Let us introduce ourselves. We are The Pond Diggers, artists if you will. Not the kind that works
with a canvas and colorful oil paints… but, rather waterscapes, backyard waterfalls, we're Waterscape
Designs - artists. Specifically, our specialty is taking ordinary
plain looking backyards… and transforming them into beautiful
tropical waterscapes paradises.
Not really, when you understand the secret.
Imagine Backyard Waterfalls
Imagine if you will that you've come home after a long hard day at
work. This one has been harder than usual. Nothing seemed to go
right. Disaster was abounding throughout the day. Now you've reached
your home. You just walked through the door. Normally, you would
head for a couch, the bed, or that nice comfortable easy chair.
However, this time you keep walking to your backyard. You're headed
for your sanctuary. Your own place of quiet. Your own little chunk
of mother nature. This is your paradise. There's a Water Garden
here. Beautiful clean, clear, crisp water. So clear in fact, you can
see all the way to the bottom.
There are fish dancing and darting around through the waterscape between
and the other aquatic plants. They seem to almost welcome you with
open arms. There's also a waterfall here in your backyard. It plays a rhythmic and
melodic tune as it constantly re-circulates the water that's
constantly passing through it.
You look at the rocks, the pebbles, and the stones. You think to
yourself, I can't believe that I own something this beautiful. I
can't believe its waiting here just for me.
In addition to the strenuous workday, it has also been unbearably
hot. So, you take your shoes off and plunge your feet into the cool
refreshing water. Aaaaaah, that feels so good. You can feel the cool
energy from the Water Garden as it sucks every bit on tension out of
Your feet dangle in the waterscape as the cool stream refreshes you. It
revitalizes you. It takes you back to a time when you were safe, and
secure, and someone else took care of all your problems.
As dark approaches, the underwater lights automatically kick on.
Perhaps, your spouse has now arrived, and they come out to join you.
They may have even prepared you a cool refreshing drink.
The kids are playing right beside you, totally fascinated with the
Water Garden Design, the waterfall and all the abundance of life therein.
As you rise to go into the house, you think to yourself, "this is so
right". You'd love to stay here another hour, but you know there are
other things you have to do. But that's ok, because tomorrow is
another day. And your water garden tropical paradise will be sitting right here
waiting for you. Begging you to return to its peace, its comfort,
and its tranquility.
This is your own little heaven that's custom made, just for you.
We are Water Garden Design Experts
We specialize in creating waterscape designs like the one just described to you in
this story. We go out to people's homes, interview them, survey their backyards,
and then design a custom made Water Garden that's just right for them.
When we said earlier that we are nature artists, we weren't kidding. The work that we
do is akin to Davinci painting the "Mona Lisa", or rather Michelangelo,
sculpting the statue of David. We actually take your plain backyard and sculpt it
to a waterscapes paradise that's comfortable for you.
Each Water Garden Design is different, because each person's needs are different. The
waterscape designs that we do for Mrs. Jones, might look nothing like the waterscape
designs we do for Mrs. Peterson. Each of our clients gets a design that's custom tailored
to their needs, wants, and desires.
What characteristics Do These Waterscape Designs Have In Common
Even though, each backyard is unique, we always include the following
"A Beautiful Backyard Waterfall" We love designing backyard waterfalls. They're just like snowflakes; no two
are exactly the same. Some are high, some are low, some have large
rocks, some have small ones, some have ledges, it all depends on the
"Clean, Crystal Clear Water"
We love water, and it's kind of a prerequisite if you have a
waterfall. But, we don't settle for just any kind of waterfalls. We build
each one of these tropical waterscape designs so that the water is clean
and clear. You can see all the way to the bottom. We won't stand for
any of that pea-green soup stuff that you may have seen with other
Water Garden Designs and backyard waterfalls. This is supposed to be paradise after all. You
wouldn't expect cruddy looking water in paradise, now would you? And
you won't see any crud in our Waterscape Designs either.
"Colorful Koi Fish" Next to water, there's only one thing we like as much, and
that's koi fish. Especially colorful koi fish. If you think dogs are man's
best friend, then you have never gotten to know a koi fish. Now we're not
talking about those little goldfish that swim in a little glass
aquarium. We're talking about big KOI, and goldfish that are twelve to
twenty-four inches long. You can get to know them just like Spot,
Rover, or Mr..Jingles. Every customer we know has named their fish,
and they play with them just like any other pet (except they have to
stay in the water). Did you know that Koi fish can live up to 100
years? You may have to put your koi in your will.
Another interesting creature we like is the aquatic turtle. Although, we don't
think they are a fun as the fish, they can also bring enjoyment as
well. Frogs, toads, and mosquito loving dragonflies all play a roll
in a Water Garden Design as well. And as for the mosquitoes, they're no
problem because the larvae is either eaten by the koi fish (who consider
them a delicacy) or sucked into the skimmer and drowned.
"Water lilies and terrestrial plants" We believe plants and flowers add a special beauty to any of our waterscape designs.
After all, a paradise is not a paradise if it doesn't have beautiful
greenery and colorful flowers. We like it lush, and we like it green,
so we always suggest plenty of both.
"Pebbles, Rocks, and Boulders" Pebbles, rocks and boulders also add to the beauty of the mix. They
are important keys to creating that paradise look. Sometimes they're
big, sometimes they're small, but they are always in abundance in
all of our backyard waterfalls and water garden designs.
Well, there you have it. Those are all the basics. However, even
though those are the core elements, no two waterscape designs are ever the
same. Some are big, some are small, some are narrow, some are long.
Each Water Garden Design and Backyard Waterfall is unique to the customer and their surroundings.
Benefits Of Your Own Private WATER GARDEN DESIGN
Now that we've looked at some of the core features of our waterscapes,
let's look at some of the benefits of owning your own water garden design.
1. It adds beauty to your backyard. Paradises are beautiful, and they
can improve the look of a backyard a thousand percent. We've created
waterscape designs in plain, sometimes almost barren backyards. We mean these
places were absolute eyesores. However, once we designed a new
paradise… they instantly became works of art. We're not sure if we work
harder because they were so ugly… or if its just because it was ugly
to start off with, but ugly yards often ends up being the most
2. It increases the value of your home. It's nice to know that your
investment in a waterscape design does not go without a financial reward.
We've heard stories of Water Gardens adding $10,000.00 or more to the
value of a home. Now, don't hold us to it, because we're no real
estate brokers, but our customers have told us their property values
increased quite a bit with the new water garden addition.
3. It increases the salability of your home. Now you have to figure
that if you fall in love with your paradise, then other people will
too. Once again, we have had customers tell us that when they sold
their house, the thing that clinched the deal was the paradise and
their backyard waterfall. Once, the potential buyer saw the waterscape design, the seller
could practically name their price.
4. Makes friends, relatives, and neighbors extremely jealous and green
with envy. If you want to be the envy of your friends, relatives or
neighbors, just throw a party and let them have a look at the
backyard waterfall paradise. You'll not only be the talk of the night, but you could be
the talk of the town. Let us tell you what happens soon after your
friends, relatives, and neighbors see your paradise. They soon want
one for themselves. Now, you can chose to be nice and give them our
name (which we much appreciate), or you can be a little stinker and
let them squirm. The choice is up to you.
5. It's Easy to maintain. The nicest thing about the waterscapes we build
is that they are very easy to maintain. Forget those stories that
you may have heard from other people… complaining of the water garden
maintenance nightmare… that they have to endure in order to maintain their
waterscapes. With our water garden design system, you only have to empty a net… every
week or so depending on how many leaves or other debris you have
falling in. You will hardly even get your hands dirty.
6. Cuts down on travel cost. No longer do you have to get on a plane to
escape to paradise, it's right in your own backyard. So, you don't
need to plan any tropical vacation. Of course, there are plenty of
other scenic places to vacation. I must warn you, once you get your
own little waterscapes paradise… you may just want to vacation at home. Don't
say I didn't warn you!
7. You can use it everyday. One of the nicest things about having your
very own paradise is that you can use it everyday. Every day becomes
something special. Everyday is a chance to get away from it all.
Incredibly this creates a new dynamic in relaxation… that we are
going to talk about in the next point.
8. Soothes even the most savage beast. Now here's a real interesting
fact about spending an extended amount of time in paradise. Several
customers have told us that they no longer have problems with anger…
since they've been spending time in their paradise everyday. Again,
we're just waterscape design artists, not a psychologist… so we're only passing on what
our customers have told us. We've heard this fact more than once. One
guy told us he was on the brink of having a heart attack before we
installed his water garden. He said he had a violent temper and he was
always getting mad. Now, he says, he's as calm as a cucumber. Things
just don't bother him like they use to. We've also had two other
wives tell us the exact same thing. They have noticed a remarkable
calmness in their husbands after they started spending time in the
waterscape paradises we designed for them.
9. Improves Relationship. We know you're going to be shaking your head
at this one, but we're telling you the truth here. We have several
customers, and we don't just mean two or three… we're talking at
least a dozen… who have told us flat out that their relationship
improved after a water garden paradise had been installed in their yard. Yes, we
know this sound like a stretch, but here us out. What we have heard
is that apparently getting away from TV, the computer, the internet,
the satellite dish, and rented movies causes couples to spend time
talking and getting to know each other as they sit by their
As a matter of fact, we were laughing with someone else the other day,
and we were saying… "There must be magic in those underwater
lights". We've just heard too many stories of couples renewing their
relationships… once they start spending time in next to their waterscape designs.
Now, you take that as you may… but don't be surprised if you don't
find you and your spouse doing some moonlight hand holding by your
water garden. It has happened more that once.
10. Gets kids out of the house. When we we're growing up, there weren't a
lot of temptations to stay in the house. Nowadays kids have so many
options that…you can't pry them out of the house with a crowbar.
There's TV, computer games, cable, satellite, DVD, you name it. A
kid can stay entertained for years in their house now. Except when
there's a Water Garden around!. Kids love water and they will be
fascinated with your waterscape. We've seen kids fascinated for hours
around a Water Garden. Whether its watching the water flow over the
waterfalls… or seeing the fish dart about, or watching the turtle
stomp around… it's fascinating. Don't be surprised if you're kicking
them out of your paradise and sending them into the house.
11. Gives you a place of sanctuary. At the beginning of this special
report, we told you about the person coming home and heading for
their paradise in the backyard. We tell that story because we have
customers that tell me that story all the time. Whereas they use to
come home… and plop down on the couch… they now head straight to the
backyard. Your paradise is a sanctuary. A place to unwind. A place
to relax and call your own. That's a true sanctuary.
12. Saves Time From Cutting The Grass. With your new found waterscape paradise…
you'll have more time to enjoy it… because you can say "Good Bye" to
some of your lawn mowing time. Because your Water Garden takes up
space, there'll be less space for the grass to grow. Less grass
means less mowing… which means more time to enjoy your water garden.
13. It's Ecological. For those of you who are big ecology fans… you'll
be happy to know that your new place of paradise is… very
ecologically friendly. The waterscape designs ecosystem we use is totally balanced and in
total harmony with Mother Nature. In fact, that's one of the secrets
we use to get the water crystal clear. Because the system is in
perfect balance… you don't have to worry about looking into a
pea-green soup sludge factory. The system is practically
self-cleaning. All you have to do is empty a net, once a week or so.
Maybe a little more often depending on how many falling leaves and
debris you have. When you work with Mother Nature… and not against
her… then maintenance is not a problem. Don't be surprised if you
see some birds hanging around your water garden, taking a bath in the
14. You can
always improve it. We have many customers who constantly improve
their waterscape paradises. In fact, a common thing is to build it one size,
and then bring us back out again to make it bigger. You see, no
matter how much our pond designers try to convince someone that this is paradise… it
really is paradise… there's always some skepticism. Then once, they
start enjoying it, they want more of it. They allocate more space
for it. It gets bigger and bigger. Sometimes, it takes up the whole
yard. But, that ok, people are loving every inch of it.
15. It's a good reason to stay home.
With the tragedy of 911 and the threat of war all around us, a lot of people are reluctant to
travel… especially on an airplane. Well, having your very own
waterscape paradise is a good reason to stay at home. Really, if paradise is
right there, then why bother to leave. Yes, we know it's not quite
the same as Hawaii… but Hawaii is a five hour plane ride from here in California.
Your waterscape paradise is right in your own backyard.
Common Questions About Water Gardens
Before we go any further, we want to go over some common questions
that we get all the time.
Q: Will I have to feed and take care of the fish?
A: The Water Gardens that we install… are all ecologically
balanced systems. Just like in Mother Nature, you won't have to care
or take care of the fish… in my system you don't have to either. Koi
eat plants. Yes, that's right… plants. And since your paradise is
filled with plants… your Koi have a ready-made source of food, all
around them. If you should desire to feed them, there are Koi food
pellets that you can give them. It is an enjoyable experience to
feed the fish. They'll actually eat right out of your hand. Be
careful though, not to over feed them - that's the biggest fish
problem there is.
Q: Will raccoons or other animals eat my fish?
A: As long as your Water Garden is at least two feet deep and
eight feet wide with hiding room, your fish should be safe. There are several predator control
products available on the market today that keep these predators at bay. A motion sensor water sprinkler
device is a great way to control raccons and herons.
Q: Will this water garden attract mosquitoes?
A: Mosquitoes breed only in stagnant water. With our Water
gardens, the water is constantly moving. It is constantly recycling
itself and being filtered. Mosquitoes lay their eggs on top of the
water in a floating nest. It almost like a boat filled with eggs. Our
recycling system sucks in the eggs and the mosquito larvas are
drowned. Yes, the fish do consider the larvae a delicacy.
Q: I've had a swimming pool and a hot tube before, and those
things are a maintenance nightmare. You have to constantly keep
things balanced and check chemical levels. You are also forever
cleaning them and pouring in chemicals. Is your so-called paradise
just as much work?
A: No, not at all. We will be the first to agree with you that pools and hot tubes
are maintenance nightmares. We know several people who complained
that they do nothing but maintain their pool or hot tub. They have
to constantly check the water and then add chemicals. With pools,
they must be cleaned on an almost daily basis. Well, the reason that
these environments need such high maintenance… is because they work
against Mother Nature. They are just chemical baths… and they must
constantly be checked and balanced. You can't have too much of this…
or too little of that… or you're going to need some more of this.
It's an endless cycle that gets tiresome quickly. With our waterscape paradise
environments, you won't have that problem.
Our Water Garden Designs work totally with Mother Nature. We don't
work against her. In fact, we use her to our advantage. We make her
work for me. When you go on vacation to the Caribbean, you don't see
dark cloudy water do you? Of course not. The water is crystal clear,
as it should be. Well, that's just what you'll see in our waterscape design paradise
creations. The water stays crystal clear. You can see all the way to
the bottom. That's the way Mother Nature intended.
Q: How deep are these paradises
of yours? Do I need to put a fence around it so that children won't fall in?
A: The Water Gardens we design are normally no deeper than 24". This
is normally in the middle and it's designed that way to help protect
the fish. So, basically at its deepest, your Water Garden is no
deeper than 2'. While that depth would not really pose a danger to
anyone over 7 years old, it is always good not to leave small
children unattended. It's better to be safe than sorry. And in most
locations fences are not required for anything two feet deep or
Q: Will this paradise require a lot of water?
A: You will of course need a good amount of water to fill
your water garden the first time. You basically have to add a
little water periodically…due to normal evaporation. Because this is
a filtered naturally organic system… a properly installed Water
Garden requires less water than the same square footage of grass.
How Much Will This Waterscape Design Cost?
We wish we could just give you a certain dollar figure, but that's
almost impossible. Since almost every waterscape paradise is custom designed
for a customer, it's impossible to give an exact dollar figure.
However, we can tell you that the paradises we design start from
$5,000.00 on up.
The "on up" part depends on what your idea of paradise is. Most of
the water gardens we design are pretty standard, and they end up being
around $8,000. We do have some more extravagant customers who go well
beyond $15,000 to $20,000.
We should mention again, that no matter where our customers start out…
they normally want to expand the size of their Water Gardens after a
year or two. Why? Because they generally find that the Water
Gardens… really are paradises. So they want to enjoy them even more.
They make them bigger, longer, and more elaborate.
If you don't have the money for a Water Garden… you don't have to
pay for it all at once. Once, you decide to go ahead… you only have
to pay 10 percent up front. Usually one-third is due upon start up
and no more… until your waterscape design is completed.
If you were shocked by the price of our paradises, you should keep in
mind the cost of a Caribbean vacation or a trip to Hawaii. Those can
cost $5,000 to $10,000 and they only last a short time. After about
a week… you're back home enduring the same old grind… that you were
trying to escape from… which is why you went on vacation in the
All you have to show for you many thousands of dollars on your
vacation is some memories… and a few photos… Big deal. Wouldn't it
make more sense to invest in something of your own… that you can
access any time you want? Wouldn't you rather make use of your
paradise everyday… rather than one week out of the year? Does that
And have you priced a hot tub recently. Check it out and you'll
discover that on the average they are running in the neighborhood of
$7500 to $8000…for a bloomin' hot tub that, after the first couple
months gets most its use from cleaning, not from bathing.
Remember, the reason why you bought your house in the first place?
You were tired of renting your future… and you wanted ownership… and
the ability to design your house. Well, why continue to just RENT
your vacations. Why not invest in them? Why continually keep paying
for only a week's worth of enjoyment.
You can enjoy your Water Garden every day. Everyday when you come
home from work… it's sitting there waiting for you. It's your
sanctuary. It's your place of refuse. It's your own private getaway.
Don't you deserve more that just a week long vacation? If you
skipped just two vacations, your paradise would be paid for. Yes,
that's right, just the cost of two vacations you pay for your
paradise. That's two weeks of enjoyment traded for a lifetime of
The choice is up to you.
You can feel free to call our pond construction headquarters
to talk to our staff. They are not sales people, so you don't have to worry about being
pressured to buy. We get tons of referrals from our other customers,
so we don't have to be pushy. Our feeling is, either you want to have
a waterscape paradise or you don't. It's your decision.
