Don easily exceeded my expectations. We had given him a challenge of fitting a pond in a certain location without exceeding certain boundaries. Boy did he deliver! Don not only stayed within the area we had, but the final product is far greater than anything I had ever envisioned. Our entire family is extremely excited to have a pond that we will enjoy for years to come. Don is a "pondmaster" and ...

We purchased a house with a pond that had been badly neglected for 6+ years. We had our landscaper take out most of the leaves, but it had never been properly cleaned out. We didn't even know how deep it was because of all the debris on the bottom. The pond looked lovely enough last summer after placing some aquatic plants around the edges between the rocks and adding some trapdoor snails (no fish...

I called several companies to give me an idea on design and price for a pondless water feature. Don, owner of Backyard Tropicals, returned my call promptly. He came over the following day and spent about an hour talking about what could be done in the space I had in my backyard. Don came back several days later and showed me a drawing of what his vision was and gave me a price. After talking with ...

From start to finish, Don was a pleasure to work with. He is professional, reliable and knowledgeable. Unlike the other companies I talked with, Don was willing (and enthusiastic) about doing the job that I wanted done, for a reasonable price and getting it done when I needed it. The others were very locked into their own approach and design, and not interested in my needs or budget. Don was able ...

Description of Work
I had an existing waterfall and pond, and needed the pond enlarged while keeping the waterfall intact and maintaining the same design and structural look. The pond expansion took it from approximately 200 gallons to about 1200 gallons.

Don was an absolute pleasure to work with and his word is his bond, which sadly we homeowners don't see enough of. I have worked with Tropical Backyards for the last two years and will continue to do so in the future as well as recommend them to anyone looking for quality work at a reasonable price.

Description of Work
I inherited a pond when I moved into my home and now needed to have it renovated, hopefully using some of the existing materials. Don did a wonderful job designing and completing the work, reusing part of the original design, but making the much needed changes that perfectly matched what I was looking for. He was also tolerant of my constant dabbling as I fit a stone I like here or there on the wall surrounding the pond.
