We have been designing and installing ponds for the past ten years.
In 1993, owner Dennis Kading and a partner started Taskforce Landscape, where they serviced restaurants in maintenance and landscape. A few years later, they reduce their services to provide only landscape maintenance and installation.
In 1998, after learning about Aquascape Designs Natural Water Feature systems. We were curious about the validity of this non-chemical solution and tested it internally. It worked. Since then, ponds have been our passion.
Dennis became a C-27 licensed Landscape Contractor and opened a business with his partner in Upland called Waterscapes Plus. Waterscapes Plus was very successful, installing over 400 ponds in the first 5 years of business.
In January 2005 The Pond Pros was established. While The Pond Pros is not a franchise for Aquascape Designs, they strongly believe in and promote the system’s capabilities. They have over 800 customers to demonstrate their belief in the system.
If you want to see a pond designed with enthusiasm and passion, ask to see the “Kading Lagoon”, a 15×55 foot pond with 3 waterfalls, over 100 koi, 3 turtles and 4 bull frogs. We recently added a 28 foot stream into a small shallow pond in the front yard with a bridge to the front door.
Years Servicing Ponds
Landscaping: Complete your Paradise
No pond is complete without an adjacent deck, brick patio, or gazebo. Because moving water encompasses all senses, your water feature should be the focal point of your yard. Perennial plantings, ornamental grasses, and even ground cover help naturalize the water’s edge. Often a deck or patio can be incorporated for a more up close and personal appreciation of your water feature. You can always do your project in stages – adding plants and a patio in upcoming seasons.
What Size is Best?
Location and size are the two most important decisions you will make about your water feature. By some estimates, 90 percent of the original water gardens sold are replaced later with larger ones. An enthusiastic pond hobbyist always finds new plants or interesting fish to add to his investment. As a general rule, a 180 square-foot or 11′ x 16′ pond is a good “standard” size water feature. Trace your prospective pond out on the ground with a garden hose to help you visualize what the finished size will be.
Natural: Environmentally Friendly & Safe
Environmentally friendly and completely customized water features can be installed anywhere – similar to traditional landscaping. In addition, water features like other types of landscaping, mature with age increasing the value of your house more than any other kind of home improvement.
Popularity: Reconnect with Nature
Water features are today’s hottest trend in landscaping. Across America, high maintenance, boring expanses of lawn are being transformed into beautiful, low maintenance water features. Everyday millions of people return home to a little paradise…their own backyards!
Aquaplants: Jewels of the Garden
Water plants are truly the “emerald” jewels of the gardening world. Self-watering and hardy, these plants return year after year. You can even plant tropical lilies that bloom at night! The beauty and low maintenance of aquatic plants provide a truly unique accent to any water garden.
Fish: The Perfect Pet
The flash of brilliantly colored fish adds immensely to the enjoyment of your water garden. In fact, fish actually help support the natural ecosystem and reduce pond maintenance. Their sparkle and playfulness offer endless fascination, enhancing the naturalness of the setting.
Tranquility: Right in Your Own Yard
Relax alongside a water garden and experience a tranquility that transcends today’s stressful world. Recuperate from your hectic day with free moments, listening to the soothing sound of a waterfall. Join the many satisfied homeowners who readily profess adding a water feature to their landscape was the best investment they’ve ever made.
What is the Cost
Installed, a water feature is similarly priced to a hot tub.
A well-designed water feature includes:
• Mechanical and biological filtration
• Pump and plumbing
• 45 mil EPDM liner and underlayment
• Rock work
• Underwater lighting
• A berm
• An automatic fill valve
Unlike a hot tub, your water garden will not use any chemicals, require any test kits, and will actually increase the value of your property.
