How much does a backyard pond cost to install?

Pond installation costs vary depending on the size and complexity of your pond project, as well as on whether you decide to do the dirty work yourself or pay someone to do it for you.

Cost of Do-It-Yourself Pond Installation

Complete professional-grade DIY Pond Kits start at around $900, plus rocks and gravel.  By the time you add in a few underwater lights, some pond plants like beautiful waterlilies and a few fish, you could expect to budget between $,1500 and $2,000 for a nice entry-level pond (about 100 to 200 square feet).

Cost of Professional Pond Installation

Splash Supply Company’s basic pond package – an up to 100-square-foot, 20-inch-deep pond with one 16- to 20-inch waterfall – starts at $5,900. Our most popular pond package – an up to 150-square-foot, 28-inch-deep pond with a 16- to 20-inch waterfall – starts at $8,600.

If a full pond isn’t for you, Splash Supply also offers disappearing waterfalls starting at 4,390, as well as fountainscapes starting around $3,490. If you want to go big - maybe 300-square-feet big - your costs would probably start around $18,600.

As with most things in life, cheaper isn't always better. Having your pond installed by a professional the first time will minimize issues like leaks and green water, and maybe save you thousands of dollars in repairs.

Service Costs

Service costs vary depending on the size and complexity of your water feature, how much work you want to do yourself, the severity of issues that need repaired and how often you want to have your pond serviced (cleaned, repaired, etc.) A visit from the Splash Supply team can range anywhere from $255 to more than $1,200 for routine cleaning and maintenance.
