About Us

You know how you just wake up one day and think…”there is nothing I would enjoy more than to have waterfall in my backyard.”  Well, that’s what happened to me… and the rest is history.

How It All Came To Be

I love a challenge.  For me, the best nation in the world is DETERMI-NATION!  That’s my “go to” saying… just ask my four kids.

I’m not exactly sure when or how it happened. Like all great things it started with an idea. One man, a shovel, a vision and tons of ambition. The idea grew into an obsession and that obsession came to life! I love ponds, and helping people create the backyard of their dreams.

We are here to help. Whether it’s green water in your pond or how to finish an outdoor concrete countertop.  Our goal is to help you get your project done right. We can help, because we’ve done it.

I am a happily married father of 4 with a crazy schedule.  Our family can’t always go on vacation to exotic locations, so my plan was to bring a relaxing location to us. There is nothing more relaxing than the sound of a waterfall in the comfort of your own backyard.

Our Mission

We are here to help you avoid some of the mistakes and bumps along the way. Our goal is to help other DIY’ers like you accomplish your goals and bring your ideas to life.

    1. Thanks for visiting. Still a work in progress. Check back soon for updates!

  1. Wow, I just came across your site today (random DuckDuckGo) search) and it's packed with great information. I looking at what Salt adds to a pond because one of my Koi (she's the oldest and LARGEST) is randomly swimming bent (spasms?). I hope I didn't add too much salt at the beginning of the season (I followed directions and the other Koi are fine).

    Anyway, I have bookmarked your site and plan on making it my "go-to"
