Back Patio Pondscape
A gorgeous century home outside of Guelph gets a complete pondscape renovation.
Out with the old, in with the new!
The owner of this beautiful century home in the village of Puslinch had an old pond that was tired and leaking. She approached Jackson Pond to help her design something much larger… that wouldn’t leak.
A lifelong veterinarian, this client embodied the term “animal person,” with a dog who loves to hang out near the water and loads of fish who needed a place to call home.
Small but elevated.
Together, we landed on a 10’ x 15’ pond complete with 5’ stream and waterfall. The pond itself is actually elevated above the patio with a retaining wall, making it more viewable. Surrounding gardens and a range of water plants complete the picture.
Key Design Features
A refuge from a busy lifestyle.
A hard worker, our client was looking for an escape from the stresses of her long days. Her backyard is now a refuge where she can entertain friends and family on the back patio, or just listen to the water as it flows — drink in hand!
This property was recognized for its excellence by Landscape Ontario.
I met with Jackson Pond and they immediately understood my vision. They gave me sage advice and made sound suggestions. Phil was patient in explaining his design concept and made excellent recommendations not only on design but also with additional recommended features to help with pond maintenance. He designed and built this magnificent feature that we have today. Without a doubt, the pond is what all my guests comment on when they enter my yard.
Jackson Pond is an honest and reputable company that offers exceptional workmanship and professionalism. Their construction team is amazing, courteous, and hard-working. I would not hesitate to recommend them to family and friends.
