Perhaps you have been to my website a time or two & have seen our catch phrase "It's Time for Zen." This might seem like an odd phrase for water feature designers and builders. However, we believe that what we do brings calm, joy and zen to our clients.
We frequently install ponds and features for people living on Lake Michigan, Lake Charlevoix, Walloon Lake & Crooked Lake. Often, the reaction of people when they hear this is "why would anybody with whole lake want or need a pond?" Our answer is in the actions of our clients. As soon as that pond is full of water they are already playing with it: moving rocks, planting lilies, naming their fish, netting out leaves. This isn't simply an aesthetic addition to their view it is an interactive part of their everyday.
Much like a zen sand garden the act of tending to a pond is about meditation and soothing behavior. Our service techs are some of the most chill people on the crew- they get to spend their work day in moving meditation near and in water.
Often, we will witness some of the gruffest clients turn into the softest calmest people when they are at the edge of their pond. We look at the building of a pond for a person or family as an act of giving back. Our ponds light a part of the person who bought it. We believe that our designs make the world a better place, one frog and fish at a time.
