Our Services...

Pre-construction Consulting

If you are planning a pond, be sure to *PLAN* before you move your first shovelful of dirt.

There are many considerations to creating a pond besides the cost of materials. If it is planned correctly up front, your pond will give you all the enjoyment you anticipate and save you the heartache of unplanned surprises.

Our consultation comes with a written report, and personal question and answer time. We help you anticipate such issues as:

* What effect will the sun have and how to site your pond to manage the sun for your benefit?
* What do you do about fall leaves?
* Is your filter and pump the right size?
* What will your maintenance schedule look like?
* What can you do to minimize maintenance costs?
* What can you do to manage critter damage?

If you are planning to have a contractor, we can work with them to make sure you get that perfect pond. Once your pond is built, we can help you understand the unique personality of a new pond and what to anticipate.

Green Water Consulting

Do you have the green water blues? There is a remedy for that.

Our consultation comes with a written report, and up to two hours of personal question and answer time. We help you understand and remedy such issues as:

* Why is your water green and what can you do about it?
* What maintenance is effective and how often should you clean?
* How much water do you really have and why you should know that?
* Could I have a leak and how do I fix it?
