Pond Design Consultation with So-Cal Ponds
So you’re thinking of having a koi pond, water garden or other water feature installed? Well you are on the right page and one step closer to having your dream pond or landscape become a reality. We are happy to give you a free, over the phone estimate for your koi pond.
All we need are the dimensions and style and we can provide you with a “ball park” quote for your investment.
If you would like we can schedule an appointment to have one of our designer/builders (not a salesperson) meet with you at your home to discuss, step-by-step, the layout and build process. We will survey your area and ask you a series of questions to make sure we build the pond/landscape that you desire. Our on-site fees are very reasonable and if you choose to have So-Cal Ponds Inc. professionally install your pond or landscape your on site fee will be credited towards your contracted price.
When a designer comes to discuss the pond design and construction process we will go over the different types of filtration systems, skimmers, pumps, plants and aquatic life. At this time you will be presented the Helix Design Guide. Having a designer come out and consult with you will be money well spent and could be the difference between getting the pond you envisioned or a big disappointment. Keep in mind we offer many different styles of water features including koi ponds, water gardens, rock fountains, disappearing ponds which come in all shapes and sizes. A simple pond consultation could literally save you thousands of dollars later on down the road. A free consultation or a cheap contract price doesn’t always mean a quality pond or landscape built by an experienced crew.
A good portion of our past work has been from frustrated homeowners whose ponds needed to be completely rebuilt or retrofitted. These ponds were usually built improperly by gardeners, pool builders or landscape contractors and may be lacking one or more important components such as proper life support/filtration, aeration, circulation or depth. If your pond is slightly older and not built by a professional pond contractor chances are your pond has an energy-consuming pool style pump. A pool pump is not designed to run 24/7 and the pump alone can bump your monthly electrical usage into a higher tier which will cause your monthly electric bill to substantially increase.
We love what we do and always try to go above and beyond to make each individual project unique. Please keep in mind that designing and constructing a water feature or landscape is no simple task. Depending on the scope of the overall project there could be thousands of dollars in materials and equipment alone. Sure, a pond can be installed on a tight budget but we can custom tailor your needs with our construction philosophy which involves using quality products and materials that will stand up to Mother Nature and Father Time. There is no taking short cuts. We set high standards for ourselves and have no problem refusing a project if the highest quality materials are not to be used.
