7 Best Pond Companies in Indianapolis

Outdoor Living


If you truly want a backyard that is special and stands out in the crowd, there is no better way to set yourself apart than by adding an absolutely gorgeous pond to the mix. Ponds are important pieces of the outdoor puzzle because they add things that nothing else can. They bring animals into your yard, add another layer of sound, allow you to have different kinds of plants, and they are all natural, which means that if you want, you can set up the pond so that it looks natural.

Now, ponds are also a little tricky. If you want, you can try to create one on your own. However, you’ll probably end up with a mosquito breeding ground and a lot of algae. In order to get a pond that is memorable for the right reasons, you’ll want to contact a professional. We suggest these Indianapolis pond companies:

1. Cool Ponds

Cool Ponds is a company that focuses on creating absolutely gorgeous ponds that will last a long time. They don’t really do the cooking cutter molds. Instead, they try to build charming ponds that are unique and special.

Their team is extremely knowledgeable and will walk you through every step of the profess. Even better, they will be there for you when you have any questions after the installation is finished.

They will also build pondless waterfalls, which is one of the safest ways to add a water feature to your yard if you have children or pets that you don’t want to have to worry about falling into the water.

Hoosier Aquatic Services is the last, but certainly not the least company on our list. Their dedication to the pond industry is incomparable and their work ethic is superior. However, where they excel isn’t necessarily ponds – while those are definitely still up there. The fountain work at Hoosier Aquatic Services is what really pushes them to the top of the list.

Fountains can be really tricky, but they can also be what sets your backyard apart from any other. If a fountain is something that you absolutely need in your pond, give this team a call.


Stick with Menchhofer for Your Tree Care Needs

Menchhofer Tree Care might not be able to install ponds, but we can be an integral part of your pond maintenance program. Trees tend to drop debris into ponds, which can really get them out of whack when it comes to algae levels. Instead of trying to fight the problem over and over again, it might be best to fight the cause. Our team will prune around ponds and lakes so that you don’t have as much debris falling into the water.

We can also help you get ready for the pond by removing trees and grinding down stumps that will get in the way or create problems later on. Give us a call and we can give you a free estimate and set up a time to get the work done before your other contractors get there.

  1. I reached out to Aquatic Services of Indiana when my pond started growing all sorts of strange weeds and they sent a guy out and had it treated the same week. I now have them coming by twice a month and my pond looks perfect year round!
