If a picture is worth 1,000 words, then how much is a video worth? Usually our project recaps include an explanation of our process and the installation details, but for this koi pond and patio install, we thought that we would let the finished project do all the talking. It's no secret that water feature are our favorite element to build in Hampton Roads and beyond, so this one - complete with a fire pit and patio - was the perfect project for us.
If you're interested in the details, here they are: We installed a 14x10 Tranquility Elite koi pond. Complete with underwater lights, water auto fill valve, and an auto doser. We also carved stone steps into the landscape along with a 38’ retention wall and two patios.
Our goal, as always, was for this family to enjoy their outdoor space as a second home right outside their home. Let us know if this is something you would want in your backyard!
Recently, Micah got to appear on the Hampton Roads show to talk about all the various options for outdoor lighting. He covers everything from the type of lights we use (low-voltage lighting that takes no more power than a cell phone!) to the surprisingly small number of lights we typically use and how these lights compliment water features that we install.

Back in spring of 2021, we started to build a large (over 32 feet long!) eco-system pond in a big backyard located in Suffolk, Virginia. We used a 2500 and a 6000 Aquascapes Signature Series biofalls for our pond filtration. Instead of the standard Aquascape 1000 skimmer we built an intake bay to allow for lower maintenance. We also incorporated two urns and plenty of color changing lights.
Now that the fall has come we finished the pond, and it's a beauty for sure! Video 1 will show more of our process, while the second video is a peaceful, beautiful look at this incredible water feature.
Let us know if YOU would want a pond that big if this was your backyard!
