I’m fortunate enough to make my living doing what I truly love: improving people’s outdoor living experience through beautiful water features. I love everything about this profession: family time, calming water features, beautiful ponds, interesting koi, fascinating ecosystems, and being out in nature. I could name countless reasons why I love this industry and why I believe a pond can be life-changing for you and your family.
When you’re ready to take the plunge into pond ownership, how can you be sure you’re selecting the right contractor for a detailed project like this? How can you be sure the contractor understands what you’re envisioning and that they’ll bring it to life? How much will this project cost, and can you be sure you’re getting the best price and the best quality?
I get it: there are so many questions when you first decide to install a pond. I’m here to help you answer them.
Hiring the Right Pond Contractor
I know that choosing and hiring a contractor can feel daunting. Whether you’re hiring a pond contractor or a specialist for another home improvement project, you’ll need to do your research first.
The most important thing to look for in a contractor? Make sure you’re hiring a company that is capable of doing the work correctly and has the experience and knowledge to bring your vision to life. The contractor you hire should know the ins and outs of their industry, be a leader in their field, and always work to make themselves and the team even better.
Finally, I always recommend you find a contractor who is fully insured, to protect everyone involved in the process.
I am confident that when you start researching pond contractors, you’ll find Oklahoma Ponds, LLC to be the top choice. We pride ourselves on being the experts in pond construction, cleaning, and maintenance. We want to earn your trust and provide you the best possible experience.
Hiring a Pond Contractor Over a Landscaper
We are not a general landscaping contractor. That’s an important distinction because we want to be the best at what we do: ponds and water features. Period. Your pond certainly enhances your landscape, but I don’t necessarily like to think of them as landscaping. We aren’t your everyday landscaping contractor.
When people ask me what I do for a living, I always respond “I own an outdoor living contractor, specializing in custom koi ponds and water features.” That’s because we spend all of our focus, training, and money on becoming the local experts on garden ponds and water features in Oklahoma. Every year, my team travels the country, attending several hands-on training events, seminars, and collaborative pond builds to sharpen our skills and stay at the forefront of our industry.
This way, we can focus all our efforts on building and maintaining the best ponds in Oklahoma – and your pond can be one of them!
We would not be nearly as knowledgeable and successful in the pond industry if we also built patios, pergolas, irrigation, or general landscaping. Those projects require a specific set of skills and experience. And in my opinion, that’s exactly why you should consider a pond contractor when you’re ready to build a water feature.
There is a lot to know about building koi ponds and water features, and it can take several years to master even the basics.
Pond construction is more than just rocks, waterfalls, and filters. We build entire self-contained ecosystems. We care for your koi or goldfish. We’ll install plants that not only look great but keep your pond healthy, too. And we provide regular services to keep your pond crystal clear all year long.
We take pride in our workmanship and our customer service, and we want you to take pride in your pond. That’s why we invest so much time and money honing our team’s skills.
You Get What You Pay For
I’ve been in the pond industry ever since my grandfather, one of the first professional water gardeners in Oklahoma, gave me my first job when I was 15 years old. Since then, pond construction and maintenance has been a passion of mine. I want to share that passion with you!
I learned at an early age that not all ponds and pond products are created equal. That’s why my staff and I only use the very best equipment on the market. I’ve always trusted Aquascape products, and I am proud to call myself a Master Certified Aquascape Contractor. Aquascape awards this distinction to pond contractors who meet their strict quality, experience, and professional guidelines. I’m honored to hold this distinction.
As a Master Certified Aquascape Contractor, I am required to hold adequate insurance for my business and all employees. Uninsured contractors can end up costing you far more than you might think. That’s why I recommend you ask to see proof of your contractor’s general liability and workers’ compensation insurance to make sure you’re protected.
Why Oklahoma Ponds is the Clear Choice
Don’t just take our word for it; check us out for yourself! We have decades of combined experience, we are dedicated to our craft, and we’re fully insured. We think you’ll see the difference and agree that we are the leader in the Oklahoma pond industry.
Sure, a general contractor might say they can build you a pond for less money. But the finished product will be far below our standards. And it’s going to cost you more in the long run, because improper pond construction, aeration, or filtration can cost thousands in repairs over time. Let us save you the money and hassle of costly repairs; let us build your pond right the first time.
