Breaking In His First Home

“It’s my first house so it has to have an amazing backyard,” says Andrew firmly.

His wife smiles and nods. She knew this was coming. Andrew is a higher-up at a pond contracting company so this makes perfect sense. He’s made large and small koi pond ideas come to life, so she’s confident he’ll do something amazing.

“The plan is to make this a showcase feature pond. I want potential clients to come to see this pond and know just what we are capable of. It might be December (*of 2013) but that’s not going to stop us from building this backyard pond in Silver Spring, Maryland!” says Andrew excitedly.

All About Andrew’s Backyard Pond

To start, it’s going to be a large 20-foot by 20-foot pond.

In the process of building the Silver Spring pond

This backyard pond in Silver Spring will also feature:

  • 3 mystery waterfalls
  • A beach edge
  • Negative edge into a planting bog
  • Fountain urn built into the wall
  • Rain barrel water reclamation system
  • 25-foot stream

Beach edges are exactly how they sound. It’s a sandy edge gently sloping into the pond. It looks amazing, it’s a great way to soak your feet, and exploring or cleaning the pond is easier.

A pond bog filter helps clean the water and keep it clearer. You’ll also have room for more plants. Your pond can look more natural and amazing this way!

The fountain urn does more than add beauty and uniqueness to your backyard pond. It also moves the water around, which aerates (adds oxygen) to it. This is great for your fish and it helps prevent algae and standing water.

The rain barrel reclamation system helps capture and filter rainwater for you to use.

Patio on which a celebration is happening

Andrew also has Premier Ponds build a patio next to his backyard pond. Now he and everyone else has a great place to enjoy his pond from.

How Long And How Much?

Andrew’s pond took from December 2013 to April 2014 and cost just under $80,000.

Wait, 4 months?! Sadly, the winter was much worse than normal. There was snowfall after snowfall, which makes it almost impossible to craft a pond. You could do it, but it’s more likely mistakes will be made. Cold like this is hard and uncomfortable to work in.

Usually, a project of this size would take 5 of our guys about 2 weeks to complete.
