Questions & Answers
Q: What advice would you give to a customer looking to hire a company like yours?
A: First check & see if they are registered home improvement contractors with the state, its the law that any contractor be registered. 2nd actually go to jobs they have completed & talk to the owner of the property. Sadly some contractors use pictures of jobs they really didnt do. 3rd Check & see if they are certified by the manufacturer for the installation of the work you are seeking to have done. 4th Are they members of a state association? 5th Are they members of a national association? 6th Do they truly understand what YOUR visions & desires are for the project? 7th What warranties do they provide (get them in writing)do they have a manufacturers warranty on products? If so what do you have to do if you need to use the warranty. Do they offer a workmanship warranty? If so what does it cover & whats excluded?

Projects  
Project Image 1 Washington Township  

This is a waterfall we rebuilt for a client. He had an existing pond that for years leaked, he just thought it was normal based on what his contractor told him. We rebuilt the entire stream (30') and created this waterfall for them.
Project Image 2 The 'HideAway'  

This is one of our award winning projects. This feature combines the elements & benifits of using a wetlands for filtration, includes a 11 x 16' pond and a 1,200 gallon rain water harvesting system. By drawing the captured rain water (which is run through the entire feature) we not only water the plants in the landscape but also have a natural source of fertilizer from the fish waste.
Project Image 3 Deb's Oasis  

This feature contains 6,000 gallons of water. The pond is filtered through 2 types of wetlands, the 1st one is in the pond and is considered a 'down flow' wetlands as the water is pulled down trough the gravel & plant roots before it's pumped up to the top falls. The 2nd wetlands is called an 'up-flow' wetlands since the water is 'pushed' up through the plant roots & gravel. This filtration method keeps the water very clear even with the fact that there are approximately 30 Koi ranging in size from 12" - 30". The feature also contains LED lighting through out the pond, stream & waterfalls for night time enjoyment.
Project Image 4 Plainsboro feature  

This pond is 11 x 16' with 2 waterfalls. The client wanted to stay within the principle of Fung Shui which dictates that water flow towards the home. However when you are on the patio area the falls were not visible so we added the 2nd falls with the theory that since the flow of the falls met and flowed towards the house once in the pond it was still within the Fung Shui principles. We achieved this by creating a flow rate of only 2000 gallons per hour from the 2nd falls & increasing the flow rate to 4000 gallon per hour from the 1st falls. In addition this feature also has LED lighting through out the pond, streams & waterfalls for night time enjoyment.
