Thank you! This will be just over 4800 gallons, and 5' deep. I just have 1 lily that is huge enough and grows fast enough that the koi have not managed to kill it in the past several years.For a kick off, plants and koi don't mix, they'll eat any the can get at down to the roots.
A koi pool unless you have a really sophisticated filter system needs to be at least 2000 galls, to have a chance of maintaining acceptable water parameters, without a lot of flctuctuations. Koi don't like changes of anything in their environment.
In any event it needs to be at least 4ft deep.
For all things koi check this message board out. Lot's of good advice available there.
