How Much Does a Pond / Waterfall Cost?

Serving St. Charles, Naperville, Chicagoland, Illinois (IL)

One of the most common questions we receive when customers call us is "How much does that cost?" As you can imagine the answer varies depending on a number of factors. To help you visualize what a pond, pondless waterfall or landscape fountain costs we have provided some helpful information below. We hope that this will help you when you start thinking about adding a water feature to your landscape.

We have installed water features for customers for as little as $3,000 up to $150,000. While most customers don't want to share their budget initially, they generally have an idea of what they want to invest into a water feature. To help you with this decision we have decided to group our water features by price range. All Prices listed are installed cost that includes all materials and labor to install the feature.

Note: If your budget is less than $3,000 we have options available as low as $250 for you to "Get Your Feet Wet" with water features. Contact us to learn more. Be sure to let our sales rep know what price range you are looking for and we will tailor a solution to your needs and budget.
