Our farm pond construction techniques stand out. When you see other ponds then see a Spring Creek designed farm pond,you'll see the difference. Our farm pond construction techniques benefit from 30 years of scientific experience. farm pond construction goes way past engineers; it takes fishery biologists / farm pond consultants.

The Challenge:
Farm ponds are thought by many to be simple basins to hold water and offer some recreation. As such very few farm ponds are built with sufficient forethought to be successful for the long term without expensive rebuilding or succumbing to a great deal of work and expense to maintain. The "pond of a lifetime" most often becomes the pond of the decade or maybe two. Most farm ponds fail due to siltation and choking with weeds. These problems are easily avoided via forethought and quality farm pond design.

Every location has a unique set of geological and biological circumstances that influence the longevity of a farm pond. Planning and designing for the future allows us to avoid the problems most ponds face in the form of silting in or choking with weeds, thus eliminating not only the source of demise of the pond, but the source of major maintenance expense over the lifetime of a farm pond.

We are Biologists who design natural farm ponds fishing ponds and clear water natural swimming ponds by using creative scientific techniques and practical experience in creating the most cost effective farm ponds possible from a recreational, economic and aesthetic aspect. Forethought and Knowledge are our primary tools. This website is full of practical and technical information to help clarify your understanding of farm ponds and their challenges of:

  • Optimizing farm pond construction cost*
  • Farm pond water quality and nutrient issues
  • Farm pond siltation
  • Preventing flood damage
  • farm pond dam safety and cost reduction
  • Weed control in farm ponds
  • Farm pond water supply issues
  • Farm ponds for fishing ponds and other recreational uses
  • Fire prevention ponds
  • Maximizing the life of a farm pond

* including future savings of dredging and restoration expense wasted on poorly designed ponds.

Thoughtful farm pond design is going to address each of these issues to provide the most cost effective farm pond for a clean water supply, quality recreation and the longest possible life of the pond.

A quality farm pond design will prevent pond dredging, dam rebuilding and most ongoing farm pond maintenance issues. There are way too many poorly designed farm ponds that require dredging every decade. We design farm ponds to last lifetimes without dredging.

As we are often quoted: cheap advice, build it twice! ©

When we discuss farm ponds, we are usually talking about a less demanding set of goals than our other work in swimming ponds, trout ponds, landscape ponds and fishing lakes where we sharply focused on investing in water clarity and aesthetics. In designing farm ponds we are not as demanding of our water supply because high quality well water or spring water is not always available for most farm ponds. We do design farm ponds for clean safe water; they are just not as crystal clear as our other pond and lake designs.
