Shape & Size

Nature’s Re-Creations designs and builds backyard ponds and water gardens in a variety of shapes, sizes and styles. We work your existing landscape into your pond design. Decks, driveways and patios are all strategically considered in the design process and can be intertwined into your water feature. The most common size for a starting pond is 10’x12’ to 11’x16’ – 2’ deep. But Nature's Re-Creations can create any custom-sized pond for your landscape. Whether you choose a small pond tucked in the corner of your garden or a large backyard pond, you won't regret adding a beautiful water feature to your outdoor space.

Backyard PondsCost & Installation

We perform the entire installation of your water garden from small, medium to large ponds. As a Master Certified Aquascape Contractor, Nature’s Re-Creations creates features of high quality and design. Installation includes outlining the pond location, digging the hole, leveling the excavation, installing the pond liner, adding gravel, filling the pond and completing with foliage. Micro pond systems range from $8,500 to $12,000, while average range from $12,000 to $25,000. 

Although each is unique in design and creation, all backyard ponds require the same key components. We work with Mother Nature to ensure a low-maintenance water feature by taking a naturally-balanced ecosystem approach. With a mix of aquatic plants and terrestrial plants, fish, gravel, decorative rocks and boulders, and proper filtration, you can enjoy a healthy, beautiful work of art in your landscape.

In addition to the scenic views and wonderful sounds backyard ponds provide, they also form a natural habitat for wildlife. Watch as your pond attracts butterflies, dragonflies, hummingbirds, frogs and more.

What People Are Saying

  • "Our friends and relatives have raved about our pond. Neighbors admire it. Strangers walking in the neighborhood have come into our back yard and complimented us on Nature's Re-Creation's labors..."

    - Ralph S.

  • "We are so happy with our pond and landscape. We are also very disappointed that we could not be on the tour this year and showcase what a quality job you deliver. We had too many family commitments this year to do it, but will commit to being on the tour next year and representing what you can deliver. It just reinforces that we made the right decision in choosing you to build our pond. As we heard many times last year when we were on the tour, 'we were told we had to come see this one!'"

    - Dennis and Cathy

  • "The quality and beauty of the waterfall far exceeded my expectations! I have seen pictures of other water features that looked less than spectacular..."
