Every now and then a pond is poorly constructed that offers nothing of its original intentions, such as relaxation, enjoyment and serenity. One of our Helix Contractors had the misfortune of being called out to evaluate this particular pond. He was called out to offer a solution to repairing this pond, however it was so poorly constructed in so many different ways there was nothing that could be to offer a fix. The entire project is a total loss and needs to be removed, not only that but the leaky pond has caused significant damaged to the surrounding area. He was so amazed at what he found that he had to make a series of videos to add to his “Ponds Gone Wrong” series on YouTube.
Please, when considering hiring a contractor to design and build a pond make sure they are a POND CONTRACTOR and not a “contractor” that builds ponds. The sad thing about this situation was that this was built by a pond contractor. Obviously this contractor had not idea or simply didn’t care what they were doing.
