Lake Pond and Stream Planning Design Construction Management
STYLES OF PONDS
Spring Creek can assist you with a variety of pond projects including:
We are Biologists who design completely natural ponds by using creative scientific techniques that result in the highest quality aquatic habitats possible from aesthetic, biological and economic aspects. Knowledge is our primary tool instead of equipment, filters, chemicals and additives. Take time to read our information in this site to learn about building ponds and preservation of native plants, animals and aquatic habitats. We offer educational information on subjects such as native Pond Plants and Ponds and Lakes Lessons.
The Pond Design and Planning Guide , Pond Faqs , Pond Construction Faqs, Pond Myths and Pond Liners pages are full of insights to help you understand the dynamics involved to develop the pond, stream or lake of your dreams.
Along with the trophy fishing ponds and lakes we have become well known for, we also design:
Along with the trophy fishing ponds and lakes we have become well known for, we also design:
Since we had already developed techniques to make a pond colder than normal, we realized we can also design ponds to be warmer than usual to make a better pond for swimming. Our swimming ponds are becoming increasingly popular since the water stays as clear as the rest of our designs, and our swimming ponds cost less than a traditional pool of similar size! There are also the added benefits that you can have a beach along a swimming pond, as well as ponds are very low maintenance when built correctly. Fish are welcome in our swimming pond designs. Additionally, our ponds can be integrated into the heat pump for your home to save on your heating and air conditioning. Your house stays cooler while your pond warms for swimming. Read more in our Swimming Ponds page.
With careful planning and design, we have developed techniques to allow certain areas of a pond to warm for swimming while keeping a large cold area for fish like trout. This all-in-one design is our most versatile habitat for people and fish.
While our reputation is built on complex larger ponds and lakes for fishing, our proprietary techniques lend themselves very well to the more personal size ponds used in residential landscaping. We have developed a special pond design technique for very small ponds to maintain heavier populations of ornamental fish without the significant added expense of pond filters. These science based techniques allow the owner to save money when compared to the usual liner and filter type pond designs. Our pond designs utilize principles of aquatic biology and chemistry to be much more efficient and lower maintenance than the typical garden pond. Best of all is the fact that your garden pond will be completely natural. You will have no need for commercial additives and your pond will maintain itself naturally.
Spring Creek is leading a trend towards natural water features and landscape ponds for public places such as housing developments, office complexes and golf courses. With our techniques, we provide pristine quality environments that will support fish and wildlife that bring nature into the city. These habitats become star features that attract commerce while providing fish and wildlife habitat. Our goal is to benefit both business and the natural environment.

We look forward to discussing the possibilities of bringing your water to life!

Ornamental fish deserve the best clear water high quality ponds low maintenance.
Ornamental fish color is best in natural habitat with natural food. Ornamental fish health is also better in natural habitat.
Natural is the only way we design our aquatic habitats Natural fish do not eat pellets, so why do people think they have a natural fish pond when they feed the fish? Natural design by Biologists brings quality aesthetics and healthy fish. Natural also means no annual cleaning. The bottom line is do you want a habitat that looks real?
Natural aesthetics by Biologists who create aquatic habitats. So natural that you cannot tell they are man made and the fish are very natural too. Natural aesthetics are a cornerstone to Biologists designs. Natural means natural building materials, not plastic or rubber. Waterfeatures in nature have never had rubber or plastic liners.
Natural Landscape ponds and lakes by Biologists are more natural looking and functioning than habitats that landscape architects are building. Natural landscape water features are inspired by nature, not suburban parks. Natural landscaping means natural materials and not synthetics, plastic or rubber. Aquatic landscaping for natural aesthetics is what we specialize in.
Imagine an urban landscape with trout thriving in a natural landscape habitat. The striking beauty of a natural landscape design in an urban environment has a profound effect on those who come in contact with it. water features emotionally calm people, natural waterfeatures are even more soothing. Large Ponds mean large budgets. Budgets for Large Ponds can rival the cost of a house once they get to several acres. As Biologists, we give you the most for large ponds investment and cost of a large pond cost.

Garden Ponds: Natural Garden Ponds by Biologists The garden pond industry is wrought with misinformation regarding pond design. The writers are severely lacking in scientific knowledge of aquatic habitats. Most of them come with a background of hobbyists. Natural biological ponds require much more design knowledge than ponds with filters, but biological ponds are much more aesthetically pleasing with less maintenance.
