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 Manhasset, 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 Manhasset, NY
Manhasset is a hamlet and census-designated place (CDP) in Nassau County, on the North Shore of Long Island, in New York, United States. The population was 8,080 at the 2010 census.
The Matinecock had a village on Manhasset Bay. These Native Americans called the area Sint Sink, meaning ‘place of small stones’. They made wampum from oyster shells. In 1623, the area was claimed by the Dutch West India Company and they began forcing English settlers to leave in 1640. A 1643 land purchase made it possible for English settlers to return to Cow Neck (the peninsula where present-day Port Washington, Manhasset, and surrounding villages are located.).
Manhasset Bay was previously known as Schout’s Bay (a schout being roughly the Dutch equivalent of a sheriff), Martin Garretson’s Bay (Martin Garretson was the Schout at one point), and later Cow Bay or Cow Harbor. Cow Neck was so called because it offered good grazing land. By 1659, there were over 300 cows and 5 mi (8 km) fence separating Cow Neck from the areas south of it. The settlers came to an agreement that each of them could have one cow on the neck for each section of fence the individual had constructed. The area was more formally divided among the settlers when the fence was removed in 1677. Manhasset took on the name Little Cow Neck, Port Washington was known as Upper Cow Neck.
During the American Revolution, Little Cow Neck suffered at the hands of the British. Many structures and properties, such as the 1719 Quaker Meeting House were burned, seized or damaged. The Town of North Hempstead separated from the Town of Hempstead in 1784 because the South, inhabited mainly by Church of England people, was loyal to the king. The Northern communities and villages, dominated by Yankee Congregationalists supported independence.
