Recent Review: The job went very well. The pond was drained and cleaned. The fish were kept in a rubbermaid tote and after water was put back into the pond, an additive was added to keep the algae to a minimum. The fish were put back into the pond. All the plants were returned to the pond also.  I have gotten many comments on my pond since it has been cleaned. It looks great!

GARDEN'S EDGE
Recent Review: Everything went very well until after the installation. The consultation was great, they seemed to know exactly what I wanted for my pond. It was to be 11 foot by 16 foot, and 3 feet deep to support my koi. It was to have a bog garden, which led to a small creek, then to a waterfall back into the pond. They were very professional, and built a gorgeous pond with a bog garden and waterfall just like we wanted! My wife and I were thrilled with how it looked, we absolutely loved our pond! Now for the problems....Some of which still plague the pond to this day. It developed a leak somewhere by the next Spring, the one way check valve had stopped working completely...Allowing the bog garden to completely drain back into the pond when it was shut off, and along the back of the pond..The liner was cut too short and the pond would overflow there instead of the built in overflow that is in the skimmer box. They came out to take a look, and told me that there were too many plants in the bog garden (which they put in), and if they took some out and thinned them out... It would stop the leak. I told them to go ahead and do that...They also replaced the check valve with another one. The pond seemed fine for about another month, maybe two....And it then developed another leak, this time, we could run the pond for about two days and the level would be down to the point that the pump would be sucking air....They came out again after I called...Only this time it took them two to three weeks to get out to check it out. That then put my pond out of it's warranty coverage period. So...I would basically have to pay to have the leak fixed this time, or anything else for that matter. While they were here, they tried to talk me into dumping another $10,000.00 into the pond by enlarging the bog garden, putting in a bigger pump and skimmer, and upgrading my lighting to l.e.d. lighting. I was thinking to myself....I already spent a rather large amount of money having this pond built, and it's been nothing but problems already....Why in the world would I sink another small fortune into something that wasn't done right in the first place? So....Being the rather peaceful person that I tend to be....I just let it go and started calling other pond places to try to get the problems fixed right. I had two different pond professionals out to see the pond. Both of them told me that corners were cut and a few things were not done correctly. I have had the skimmer wier rebolted, extra rock work done, another check valve put in, the creek bed lowered because it was too shallow, a new fall rock put in (The old one was not done correctly and started sagging and leaning to the left really bad.) My pond still has a leak of about 4 inches of water lost overnight....The rock work the gardens edge did has caved in on the left side of the pond near the waterfall. I was told by the last two pond professionals that since the new bolts on the waterfall weir didn't fix the leak, that the pond needs a new liner put in. Since I am now in financial ruins, and have some very serious health issues that I am currently dealing with, I can't afford to have the pond fixed right....So, I guess I am now stuck with a pond that I will never be able to really enjoy. I later found out that the person who was in charge of installing my pond left the garden's edge on bad terms....Oddly enough...It wasn't very long after my pond was completed. I also found out that my pond is barely 20 inches deep, it's supposed to be 3 feet deep....They didn't ever seem to want to fix that from the beginning either after I said something about it. Don't get me wrong....Their work is beautiful upon completion, they are very nice and I enjoyed working with them....But I have been told by two other pond professionals that it wasn't done right....And since I am by no means a pond professional, I didn't know. Now I'm stuck with a pond that I can't use. Don't know why I waited so long to join Angie's list and write my review, but there you have my experience with The Garden's Edge.

Recent Review: They came gave an estimate. I got several. His was in the middle and he gave me a couple options. The one I chose was exactly what I wanted. It looks great. He did the work when he said he would. The problems that did come up he handled them professionally and quickly. I would recommend him for any pond, hardscaping, or landscaping services.

Recent Review: Brent responded in a timely manner and provided a written estimate and sketch based upon what I wanted and was willing to spend. He came in right on budget (actually a few dollars less) and both before and during the process he was attentive and responsive to all questions and concerns. It was completed in just under a day and a half. The pond is amazing. We love the sound of the waterfall and have received numerous compliments from the neighbors! I would definitely use them for any future landscaping projects.

Recent Review: They came every day as scheduled, in spite of rain.  They returned again, after the project, to make sure the fish and we were happy.  The pond was without circulating water.  The plants had escaped the broken pots and were growing from the muck on the bottom.  They removed the muck, reduced the plants to pots, patched the holes and rearranged the plants in a beautiful pattern.  Not one fish was lost!  We never could get an accurate count, they move too fast.  We estimate about 40-50 fish were removed and replaced.  The extra Irises are now in our flower garden.  We were hesitant to add lighting.  They were were right, the pond glows at night.  We have a waterfall, a fountain, lights and a tranquil place to unwind after a day at work.  We highly recommend Robert Read and Kevin Bryson at LiquidScape Designs for your big or small pond projects.  We will certainly call on them again for ours.

Recent Review: The initial consultations went well. They were agreeable and willing to redo the pond according to acceptable industry standards. After they kill many of our Koi and left the pond much below acceptable and agreed upon standards, they were unwilling to rectify the multitude of problems with their work. The owner, Adrian Kapp who we had our second consultation with, was asked to at least come to our home and see what issues we had with the pond. He never came. We documented all conversations and letters sent via certified mail. We had documentation from aquascape and other pond construction companies to back up our claim and even attempted to allow the case to be resolved on the day of our court case, but to no avail. We won our law suit in a York county court against them. They now have a claim of a judgment against them and also a claim of non-payment of that judgment. We also were not required to pay for any of the work done by C. E Pontz and sons.
