Koi Fish Pond : A New Beginning…

Al  and Joan T were moving and were very anxious about what to do with their fish and needed a Koi Fish Pond as soon as possible

They found us during a google search. and reached out to see if AquaReale could help.  Al is a firefighter and he saved his money for quite a while to get a bigger pond at his new house.  HE had a very small pond at his current house.  Al and his wife were concerned about their fish and the move.  We assured them we would build the new pond first and then get them safely to their new home.

Koi  Fish Pond Construction

AquaReale built Al and Joan an 11 x 16 natural eco-system pond  in three days.  We used Pennsylvania field stone boulders for a natural look and situated the pond in a prime spot in the back yard viewable from multiple windows in Al and Joan’s  pond.

We put in plant shelves as well as fish caves, hiding spots for the fish if predators are near.  The pond will soon be filled in with beautiful natural greenery

Koi Fish Pond Praise

Al and Joan were very pleased with the results. “We got so much more than expected.” said Al.  “This is the first pond i didn’t build myself and I am thrilled with the results.”    “We are so happy with how this turned out,” added Joan.  Our grandchildren are going to love this!”

We are happy to report that we delivered all of Al’s fish safely to their new home with no casualties.   The family is enjoying the new pond and their grandchildren have already found a new frog.

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?
