Water Garden Design, Installation & Maintenance

We started building ponds in 1973 then slowly dripped our way until 1991 when we added pond fish department. Since then each year we install more and more of a ever widening collection of styles.  Each one custom designed for each clients tastes and interests.

Cookie Cutter Kit ponds is not what Arbordale offers...rather each water creation is custom designed and engineered by Jeff Salmon. Making the feature part of the yard and enjoyable from many viewing locations of the home.  The pond starts with a tour of the yard and a interview of your objectives. The rock choice is the important part of the process as all inspiration comes from this.  A beautiful looking pond is a failure if maintenance is time consuming so water quality and filter planning is top of mind throughout the process. Once a plan that fits the yard and the budget is complete the real work begins.

Our pond builders go thru rigorous training and a apprentice period.  Certification is required from Atlantic University and retraining occurs all year. Master pond builder Jeff Salmon stays with the project until completion. We create or rebuild over 100 ponds a year.  call us now 688-9125 or email us.
