynolds, a 39-year-old real estate developer and former state senator, became involved in the area. Reynolds had already developed four Brooklyn neighborhoods (Bedford–Stuyvesant, Borough Park, Bensonhurst, and South Brownsville), as well as Coney Island’s Dreamland, the world’s largest amusement park at the time. Reynolds also owned a theatre and produced plays.
