Our team at Snead’s Outdoor Services (SOS) knows that you care about your landscaping, and we want to help you make it the best it can be. One popular way to add interest and beauty to any landscape is to install a pond. In this article, our team will go over more about how the pond construction process works so that you can know what to expect.
- Set Up Plumbing and Filtration- Before we even excavate the area, the first step in the pond construction process is to set up the pipes and filters that will keep the pond full and clean. Our team will place the skimmer and biological filter, lay out the pipes, and connect the pipes to the filter before we start the excavation process.
- Excavation and Lining- The next phase of pond construction consists of actually digging the hole, or excavating the new pond, then installing more components such as the lining. We will install a rubber liner to prevent water from simply seeping back into the soil, then finish hooking up the skimmer and other components such as the pump. We’ll place rocks and stones to give the pond a more natural look and install any underwater lighting.
- Filling and Finishing the Pond- The last part of pond construction is to fill the pond with water and complete any finishing touches. This includes trimming excess lining so that it’s not visible, filling the area around the pond with soil, building retaining walls for waterfalls, and more.
