No matter how basic the design, it is impossible for any two ponds to be exactly alike. However, the fundamental steps in the construction process are relatively similar. As an informative guide, the standard steps involved in constructing a pond are outlined on this page.
"Failure to plan is a plan to fail."
Every lake or pond must start with a good design. Initially, this may seem like a simple task. However, if even the slightest detail is not properly addressed, the end result could be a bird bath instead of a duck retreat. Like a jigsaw puzzle, each piece of the construction process offers a glimpse towards the potential promise of the completed project. In other words, every detail related to your pond or lake is examined to maximize your property’s attributes and to proactively eliminate issues which could occur during construction.
Details to consider in a pond or lake design include:
topography of the property
soil test results
overall desired aesthetics
After carefully evaluating all the characteristics that will make your pond or lake a one-of-a-kind reflection of your lifestyle, a strategy is developed and actual construction begins. Throughout the construction phase, the progression of the pond or lake is under constant scrutiny. Adjustments are made to ensure every cost-saving measure has been taken and every attribute maximized, while remaining focused on the desired outcome.

Flag off the outside perimeters of the pond and make any changes necessary to ensure that all specifications have been properly addressed.
Scrape off the layer of topsoil located inside the pond area and push it into piles for re-use during the final landscaping phase of the project.
Cut out a defined edge around the outer boundaries of the pond using an excavator.
Layer by layer, the excess soil is cut out of the ground and then pushed into large piles.
An excavator scoops up the excess dirt and places it into dump trucks for removal or relocation on the property.
Using a huge metal bucket with teeth attachments, the excavators sculpts out the interior design of the pond to the desired depths and dimensions.
The details that make each pond unique start to take shape.
Section by section, the walls of the pond are sloped and the bottom groomed in preparation for the final steps in the construction process.
Measurements are taken to ensure a level elevation across the entire top edge of the pond.
An overflow drainage system is installed and a layer of hard clay is used to line the pond and prevent water leakage from occurring.
Observe how manicured the pond's surface looks once the clay lining has been installed and the final grade completed.
The only thing left to do to this pond is add water.
Imagine waking up every morning to a cup of coffee and this as your backyard view.
