Fish - The Perfect Pet

Landscaping - Complete Your Paradise

No pond is complete without an adjacent deck, stone patio or gazebo. Because moving water encompasses all senses, your water feature should be the focal point of your yard. Perennial plantings, ornamental grasses and even ground cover help naturalize the water's edge. Often a deck or patio can be incorporated for a more up close and personal appreciation of your water feature. You can always do your project in stages - adding plants and a pation in upcoming seasons.

Tranquility - Right in Your Own Yard

Relax alongside a water garden and experience a tranquil that transcends today's stressful world. Recouperate from your hectic day with free moments, listening to the soothing sound of a waterfall. Join the many satisfied homeowners who readily profess adding a water feature to their landscape was the best investment they've ever made.

What is the cost?

A well designed water feature includes:

  • mechanical and biological filteration
  • pump and plumbing
  • 45 mil EPDM liner and underlayment
  • rock work
  • underwater fiber optic or conventional low voltage lighting
  • a berm
  • waterfalls

What size is best?

Location and size are the two most important decisions you'll make about your water feature. By some estimates, 90 percent of the original water gardens sold are replaced later with larger ones. An enthusiastic pond hobbyist always finds new plants or interesting fish to add to his investment. As a general rule, a 180 square-foot or 11' 16' pond is a good "standard" size water feature. Trace your prospective pond out on the ground with a garden hose, to help you visualize what the finished size will be.
