We work with each client as a design partner to build a beautiful low maintenance pond that mimics Mother Nature by using aquatic plants and beneficial bacteria to create a healthy water environment that functions very similarly to what we find in naturally occurring ponds and streams. Simply put this is our philosophy.

Serene Simplicity:

We can craft a simple low maintenance pond or water garden for you. The pond would be suitable for small Koi or Goldfish. This low maintenance pond will require simple weekly and minimal quarterly attention.

Advanced Water Garden Eco System:

As a water garden owner you may develop increased goals and desire a more advanced water garden, with fountains, waterfalls and more. We create and design this with you to craft the perfect water garden escape you envision. We consult with you personally on what would be required to increase the scope of your water features.

The good news is that the pond maintenance will remain the same with simple weekly maintenance; minimal quarterly maintenance and the annual draining is recommended to ensure a healthy pond for the inhabitants like your Koi, plants, goldfish, turtles, minnows and algae eaters.

Our Goal:

No matter if you’re just getting started or are a more advanced in your experience with water gardens. Our goal is the creation of a naturally balanced, low maintenance aquatic ecosystem that allows you more relaxation time by their aquatic paradise, and less time worrying about maintenance. Our natural water gardens include a natural balance of fish, plants, aeration, filtration, and rocks and gravel. All components interact naturally with one another helping to create and maintain a sustainable, low-maintenance ecosystem.

We constructed these with every consideration for color, light availability, space and sound in creating a balanced environment where every pre-existing feature of your landscape will be considered during the planning and design stage.

We know each garden is unique in its design and creation, from ponds and natural streams to stunning stylized waterfalls. Your water feature will reflect your individual taste and be designed to suit your lifestyle while preserving the existing surroundings.

Larry Carnes and Reflections showed the ability to have vision to maximize the space- even in small areas to make them feel like an oasis. The attention to detail from layout to stone/rock placement was and is artful and beautiful.
