​The Pond Gnome

Ecosystem Fish/Koi Pond Design, Installation & Maintenance Services Contractor

​Phoenix, Scottsdale, Paradise Valley & Surrounding Areas, Arizona (AZ)

Backyard-KOI Pond Installation



A fish pond, or Water Garden, as it is sometimes referred to, is made up of many different parts and when those parts are assembled together correctly by a professional builder/installer, they form a beautiful and naturalistic work of art that changes personality with the time of day, the change of the seasons, and the moods of mother nature to enhance your home or business in The Phoenix & Scottsdale areas of Arizona. 


At The Pond Gnome we offer a wide array of water feature installation services, including ecosystem ponds, pondless waterfalls, fountainscapes and any combination of them all.

In order to have a successful water gardening experience, you must think systematically and understand the critical role of each ingredient in Mother Nature's recipe.

  • The fish nibble on the plant life (and everything else), including the algae.

  • In turn, the fish produce waste that, along with other forms of natural debris, fall to the pond's bottom.

  • Debris is broken down by the aerobic bacteria and the other microorganisms colonized on the rocks and gravel all over the pond bottom.

  • Once broken down, these substances are absorbed as nutrition by the plants.

  • The plants grow and are once again nibbled on by the fish ... 'round and 'round it goes, infinitely.

So, in a naturally balanced water garden, you have this never-ending aquatic circle of life where all parts complement the others, and play critical roles in the pond's natural born harmony.


Ponds in the Phoenix desert?!?!  Absolutely!  Riparian areas are scattered throughout the Sonoran desert, providing respite.  These include ponds, streams, and waterfalls.  Whether you're interested in an ecosystem pond, a disappearing pondless waterfall and/or stream, or rainwater harvesting, The Pond Gnome can create what you've been dreaming of!

Desert-wise, landscaping does NOT have to be a barren wasteland with a few cacti punctuating the scenery.  Nor does a tropical atmosphere require temperature-tender water-hungry plants ill-equipped to handle our alkali native soil.  You can have an outdoor environment that reflects a contemporary, more enlightened use of the land surrounding your home — for the betterment of the Earth AND your own well-being.
