When you think about a truly beautiful backyard, few elements stand out as much as a pond or fountain. Whether you go for a simplistic pond that has a few fish in it or you go for an intricate pond with waterfalls, tunnels, and plants, you can’t go wrong.

Ponds add beauty but if you hire the wrong company, they will add a lot of heartache too. That’s why you need to go with a reputable company. We suggest these:

1. Foltz’s Ponds

Ponds are absolutely the best way to add beauty to your yard because they add a lot of dimension and depth to the visual and sound quality of your yard. Not only that, but they allow you to create an entire ecosystem that takes care of itself. Foltz’s Ponds loves to install ponds for families that care about the environment and want to have fish.

Their professional team knows how to work with State College ground in order to get the best possible installation that will last a long time. They will give you a free estimate so that you know what to expect and they will walk you through every step of the process.

The Garden’s Edge has been a local favorite for almost 30 years and they show no signs of stopping in the State College area. They work exclusively with Aquascape Ecosystems, which are some of the best pond systems around.

Their specialty is to make ponds that look like they just happened to be there when your house was built. The award-winning ponds are completely natural and use organic materials to blend everything seamlessly with your yard.


Not only that, but they can add waterfalls, fountains, and even islands in your pond – you just have to tell them how much you are willing to spend and what you want.

3. Moon Brothers

The natural look is exceedingly popular amongst people who want to add a pond to their yard. Very few people create natural ponds that are large like Moon Brothers. If you have a lot of room, you can get something that is truly remarkable. While their small ponds are great as well, it is really the larger installations that allow them to shine.

They will work with your space to keep it safe, intricately combining the landscaping and hardscaping together to create something that is breathtaking. Extremely knowledgeable and professional, their work is always high quality and they will work until they are satisfied.

4. Stone and Leaf Landscapes

Sometimes you see a pond that will absolutely stop traffic – if you are in the State College area, that pond was probably installed by Stone and Leaf Landscapes. Their team molds beautiful ponds and fountains by mixing together organic materials, stone, cement, technology, and ingenuity.

While their ponds tend to be at the higher end of the price scale, if you want something that is truly special, there are few companies that can compare. A lot of this skill comes from the fact that they have many years of experience and are constantly updating their knowledge.

Even if you don’t want something this grand, this is a great website to check out to get some ideas about what is possible.

5. Natural Waterscapes

resource that won’t only help you with all stages of the pond process, they will willingly work with you to help you learn. Very few companies actually teach people about how to do work on their own because then they don’t need them anymore.

Even if you know what you are doing, this is still a great resource to buy your supplies and chemicals to keep your pond looking fantastic all year long. Better yet, they will help you restore old ponds that just need a little bit of love.

6. Tussey Landscaping

Bubbling rocks, waterfalls, and koi ponds are just a few of the things they can offer to your yard.

Not only are they creative, but they are extremely personable and will work with you to create something that you really love. From the first steps to maintenance, they will be able to guide you throughout the entire process.
