California Licensed Landscape Construction Contractor

So-Cal Ponds, Inc. serves the foothill areas of Los Angeles & has been in the Landscape, Water Garden, & Koi Pond business for over 24 years

We are a California Licensed landscape construction contractor based in Tujunga, CA, who specializes in the design, construction, and maintenance of custom koi ponds, water gardens, and "pond-less" features. All of our water features are designed to be low maintenance, environmentally friendly, and a destination both you and the local wildlife desire.

So-Cal Ponds has been in the Pond & Landscape industry for over 24 years. Underlying principles of design that have long influenced our philosophy include designing with an environmental ethic, designing for longevity, and creating regenerative landscapes. Through the use of native and adapted plant material and durable materials for the framework of the place, we are able to create healthy, sustainable landscapes that provide the environment for the experiences we set out to achieve.

We work with an advanced network of top-notch landscape designers, water feature contractors, and pond enthusiasts to keep our skills and education to the highest standards in order to produce the perfect product for our clients. We provide consultations for both water features and landscape projects. We have a network of designers with different specialties sure to meet your needs.

Why Work with Us?


We believe education is key to a successful project. We see it way too often where a "contractor" will show up in their fancy truck, talk a big game, throw out a reasonable price, and walk away with a signed contract. What the homeowner doesn't know is that the pond that the "contractor" is going to build will cost them $ 1,000's extra per year. Yes, you read that right, thousands of dollars extra per year. Why do you ask? Because that pond may need a costly full draining and cleaning every year, or have the filter media replaced every year. But the one we see all the time is cheap equipment (cheaply made and cheap cost) installed which either will need to be replaced in 5-10 years or is not cost-effective to run on a 24/7 basis.

From the moment you contact our office, our goal is to provide you with as much information as we can to help you understand our construction methods and goals for your pond. Scheduling a design consultation will be money well spent.

So Cal Ponds

For years ponds were generally constructed of cement and a few large boulders. We've seen a simple water source, the mainline act as the waterfalls main source of water. This was great… if your pond is pre-1980. Today most ponds are usually made from a rubber EPDM liner and covered with stone and gravel. Some may say this is a water garden and not a traditional koi pond; they would be correct.

Advancing Technology

So Cal Ponds

Let's face it, homeowners in So-Cal want the natural look of a stream or mountain pond, something they might see not too far away from their home on a weekend hike, and of course, they want the serenity of beautiful koi fish in their pond. This creates a blending of koi ponds and water gardens. Using multiple methods and construction techniques, we can build a beautiful water feature that allows everything to flow as it should.

Natural Beauty

So Cal Ponds

A majority of the thousands of homeowners we have met with over the 24 years we've been in business all seem to want the same outcome… A pond that looks natural blends in with the surrounding landscape, will support both plants and aquatic life, and be easy to maintain. With our years of experience and collaboration with dozens of pond contractors throughout the country, we are able to design, construct and maintain a water feature that meets all of the homeowner's requests without constantly draining their finances.
