The key to creating a working and worry free pond that is both beautiful and healthy for plants and fish is planning. A famous business man once said that plans are useless but planning is invaluable. Meaning even the best laid plans can fail to unexpected circumstances or changes in available resources. We've created a number of guides and gathered information on a vast majority of our products to aid you in planning your pond. For every gallon of water in your pond you can spend anywhere from $1 to $5 on construction & filtration. So a 1000 gallon pond could cost anywhere between $1000 and $5000 to build depending on equipment and complexity. Under our Equipment tab on the left you will find a number of useful pages for planning your pond including an outline, in the Equipment Selection Guides
link, of steps you can take in planning a new pond. If you have any questions please don't hesitate to contact us, that is why we are here after all.
