7 Places in Redwood City for Ponds

There are few elements that add more to your yard than a pond will (except maybe trees). Ponds not only give you something absolutely gorgeous to look at if they are done correctly, but they also give you a different element in your yard that brings in wildlife, gives ambient noise, and is easy to take care of.

Ponds are difficult to work with if you don’t have the knowledge, however, and should be installed by a professional. There are far too many ways that installing one can go wrong and you are just left with a mess – one leak and you can get sinkholes, damage, and even rotting to your yard, trees, or home.

Try these local businesses to get the best pond around:

The workers are extremely knowledgeable about working with ponds in special circumstances. They also help with things like rainwater retention and other green solutions to the current drought problem, allowing you to have your pond filled without the guilt.

They definitely have some of the best prices in the area, especially for ponds that require a little bit more work. The team is extremely hard working and tries to stay on schedule as much as they can, but they are still friendly.

Note that they also work on repairs for ponds if you have any issues with your pond after it has been installed – whether you worked with them or not.

3. Creative Ponds

Of course, they still make more natural looking ponds as well.

If you are looking for a business that really cares about its customers and doesn’t take shortcuts, then this just might be the business for you. The team at Creative Ponds really takes their work seriously and wants to ensure that you have a great experience with them.

Keep Your Pond Running Clean

Your pond is going to require some work from you as well – or at least someone else that you hire. You see, the water that flows through the pond is directly impacted by everything around it. If you get too many leaves in your pond, it can start to turn green, which is a hard problem to reverse. If a branch falls on your pond, the cost to fix it might be up there with getting a new one.

At Econo Tree Service, we have worked with tons of yards that have ponds, keeping the leaves clear of the water and the branches from interfering with the design. It is a delicate balance, but it can be done with a practiced hand.

We can also help you if you need to have space cleared so that you can get the pond of your dreams. Give us a call today at (650) 200-2495 and we can start the process with a free estimate.
