It’s Worth The Investment

“Installing a koi pond in our yard will be worth the money, absolutely.”

Peter turns to look at MJ. “Oh yeah? I’m sure the benefits of a koi pond are great but is it really worth it?” They’ve been having this same conversation for a couple of weeks now.

But this time it won’t end in a standoff because MJ is prepared.

“I know cost is a big concern for you. That’s why I found some great posts to show you that the cost to build a koi pond can be worth it.” She settles down on the couch next to Peter so they can both see the post.

MJ looks over at Peter. “It’s a cheap hole in the ground versus a pond that looks like it’s always been there. Plus, more expensive ponds are built by professionals who have all the tools and materials. See the difference?”

Peter frowns at the phone screen. “I can tell the difference all right. But what’s the cost of the average koi pond?”

How Much Does The Average Koi Pond Cost?

The average koi pond costs about $9,000. This is for a quality, low-maintenance koi pond that looks natural and beautiful. The price includes labor, rocks, gravel, liner, and filters. It usually increases because new pond owners add in extras like fish, plants, LED lights, or more.

“And you get all that? These are some amazing pictures…” Peter trails off, staring at the pictures.

MJ scrolls further down to show him what large and small koi ponds can look like and how much they cost to build.

Price Of A Large Koi Pond

Large koi ponds can start at around $20,000. They can be about 15 by 20 feet wide, have a stream, and hold around 2,500 gallons of water. Plus they usually have more design features.

“And they can even go into the 6-digit range! That’s a huge pond, like, swimmable size!” Peter stammers in amazement.

MJ smiles as she scrolls to the cost to build a small koi pond.

Price Of A Small Koi Pond

The price of a small koi pond ranges a lot. The base price is usually a few thousand dollars if you want a quality koi pond you’ll love. This means it looks amazing, works well, and you barely have to do anything to maintain it.

“It’s kind of cute, really,” MJ murmurs with a smile. She sees Peter smiling out of the corner of her eye. Now that she knows she has his attention it’s time for Phase II…

“What do you think?” MJ asks innocently. Peter sits back with a sigh and rubs his chin. “After seeing these pictures, I have to say I’m starting to get on board with this buying a koi pond thing. But what about maintenance? How are they built? And…” Peter stops as he sees the smile on MJ’s face.
