I Highly recommend this company. The absolute best customer service ever. Mike and his team member did an outstanding job cleaning and repairing my ponds.
Mike answered all of our questions in detail. You can see the compassion they had while caring for the ponds. I had my initial call with Andrew and I was super excited for Premier ponds to come out.
My advice to anyone looking for excellent service call Premier Pond. They aim to please.
Everyone at Premier Ponds has been great. Andrew is always very responsive and his entire team is professional and courteous while on site.
The end-product is beautiful and my clients have been very happy with their services. I’d highly recommend them.
I highly suggest hiring the guys at Premier Ponds to build your dream pond! I had long wanted a natural swimming pool or a pond in my yard for both my benefit and the birds and bees that visit my yard. My area is awash with mosquitos, so I was, additionally, wanting to attract and retain a healthy population of dragonflies.
I first worked over the phone with Andrew to discuss the size and options. He was extremely friendly and answered any follow-up questions I had over the next few weeks. The before and after pictures as well as videos they have on their website were also really helpful and gave me an idea of what to expect. The best bonus of all is that within a week of installation, I had both orange and blue dragonflies that took up residence and eviscerated the mosquito population! I’m calling that a win!
FAQs Homeowners Ask Us About Water Features
Here are the answers to the most common questions people ask our water feature team:
Adding a pond to your backyard can provide various benefits, from enhancing your outdoor aesthetics to providing a habitat for aquatic life. It’s also a fantastic choice for gardening enthusiasts who want to explore water plants. Furthermore, a pond can contribute to a cooler atmosphere in your yard.
Before deciding on the type of water feature to install, consider your preferences. If you’re attracted to the tranquil sounds of waterfalls or streams and aren’t particularly interested in fish or a variety of water plants, a pondless waterfall could be a cost-effective and easy-to-maintain choice.
