We LOVE the waterfall — it has enhanced our backyard living tremendously. We find ourselves out on the deck most every night now, enjoying the peaceful sounds and nice view. I am so glad that you suggested a pondless option — its exactly what we wanted at half the cost of the other quote we had gotten for a ponded waterfall from a popular local garden center. And as I learned from you, much less maintenance and upkeep! Your crew did a great installation; working with Pond Doctor from start to finish was an easy and pleasant experience- thanks again!

Our Pond

Our recently purchased house came with a poorly maintained Koi pond. Jeremiah and Roberto transformed our muck filled pond into a crystal clear oasis ready to accept new fish. The onsite team was very friendly as they cleaned the pond. They inspected the wall and liner and repaired some of the low wall points. They worked efficiently but were very patient in taking time to answer all of my novice pond owner questions. They also provided professional advice from what pond equipment they would recommend, to plant and aquatic life suggestions, to pond maintenance and winterizing advice. My family is very excited to have our pond looking beautiful again and often stop by the window to admire it. Thank you Pond Doctor, we will certainly call you for our pond needs and recommend you for any pond needs!

Waterfall Repair

The Pond Doctor did a great job power washing my pond and replacing a broken pump!

Great Job on my waterfall

The Pond Doctor and his team did a great job in rebuilding my waterfall and water feature. Even came out and fixed it when the water-level started to drop (because of my actions, not their build). Looks great and is attracting all kinds of great songbirds.

our Pond

The greatest blessing for us as pond people has been with the tremendous group of guys with the Pond Doctor!!!! They are creative and on top of their game...friendly and always going the extra mile! There isn't a pond group I would rather work with!!! Thanks guys for always being there for us!!! :o)

by Teri Larriva on The Pond Doctor

Called to explain my pond was needing to be topped off more often.they came out to check and suggested instead of patching constantly redoing pond. the next week work was started and finished within 2 days and is awesome. Jeremey and Curtis were professional and hard workers. Knew what they were doing and educated me to pond care and why they were using methods they used. Will continue to use for pond cleaning

Schoolhouse 18 Gardens pond

A big thank you to Mark King for volunteering to fix the pond at the Marshall Schoolhouse 18 Master Gardener Demonstration Gardens. Our pond was in sad shape and in need of lots of repairs. We are an all volunteer group and did not have the budget to hire a pond company. Mark, the Pond Doctor, stepped up to the plate and volunteered his time, his staff and his supplies to fix our pond at no cost. It now looks absolutely amazing and running better than it ever has before. Thank you Pond Doctor. The Fauquier and Rappahannock County Schoolhouse 18 Master Gardeners love The Pond Doctor!!!

Pond Install/Construction

Mark King or "Pond Doctor" installed a 17 x 20 water garden or pond in my backyard. The result: "A work of art." Pond had a ten inch water fall approximately 2 foot wide waterfall, surrounded by large stone some four-five hundred pounds. The result was impressive. All visitors attest to my comments. Please contact me, dave okane at I would love to provide you a personal tour. Price was fair, quality was top notch, crew was professional. Mark even brought me koi. My project was a fifteen year dream completed July 2016. Thanks Mark

No more leaking!

The Pond Doctor crew (I am so bad with names! - Curtis & Jeremy?) came and quickly discovered what the problem with the pond was and fixed it. No leaks since July 8th! A less reputable company would have wanted to rip everything out and charge for a new pond. THANK YOU for being honest and efficient.

Peaceful Foundation

I had a very messy water treatment in my backyard. I was
referred to The Pond Doctor by a landscaper. After making a
phone call to Mark King, his son came to my house to assess
the situation and give me ideas. They also referred me to their website to get ideas. After giving the OK to proceed
and signing the contract, the assembling of the foundation was started and completed a week later. The "work" crew was incredible!! They removed the old equipment and excess dirt and rocks and installed the stone fountain with lighting. They were knowledgeable, helpful and very efficient. I would recommend The Pond Doctor to anyone who
wants a new look in their backyard!

by Lucinda on The Pond Doctor
Very pleased!

Mark and his team far exceeded my expectations.
Had a leak in my 15 year old pond so decided to have it rebuilt by The Pond Doctor. Beautiful design and execution.
Mark has a great staff that is competent and courteous.
Pleasant experience--especially compared to other company I used in the past.

Great Advise

My pond has been leaking for some time and getting progressively worse...I had tried my best to stop the leak from occurring, but this year the leak had to be properly fixed. I asked Mark if he would address my needs and he suggested we trouble shoot the system first. After few days of Mark advising me and getting my feedback on the situation, and re-advising me, I was able to find my problem and resolve it. Mark took the time to help me, even though he received no benefit from it. In my 23 years of working with many different vendors and contractors (construction industry), I can say that it is very difficult to find a contractor that truly understands, integrity and customer service. Mark has demonstrated this to me, and ironically, I'm not really a customer yet.

Mark thanks so much for your help and taking the time to listen and give advise; not many people would take the time to do that, and I greatly appreciate it.

Great job

I was in dire need of better filtration and did not want to redo my pond. We were on the verge of getting rid of it and filling it in. Then I talked to mark and sent him some pictures. Had the guys out to clean the pond and they discovered my old filter was cracked and way too small for my pond that came with the house when we bought it. Then the guys came out and had a few suggestions to improve the water quality. They installed a "bog system" that pulls water from one end and sends it to the other for natural plant filtration. My pond is now clear, the fish are thriving, and we are very happy. Had a few upcharges to add aeration which they forgot to add into the quote and we added lights at the install. Overall, really happy. Took longer than originally estimated and we lost our largest fish, but would rather have it done right than rushed. The guys were very responsive and came out to check on the pond a few days after they completed the job. Had a couple punch items that were taken care of immediately.

by Judy Metcalf on The Pond Doctor

We had The Pond Doctor totally redo our old pond and design is gorgeous - pond is now larger with several waterfalls - construction team so competent, easy to work with and communicated very well with us during the project - new design is also much easier in the maintenance department - our fish are really enjoying their new habitat!!

Pond to fountain

After dealing with the pond from hell for over two years, landscaper did a horrific job, Mark recommended we convert the pond over to fountain bowls. After partially demo'ing the pond the guys filled it in and installed all the below ground equipment, filled it in more then installed the bowls. I now have a great water feature instead of a leaking eyesore.

Great Work

My wife and I recently purchased a new home with an existing problem. Unfortunately, it needed work. Mark and his team did an outstanding job in a timely fashion getting the pond back into working order. They also did some redesign work that really enhanced the pond.

HEAL Foundation Review

I want to thank Mark and his team for having the vision and the heart to build a "serenity area" for the HEAL foundation-- serving veterans suffering from post-traumatic stress through Equine Assisted Psychotherapy.
What a gift Mark is. Mark has handled my extensive ponds/waterfalls for many years and he is outstanding in his work, honest, hardworking and attentive. He cares deeply about his end product. In September I discovered a whole new side of him-- his compassion for others.
Thank you Mark and please thank your team! See you in the Spring!

Tight Fit

We had a small pond that needed expanding. But our space was tight and what space there was was bordered by mature landscaping with signifcant root beds that could not be disturbed. Mark and his team (his team is great too) performed magic. They put in a great pond that fits naturally into the existing landscaping and hardscape. We now have a beautiful water feature right off our patio with fish our daughters can feed. This was a challenging job that Mark dove into and figured out the best options. As others have said, he also is focused on your happiness. He came back to move an electrical outlet whose placement I was not happy with at no extra charge. Great guy, great team.

by Neta Moye and Claus Langfred on The Pond Doctor
Absolutely amazing!

We asked Mark and his guys to build us a large stream and waterfall, and they exceeded our expectations in EVERY WAY! The quality of the design, and the attention to detail just absolutely blew us away. We genuinely do not believe there is anyone in the NoVA or larger DC area that could have done a better job. Mark's obsessive desire to make sure we were 100% pleased with everything was an absolutely pleasure to experience - and something that seems far from the norm in this town. We would - without reservation - recommend The Pond Doctor to anyone needing a water feature built or maintenaned.
