Ponds are Beautiful works of art that are dotted around the landscapes of Fayetteville, Hope Mills, Pinehurst, Southern Pines, NC (North Carolina). This area is known as the Sandhills, often time you will hear the weather stations refer to this section of NC as the Sandhills. The reason for this names is because we are right in the middle of to prominent geographic location the coastal plans with all the sand and beaches to the east and the Piedmont to pour west. This mix of sandy soil creates some challenges when designing and building a water feature.
When a designing a pond there are certain things that you may have to be aware of...
1. Adding shelves to your pond...
We build ponds with shelves all the time that is our SOP. in this area it is more important than ever. Shelves add stability to the ponds walls and helps reduce the the chances of the walls of the pond collapsing before you put water into the pond.
3. Boulder size in placement
When working in very sandy soil you have to worry about the size and placement of the rocks that you are using. When placing very large boulder around 500lbs or greater take the time to compact the soil and maybe add a clay soil mix to help stabilize the soil. And you do not want a 500lb boulder shifting once the soil settles from all the construction

A Pond or Water Garden as it is sometimes referred to is made up of many different parts and when those parts are assembled together correctly, they form a beautiful and naturalistic work of art that changes personality with the time of day, the change of the seasons, and the moods of mother nature .
Most people think of outdoor grills and patio furniture when they think of outdoor living spaces. Once the outdoor meal is over, what more is there to do in your backyard? While many homeowners turn to pools or hot tubs, they’re discouraged by the amount of maintenance and chemicals required with these amenities.
Wonderful water feature to enjoy
For the price of a hot tub, a beautiful ecosystem pond can be installed, and less maintenance is required thereby providing more time to relax and enjoy friends and family.
Pools and hot tubs utilize heavy use of chemicals to stay clean.
An Ecosystem Pond maintains clarity and quality of water through a balance of fish, plants, aeration, and filtration, often eliminating the need for chemicals. In northern climates, outdoor grills and similar features are typically enjoyed during the warmer months, whereas a water feature can be enjoyed year-round.
