I worked on my first pond installation over 15 years ago with a friend. I found out that I have a passion for incorporating water features into my designs, and building them standalone as their own projects. Some people want a large-scale pond that’s deep and wide, while others want a small water feature that they can have in a corner of their yard. Either way, I can design a pond that’s uniquely yours.
