ASAGI KOI, WHERE IT ALL BEGAN

By: Mike Gannon | Posted On: January 17th, 2014 | No Comments on ASAGI KOI, WHERE IT ALL BEGAN

    In today’s world of competitive koi shows the Asagi koi variety is still ranking in the champion categories on a regular basis, across a wide spectrum of koi shows around the world. The Asagi koi variety even has very strong showings in the world class All Japan Koi Show.

In many neighborhoods one can see all sorts of seasonal displays pop up on front lawns; often times a hay bale with some cornstalks or other seasonal items. This type of display is great to extend to the pond. Sure the aquatic plants have stopped growing so how can you add visual interest to the pond? Add a seasonal display by using some nice large pumpkins, gourds, a hay bale. When Halloween rolls around try some carved, lighted jack-o-lanterns, and other spooky seasonal items, a scary skeleton pond side is great fun for the kids. For Thanksgiving and Christmas time add some lighting, a few strands of mini lights around a pond can really add quite a bit of dimension and beauty to the setting or put a banner of your favorite football team by the pond!
