The Pond Gnome's Story
The Pond Gnome works with Arizona homeowners who want to spend time enjoying their outdoor living space!
When we began our career in landscape contracting in early 2000 (as The Garden Gnome), we knew that we wanted to promote sustainable desert-wise outdoor environments for our customers. We also knew that we could create a lush tropical feel using native and desert-adapted plants because we had done it in our own yard. Desert-wise landscaping does NOT have to be a barren wasteland with a few cacti punctuating the scene, nor does a tropical feel have to involve tender water-hungry plants that hate our alkali native soil. We wanted to create human habitats that mirrored the riparian areas that avid hikers and campers stumbled upon while exploring our great State. This, of course, involves the use of natural, organic water features that come as close to Mother Nature's design as possible.
As our little company grew, it became apparent that ecosystem ponds and living water features were our true love, and we evolved to become The Pond Gnome. Since that time, we have designed, built, and remodeled over 500 ponds, Koi ponds, water gardens, waterfalls, streams, and rainwater harvesting systems for clients in Arizona, and even a couple in Nevada. We also work with like-minded landscape architects, designers, and contractors to compose outdoor environments that reflect a contemporary, more enlightened use of a homeowner's land for the betterment of the Earth, as well as the benefit of the occupant. To that end, we would be delighted to discuss your vision for your personal outdoor space! The Pond Gnome's mission is to create exceptional outdoor living environments.
