Pond maintenance in the Spring

Pond Maintenance

It is extremely important whether you have a koi pond, pondless waterfall, or fountain to make sure that you are keeping the water feature well maintained. Without proper maintenance things can break, get clogged, plants can grow out of control and more. We are here to help you avoid problems before they happen so you can go on enjoying your backyard oasis problem free. We have different maintenance packages depending on the frequency of your visits.

Spring & Fall Mailing List

For some signing up for out Spring and Fall mailers is enough. Doing this puts you on a list to receive two mailings one in the spring to notify you the opportunity to drain and clean your pond and the other is in the Fall notifying you the option to clean your bio filters and net the pond. This is a great option for people who like to do most of the smaller pond maintenance by themselves between visits. By signing up for the mailer there is no commitment on having to do either Fall or Spring service they are just reminders.

Quarterly VIP Members

Our Quarterly Service starts at $1,575 a year and is a great choice for most people.The Quarterly contract includes 4 visits a year starting in January and ending in October. People love this option is because it includes a complete drain and clean in the spring visit and a netting of the pond during the Fall visit (net may be purchased from us then re-used following year). This is a great option that is in-between monthly and bi-annual pond maintenance.

Koi Pond Installation
Pond Installation

A pond installation can be challenging, rocks may look spectacular in one location and unnatural in another!

The typical pond size we build is an 8×11′ pond with a 6′ stream. These are great starter ponds and includes two filters, your skimmer and bio-falls, pump, aquatic plants and everything else you need for a functioning eco-system. We also do a lot of custom work with Koi ponds that are all shapes and sizes. If you are interested in your own koi pond give us a call and leave a message at 704-400-6864! Watch this awesome time lapse of one of us rebuilding an old koi pond! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gfLfTWFhNdM




Pondless Waterfall Installation

Pondless waterfalls are a low maintenance alternative to ponds.

For people who love the sights and sounds of water running over rock and want very low maintenance a pondless waterfall might be the best choice! A pondless waterfall is a stream that instead of spilling into a body of water or pond spills into an underground reservoir. These water features are beautiful and are a lot less maintenance then having a pond. To watch the construction process on a pondless waterfall check out our video! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wZJY7mGe_1E


Fountain installation

Basalt Columns

Decorative fountains can be a more affordable way for some to get into the water gardening lifestyle. We install and maintain many different types of fountains, urns, and spillway bowls. They look great standing alone, lit up at night, or sometimes we even add them to existing ponds or streams! One of the greatest benefits of decorative fountains other then the low cost is that they can fit in small spaces. This makes fountains perfect for tiny gardens, patios, and small outdoor living spaces!





From the do-it-yourselfer to the large scale landscape contractor, we offer a full range of consulting services. Let our education and knowledge work for you. Our consulting rate is $250/hr with a minimum of two hours per visit.


No matter what problem you have with your pond, we have the most educated staff in the industry to solve your problems. If you need a new pump, have a leak, or just want an evaluation, call to make an appointment! Service calls start at $125.
