Building a Backyard Pond
Ponds can be built for many reasons. Our clients all have different goals, and working with such a variety of options keeps us on our toes! Active locally for many years, when it comes to pond excavation we can do it all—from design, to pond construction, to hauling earth and debris away from you. Every member of the Smiley Excavating LLC team is invested in the work they do. Therefore, they are fully licensed and bonded, and keep themselves updated on all the latest in the excavation industry. From techniques to tools to trends, if it’s out there, we know about it and will use it to provide even better service to our clients!
Full-Service From Start to Finish
The Smiley Excavating LLC team is like a family, and we treat our clients like an extension of that! Focused on the highest quality of customer service and workmanship from start to end is our goal on every job. Backyard pond construction may seem like all you need to do is dig a hole, but that’s not the case. There are multiple assessments to be done on any project to test soil and see what can realistically be built on your property. Not to mention, knowing where water mains are. And, zoning and permits? We know which you need and where to sign! Simplify your pond construction. Work with Smiley Excavating LLC.
Excavation for Any Pond
How many different kinds of ponds are there? As many as the imagination can come up with. Shallow or deep, dirt bottom or poured cement, minimal or wild—just like our clients—their ponds are unique to their personal style.
- - Fish ponds
- - Natural/wildlife ponds
- - Swimming ponds
Every one of these needs different excavation techniques. For example, did you know that a fish pond only needs to be two feet deep, unless it houses koi, then it needs to be three feet deep? And swimming ponds should be 10 feet deep, meaning we recommend them only if you have a larger property.
Building a Pond
When we say that digging a pond isn’t just about digging a pond, we’re telling the truth. There are three considerations we go through during every build process.
Your first assessment is free! That’s when we’ll meet and figure out your basic pond needs. But the first day on the job starts with a soil assessment.
Imagine accidentally stepping into a pond and having your leg go straight to the bottom. Now you can understand the need for ledges!
From rocks to bedrock to sand, there’s a lot going on under your yard. Thankfully we’re equipped to deal with it all.
