Value in Professional Pond Maintenance -- What's in it for Me?
Many of our clients are pretty handy people, or gardeners in their right. They do all their own pond and water feature maintenance with very little, if any, help from us, except maybe their annual cleaning. They don’t feel that they need professional pond maintenance, as we have blogs and videos on just about everything they need to know. We love those clients, and do our best to enable them to be the self-sufficient kinds of folks that they want to be. We even teach an annual DIY Cleaning Seminar the second Saturday of every February, which they can attend for free.
For our clients who want more help than that, or just want the luxury of a worry-free pond, we offer maintenance programs to suit just about any need: weekly, bi-weekly, monthly, or quarterly. We like to say that we have programs for folks who want to do a little, a little more, or nothing at all!
So, what’s the value of having your pond or water feature professionally maintained? Is the service worth your hard-earned money? We have a whole bunch of clients who certainly think it is! So, here’s the rundown on why you might want to consider professional pond maintenance:
It will actually get done – consistently
You can enjoy a cocktail in peace without your spouse nagging you about pond maintenance
You don’t have to stick your hands into freezing cold water in the winter
You don’t take a chance on getting a sunburn during the summer
You won’t wrench your back pulling out a stand of plants that you let get out of hand because you were busy doing other things
You’ll have more time for all your hobbies, like your project car, biking, hiking, fishing, boating, b-ball, shopping, golf, etc.
You can spend more time with the family (this is totally up to you)
You’ll have more time to spend on the rest of your garden/landscape (or you could hire that done, too)
Having someone trained to monitor and maintain your aquatic plants and occasionally check up on your other aquatic life (frogs, toads, etc.)
Having someone checking on all of your water feature equipment and letting you know when they see something amiss before it becomes a disaster. While we can’t predict everything, we can head off a lot of issues with regular maintenance.
Peace of mind while you’re traveling – no worrying about the water level in your water feature, or your pump going out without anyone home, or your yard flooding unexpectedly, etc.
You can come home at the end of a crappy day and NOT have to do anything before you pop a top and decompress in the backyard by your pond, waterfall, or stream
If something goes wrong, we’ve got your back because our Platinum Program includes free emergency service, and our other programs include priority consideration for any service outside of your normal visits
It’s got to be done anyway, so why not treat yourself a little? Sit back & enjoy!
