Pond and Waterfall Construction
Waterfall construction is our specialty. It is a form of art that we are very passionate about. A beautiful waterfall is made by selecting and placing the ideal pieces of natural stone. Master waterfall builders know how to select and place beautiful natural stone to achieve a very natural look and sound, that recreates natures most beautiful masterpieces.
Pond construction is another art form that we specialize in and take great pride in creating beautiful, low maintenance Koi ponds and water gardens.
We are very dedicated to creating water features that will enhance your property and transform it into a living work of art.
Spring and fall pond cleaning is an important step to keeping a well balanced and healthy, low maintenance pond.
Decomposing organic matter on the bottom can spell disaster for ponds and pond aquatic life. A clean and balanced pond with proper functioning filtration is key to enjoying your pond all season long.
By taking proactive steps in the spring and fall, you can implement a preventative maintenance strategy that keeps your pond looking amazing.
Call us today to set up a onetime clean out, or a routine cleaning schedule to keep your pond worry free and looking like a wetland oasis.
We have a lot of experience servicing ponds and repairing leaks. If you have a leaky pond, or out dated parts, we can repair it and bring the pond back to its former glory. We have some very practical and efficient trouble shooting methods that are accurate and effective ways to locate leaks. We have the right tools, products and experience to completely repair or retrofit your pond.
Most ponds leak around the waterfall area, which is an area that is prone to shifting rocks that move the liner or divert water flow. Pond leaks don't have to be an expensive repair. We have the experience and knowledge to troubleshoot and locate leaks quickly.
Pondless WaterfallPondless waterfalls are great water features that require little maintenance and give you that relaxing waterfall and flowing stream sound. They can fit into small spaces or be absolutley huge with 50 foot long streams and 5 foot tall waterfalls or bigger!

CREATE BIODEVERSITY IN YOUR YARD
Get back in touch with nature
and enjoy the Pond Lifestyle
What is Biodiversity?
1. the variety of life in the world or in a particular habitat or ecosystem.
- "I think that getting in touch with nature is the most important aspect of our modern technological lives. By adding a pond or water feature, we can greatly improve and enrich our surroundings and increase biodiversity in our communities, while enjoying a beautiful, living, work of natural art." - Matthew Lacasse - Owner, Rock Water Plant
Matthew Lacasse, Rock Water Plant's founder, believes that ponds and waterscapes can transform a space into a living work of art that enriches our lives, brings one closer to nature, and most importantly, allows us to increase biodiversity in your area, reducing our negative impact on the environment.
-Biodiversity encompasses all living species on Earth and their relationships to each other. This includes the differences in genes, species and ecosystems. Having many different living things allows Nature to recover from change. If too much biodiversity is lost, there is a problem... - from biodivcanada.ca
Ponds attract wildlife, birds, and insects, which help pollinate flowers and trees. Building a pond, pondless waterfall, bog garden or even a small water feature, is a way to provide a safe refuge for various animal and insect species that are essential in maintaining healthy ecosystems in our surroundings. Native birds and insects get forced out of our urban areas all the time due to construction. Ponds and water gardens can inspire and teach young minds and are a valuable educational resource that inspires and boosts creativity.
Adding a beautiful oasis in your yard will allow you to live a whole new lifestyle, the pond lifestyle. I will never forget the first time my little girl saw a beautiful koi pond at a friends place. I couldn't pull her away from it. She was drawn to it and sat there by the edge playing in the water with a beaming smile on her face. Now she has her own fish and takes care of mine! By living the pond lifestyle you can enjoy your property in many new ways and relax in the sanctuary you helped build.
There is also a mystical and spiritual element to ponds and waterfalls. We can discover so many important and meaningful things when we sit and reflect by a pond or waterfall. When we are immersing ourselves in nature, the benefits can be unlimited.
