Lawn & Landscaping
Aquatica had previously installed a water garden in our back yard 10+ years ago, but recent activity by local heron population had been decimating my Koi population. We contacted Dean Pepito in the spring and arranged to have the pond re-dug to a deeper depth and expanded with a second waterfall, with fish caves in which the Koi could hide when the heron came to visit. Actual work started with the crew removing all of my aquatic plants and putting them in a stock tank to hold while work was performed, then they drained the pond and took it apart stone by stone, all by hand. They removed the original liner and dug (again by hand) in our lovely clay soil, about 18' deeper, re-contouring the pond, and adding a second waterfall, with all of its related equipment. They relined the pond, replaced all the old stone (which had been power washed) as well as added several tons of new stones both within the pond and in the landscaping nearby. They replanted the pond and refilled it, added starter chemicals, and mulched around the outer perimeter to reintegrate it in my existing landscape. They also installed some additional external lighting to highlight the new feature. The job took about a week to complete, with three or more workers at the house every day. This was during the 100 degree weather we had this summer and the crew worked really hard, cheerfully and without complaint. They were amazing, and had an unparalleled eye for design and artistic stone placement. Every night when they left, they took pains to sweep up the dirt and dust from the patio so the back yard would look presentable. While they may not have offered the lowest price to perform this work, they certainly offered the best value, expertise, and concern for customer satisfaction. Aquatica is by far the best choice for any back yard pond project.
