Floating Islands are one of the greatest things to happen to water gardening in a long time. When Floating Islands made their debut in the marketplace the benefits to pond owners was immediately evident. They are self watering, relatively light weight and provide shade and cover for fish. Koi keepers love them because the Koi can no longer wreak havoc on the island plants, as they can no longer reach them. The cover plants that hang over the edges of the island offer a source of natural food as the Koi can do the pruning for you. Pond owners love them because they increase growing area in ponds that have shelves that are too narrow or not deep enough. A wonderful side affect of these islands is that they gently move and drift throughout the pond with the breeze. They can also be tethered to the edge of the pond very easily.
