The Pond Gnome's Story
The Pond Gnome works with Arizona homeowners who want to spend time enjoying their outdoor living space! The vast majority of our clients reside in the North Phoenix, Paradise Valley, Scottsdale, Cave Creek, and Carefree areas of town, as well as Glendale, Peoria, and Sun City.
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. 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 thousands of Koi ponds, water gardens, waterfalls, and streams for clients in Arizona, and even a couple in Nevada using Aquascape Professional-grade product line. 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.
