Recreational Ponds:
What Makes Them So Amazing


Recreational Ponds Create Memorable Experiences

You’ve heard grandpa talk about it. The ole swimmin’ hole. The glorious hours he used to spend there after chores were done, cooling off on a hot summer afternoon. Perhaps the whole family went there on a Sunday afternoon for a picnic.

Well, how would you like to not only relive those same great times, but share them with your children, grandchildren, and friends? You can, with a recreational pond from Premiere Aquascapes!

Recreational ponds are the latest innovation in backyard water features and entertainment. Great looking, functional and fun, you owe it to yourself to see if a recreational pond will work for you.

Have Fun in Your Own Paradise

Perhaps you’ve always wanted a pool, a naturally landscaped backyard, or a relaxing koi pond. A recreational pond can combine all three!

Don’t settle for the common pool. They lack the ambiance and feeling a recreational pond can bring.

Recreational ponds look natural, with beautiful plantings around and in the water. It can have a waterfall, a stream, even fish.


These private paradises provide an environment that people love and it’s functional for all ages. Usually they are designed with a shallower area for plantings, they also contain a deep section for swimming. So whether you want to take the children for a swim, snorkeling, or you want to explore the deep, you can do to all.

If you like beaches, we can do that too! How about a gently sloping gravel beach leading into the swimming area, or a dock to jump from?


Increase Your Property’s Appeal

If you ever sell your home, can you imagine what potential buyers will say when they see your recreational pond? Sure, from the street it looks like a beautiful water feature and landscaped pond, but when they find out it is also a recreational pond, they will be ready to sign!

A great way to add even more value to your recreational pond is to add a deck and pool house nearby. Other features that buyers will appreciate include the low maintenance, eco-friendly way a recreational pond is designed to operate, and providing a source of water and protection for birds and wildlife.

Say Goodbye to High Maintenance & Harsh Chemicals

Everyone today is concerned about the effects of chemicals on our health and the environment.

With a recreational pond, you can forget about all that.

With a powerful biological filter, water jets, and skimmer to keep debris collected, a recreational pond operates kind of like a big aquarium.


With the addition of fish and plants, once you get a recreational pond balanced, nature will take over and keep the water clear, fresh and safe for kids, pets, and wildlife.

Maintenance is simple as well. But if you prefer, you can schedule regular checkups and maintenance from Premiere Aquascapes. We have all the expertise to not only install, but help you maintain your beautiful backyard recreational pond.

Recreational Pond Pricing

Recreational ponds are customizable and can developed in many ways. Most recreational ponds start at approximately $75,000. Expected costs vary due to size and options. A good rule of thumb is to estimate $165 per square foot. This will enable you to have a general starting point.

When you compare the cost of a recreational pond with a pool, you’ll realize how affordable and attractive a recreational pond is. With a swimming pool you will need to consider decking, concrete, chemicals, and more. Also, a recreational pond can be enjoyed year round, whereas a pool is limited to a few months a year.

A recreational pond can be an enjoyable, appealing, and worthwhile investment. Call us today to get more details about your own recreational pond.
