Customer Photo Story

Thanks to our customers Rex & Marietta for sharing some photos of their fabulous pond!

“Whether walking, wading, or swimming, I forget about everything else…..my senses are overcome by it’s tranquility.  There’s something hypnotic about it, like staring into a bonfire”. – Rex

“It’s impossible to mention just one favorite thing about our pond…the peaceful sound of the waterfalls, the beauty that blends our garden into nature, the sound of the frogs that have made it home singing in the summer evenings, the multiple varieties of song birds that have decided it’s the best bird bath in the neighborhood or having the fish follow me as I walk the pond edges like puppies waiting for a treat.  I guess I can sum it up by saying that I can’t imagine our yard without it!” – Marietta

Letter from the Pondless® Waterfall Winner

Note from Mark The Pond Guy: Every year, my company holds a drawing for a free Pondless® Waterfall. This year, the lady who won the Pondless® wrote this letter to us and I thought I would share it.

When Mark called me to say I’d won the pond, I was shocked, surprised & excited all at the same time.

But then I had to think about what I was going to do with a pond. My 1st thought was my back yard, but I already have a natural pond in my back yard.

Then I remembered that about 3 years ago my mom (JoAnne Brown) started this rock wall in front of my sisters house, (whom she lived with).

She wanted to build a waterfall & pond, but only got as far as the rocks before she passed away in July of ’08. So I called my sister & said we can finish mama’s waterfall & we can finally spread some of her ashes there. That wall has been her memorial & my sister Sheryl, her husband Lucky, myself & the entire family will be able to gather around & look at the wonderful beauty she has always cherished.

Thank you so much Mark & everyone at “The Pond Store” for bringing a little piece of Heaven into our hearts & allowing mama’s waterfall to be finished!

Thank you,


Before and After Photos – MaryLou’s Project

To Mark The Pond Guy

Mark, just a note to tell how wonderful my new water feature is. It brings such peace and serenity to


 my patio that is now a joy to sit out there in the evening and listen to the water falling over the falls into the pond.

I also would like to add that your crew who came out to build my new water feature were so kind, efficient, courteous and did a great job at cleaning everything up when they were through, almost like they had not even been there, the area was absolutely spotless.

I would be proud to recommend you and your wonderful crew to anyone who is planning to have a water feature added in their landscape.
