There are a variety of different ponds and water features we create to enrich the design of the landscape. Features such as backyard ponds, garden ponds, koi ponds, fountains, garden pools, disappearing waterfalls, streams and even farm ponds add a sense of elegance that enhances the design of many projects.

When designing water features for projects, we take into consideration your wants, desires, lifestyle and your existing landscape. For this reason, no two ponds are ever alike. We pride ourselves on being unique. This uniqueness is best displayed by simply observing the supreme quality of our pond designs as opposed to the cookie cutter ponds sold at certain "big box" retailers. They create basic designs that everyone has while, we create a pond specially designed for you.

Furthermore, we avoid building ponds with shelves. Shelves take away much needed water space. For example, if a client decides to place koi in the pond, the fish will grow big and require extra space that the shelves unnecessarily occupy.

Another principle we stand by is to never place stones around the edge of the fixture, creating a necklace-like look. This is because we value creating a more natural theme. Our technique is quite unique and nobody else in the area does it. We create a three-dimensional zigzag, with boulders going in and out, up and down, alternating from big to small, and rough to smooth. Next, we raise some of the rocks which, creates a vertical zigzag, with rock arrangements varying in elevation. Also, to create a size contrast, we replace some of the smaller rocks with bigger ones. To get enough room to hold large pieces, we sometimes even build larger pools. This is just another way we strive to make the fixture appear more naturalistic and authentic.

Another important part of our water fixture process is framing the outside of the pond. This raises the water level and will keep runoff from entering the pond. We also use bottom drains in our designs which, allows uneaten food, fish waste, and other debris that falls to the bottom of the pond to go to the filter to taken out. On larger sized ponds we even install pond jets to keep all the water moving so there are no dead spots. Fish need the water to be constantly moving. This makes the fish happy and promotes good health.

We also specialize in creating elaborate outdoor kitchens and fireplaces. Adding an outdoor living area to your home can give your family and friends a great place to enjoy times together. Outdoor kitchens can keep the heat of summer cooking out of the house, while providing a relaxing environment to relieve the stress of the day. Outdoor fireplaces provide warmth during cool evenings, while giving a great gathering place that adds a dramatic statement to your outdoor living area. Pergolas can be used to offer shade from the summer sun while offering interesting visual effects to your home. Outdoor living areas not only increase the value of your home, but also provide the difference that separates your home from others.
