Ponds Done Right
Certified Aquascape Contractors have to undergo many hours of training in or to build water features correctly and to attain accreditation.
As it turns out, poorly built water features are all too familiar to us. We've seen incorrectly constructed water features over the years during the many consultations we've had with homeowners in the Waterloo Region.
If you have a water feature that is not what you envisioned or does not function properly, give us a call. We'll be able to provide you with options on how to create the paradise of your dreams.
Ecosystem ponds can be easy to understand. You'll only need to understand the components that go into an essential, functioning ecosystem. Ecosystem ponds work with Mother Nature to provide the essentials to the wildlife around it. It also provides you with an all-natural, low-maintenance paradise. It’s important to remember, however, that every part of the ecosystem puzzle must be present for a real ecosystem to be in place.
We know how to build ecosystem ponds. We know what rocks to use, how much gravel we need, what filtration is required, how many fish your pond can handle and what kind of plants to install. These are all critical components of a balanced and low-maintenance ecosystem.
Pondless® (Disappearing) Waterfalls recirculate water through a waterfall or stream without a pond. They're an excellent option for families with children or small dogs. You can add the sight and sound of running water into your landscape without safety concerns for the little ones. Pondless® Waterfalls can be tucked into any corner of the landscape and are an ideal option for adding curb appeal near the front door.
Cost can be a significant factor when considering the type of pond you want to build. In most cases, the price of a Pondless® Waterfall will be less than a pond, because there is less labour involved, as well as less rock and materials. The cost to run a Disappearing Waterfall is less than a pond because you’re not dealing with an established ecosystem.
Decorative fountains, bubbling urns, and spillway bowls all provide the soothing sight and sound of water in the landscape without taking up a lot of space. They attract birds, butterflies, hummingbirds, dragonflies, and other wildlife. These recirculating water features add an artistic depth to any part of your landscape.
Fountains are magnificent for condo owners or for homeowners who don’t have space for a more significant feature. They are also suitable for homeowners who would like a water feature but don’t have a large budget. Fountains are almost always the least expensive alternative.
RainXchange™ is a rainwater system that is designed to combine a sub-surface rainwater harvesting storage system with a decorative water feature. The water feature helps to aerate the water, creating better water quality. This water can be used to irrigate your surrounding landscape. A small booster pump and garden hose make the stored water easily accessible at any time.
We can integrate the RainXchange™ with any water feature type whether it be a pond, a pondless waterfall or a fountain. Due to the modular capabilities of the RainXchange™, it makes it a great system to install in spaces that typically wouldn’t be able to accommodate a large reservoir.
Commercial Water Features
When it comes to attracting customers to your place of business, the difference is with water. Science has proven that humans are naturally drawn to water. Take a look at the earliest settled areas of the world. They're all located near a source of water!
A dramatic entrance is a key to getting prospective buyers into your business, and the sight and sound of water will draw people in and set you apart from others in your community. Hotels, retail centres, residential developments, restaurants and others all use water to attract customers and set their business apart as a destination point.
Water Feature Maintenance
We offer water feature maintenance packages for our clients. The features we install are low maintenance so typically all they will require is a spring cleaning and a fall shut down. However, you may want your feature in pristine shape year-round, and we've also got you covered.
We will come to your pond in the spring and get it ready for a new outdoor season. Our checklist ensures that your feature will have everything it needs to give you another year of joy.
We will get your pond ready for winter and make sure your fish have everything they need to ensure their survival.
We will come and prepare your feature for a special event you may be having. With the Event Package, we will cut back any overgrown vegetation, replace any lights, add rock as needed and make sure your pond is looking its best. Best to call us as far in advance as possible to ensure availability.
