What are the best pond companies in Kansas City?

At Good Earth Water Gardens, it’s our goal to provide clients with beautiful, low-maintenance water features and exceptional customer service. But we also aim to educate people so they can make an informed buying decision.

We’re not going to be a perfect fit for everyone. Sometimes the timing or budget aren’t right. Maybe our ideas don’t match. There can be other reasons, too.

If you decide that Good Earth is not a good fit, that’s OK. However, we want you to know some other reputable pond companies in the area who are qualified to properly install or maintain your water feature.

Every year, we receive calls from frustrated homeowners. Their water features don’t function properly, leak, or are maintenance nightmares. Often, we find out the person (or company) who installed these water features wasn’t knowledgeable in construction techniques and filtration. To minimize this from happening, we wanted to share the top 10 best pond companies in Kansas City.

The following companies aren’t in any particular order. We selected companies that specialize in water features and have the experience and/or industry certifications that make them qualified. These are also companies that maintain and install decorative, aesthetically appealing water features and not farm or retention ponds.
