Why Work with So-Cal Ponds?

We believe that education is the key to a successful project. Unfortunately, many homeowners fall victim to "contractors" who arrive in their flashy trucks, promise the moon, quote a seemingly reasonable price, and walk away with a signed contract. What homeowners don’t realize is that these poorly constructed ponds can end up costing them thousands of dollars extra each year.

Why, you ask? Because these ponds may require costly annual draining and cleaning, frequent replacement of filter media, or inefficient equipment that either needs replacement within 5-10 years or is too expensive to run continuously.

At So-Cal Ponds, our goal is to provide you with comprehensive information from the moment you contact us. We take the time to explain our construction methods and goals for your pond, ensuring you understand how we create durable and efficient water features. Scheduling a design consultation with our team will be a valuable investment, helping you avoid the pitfalls of subpar pond construction.

Pond Construction: Then and Now

For years, ponds were constructed primarily with cement and a few large boulders, relying on a mainline water source to serve as the waterfall. This approach was suitable for pre-1980 ponds. However, today's ponds are generally made using a rubber EPDM liner, covered with stone and gravel. This gives them the appearance of a water garden, rather than a traditional koi pond—an accurate assessment, reflecting a shift towards a more natural and integrated design.

Blending Natural Aesthetics with Koi Ponds

Let's face it, homeowners in So-Cal desire the natural look of a stream or mountain pond—something reminiscent of what they might encounter on a weekend hike. At the same time, they seek the serenity brought by beautiful koi fish in their pond.

This need has led to a blend of koi ponds and water gardens. Using a combination of techniques and construction methods, we build stunning water features that integrate both styles seamlessly, allowing everything to flow harmoniously.

Designing Natural and Sustainable Ponds

Over the past 20 years, we've met with thousands of homeowners, and most share the same vision: a pond that looks natural, blends seamlessly with the surrounding landscape, supports both plants and aquatic life, and is easy to maintain.

Thanks to our extensive experience and collaboration with dozens of pond contractors across the country, So-Cal Ponds designs, constructs, and maintains water features that fulfill all these requests while avoiding constant financial drains. Our expertise allows us to create sustainable, beautiful ponds and water gardens that provide lasting enjoyment for homeowners and aquatic life alike.
