Your Lake Charlevoix Pond Builders

This homeowner has brought verdant green abundance into their yard. This waterfall is well loved and appreciated. The wildlife she sees around her pond and waterfall bring her joy all spring, summer and fall. Song birds, frogs, fish, dragon flies... water brings life into your yard. 

We aim to create a personal oasis for every client. Your wants and desires will shape the creation we bring to your landscaping or home. Serving Boyne City, Charlevoix, Petoskey, Harbor Springs and all of Northwestern Michigan we are your premier pond designer, builder, supplier and maintainer. 

Give Waterpaw Ponds a call today to schedule your consult for a spring build in 2017!

Moby Koi...?

"Say, you are in the country; in some high land of lakes. Take almost any path you please, and ten to one it carries you down in a dale, and leaves you there by a pool in the stream. There is magic in it." Herman Melville Moby Dick

  When sunset hits on the weekend you know where everybody and every event is going to be in a coast city - On the shore, in the park overlooking the water. People spend all week waiting for the weekend on the boat, at the beach, on the river.... Those of us with ponds on our property or in our homes find respite there when we can't get to the bigger water. Think about the last vacation you took. Was there water there? What do you feel when you spend time near, on or in water? For most of humanity being close to water is built into ritual and cultural identity. 

Often, people tell me that what we created for them initially as an aesthetic addition to their homes or yards has become a daily necessity for them. When they travel they often set up camera's to keep an eye on the #waterfall and #koi. When they come home they grab a glass of something, the dogs, the spouse and go to the pondside. It's not normally why they installed the pond. But, it's what happens. We often steer our clients toward designs they didn't think about and paths that meander through the site we designed to amplify the sound of the water as you travel the yard. The ponds, waterfalls, streams and fountains become a yard experience - the sound, scent and view of the water become the heart jewel of the yard and their home rituals. 

Join the #pondlifestyle with @waterpawllc and let's design your ritual for your indoor pond this winter or your outdoor pond to be installed Spring 2017! 



Daylight Savings Time... Get a Flashlight!

As the weather turns the autumnal corner we here at Waterpaw Ponds in Northern Michigan are still installing. The cold weather doesn't slow us down - in fact it speeds us up so we can stay warmer while outside. Time changes also mean we have to get a little creative about site lighting as our work day doesn't end until 6 but it's dark by 5 around here. Headlamps, flashlights, flood lights, the job has to get done. We are going to be busy this November and we are getting our gloves deep into the mud. If you are ready to join the Pond Lifestyle but think it can't be built this fall - Yes it can! In fact we can even offer you a fall discount of 10% for any backyard pond, fountain, waterfall or sculpture installed before December 14, 2016.
