Time for a Bucks County Pond Renovation!!  Now that summer is officially here, it’s time to start thinking about what you might want to do to change and improve about your pond.  And if you’re still dreaming of your first pond, this too is a great time to plan for that!

Many people view ponds simply as an addition to your house – when you build it you are done. While that is true that a pond is indeed another room to your house, you’re never really done with this addition! In reality, it’s actually more like a living thing that is always evolving, so don’t be afraid to add on and change it as often as you want!

Whether your Bucks County Pond Renovation is to simply move a couple rocks, forcing the water to fall in a completely different direction, or maybe you’ll go all out and add a 50-foot stream, a bog filter, or a bubbling urn in another part of your yard, the possibilities for growing your water feature are almost infinite.

Your Dream Pond

Right now – when your thoughts, ideas, and mental plans for your dream garden and pond are still fresh in your mind – is the time to get them on paper. Dreaming is always the first step to planning your Bucks County Pond Renovation.  In your mind, what would be the perfect backyard paradise? Here are some questions to ask yourself as you search for your perfect pond makeover.

  • What do you enjoy most about water gardening – the plants, fish, frogs, turtles, birds, or terrestrial landscaping? Build your dream pond with that as your emphasis.
  • What places have you visited that look and feel “perfect” to you? A stream in the mountains?  A spring in the woods?  Recreate aspects of these places on a smaller scale.
  • Where do you spend most of your time when you’re at home?  Will you spend more time outside or inside?  Plan with that in mind.
  • What would make your yard a “paradise?”
  • Would you like to be able to swim with your fish in a natural swimming pond?
  • What do you like (or dislike) about your existing pond?
  • Do you like the tropics? Find some rare plants and bring them into your own backyard.

Your Own Paradise

Hopefully you’re well on your way to dreaming about creating or enhancing your own personal paradise and your Bucks County Pond Renovation. The possibilities are limitless and you can always grow and expand with each addition you make.  Now’s the time to start your wheels turning.

What does the average pond cost?

What does the average pond cost?

The average pond “shopper” may see this as a simple question, one that any landscaping expert could tell off the top of his or her head. In reality, a true expert will take this question and ask the shopper for a definition of “average.”

What does an average pond look like to you?

Sure, technically and mathematically, average equates to the sum of numbers divided by the amount of numbers, but an expert will ask the buyer to punch in those digits. The concept of “average” is difficult to define when playing with custom designed products. When it comes to ponds, each is individually crafted to fit the new environment, and as a buyer, you should keep in mind that the average numbers will fluctuate to your particular pond. But really– you might be asking– what does the average pond cost?

Common costs

For the sake of giving a ballpark number, we will implement the most commonly built ponds in our particular market, which would mean a pond about 10’ x 15’ in size. Given these numbers, the “average” will begin around $8,500 but commonly rounds up to about $12,000-$17,000. Now this range depends on how many custom features the pond aspires to have. A pond alone may be around $8,500 (at that particular size), but add-ons that many people envision in a pond, such as plants, lights, waterfalls, fish, etc., will add to the base price.

Customize-able features

Why would the final price tag of a pond be vastly different than the base model? Ponds, like cars, are very customizable. Certain people only want the car with roll up windows and an AM/FM radio. While others want the leather seats with a navigation system and an engine push start button. So when you ask for a basic pond, it doesn’t  include the add-ons that most people like in a pond. This will include fish, plants, lights, etc.  This can change the definition of what the average pond costs.

What can we do for you?

Before getting attached to these numbers, if you’re considering adding a water feature to your home, give us a call and let’s begin at a drawing board. We can provide you with details, options for your particular design, and digits that are worth contemplating. Who needs average when you can have it personalized?
