Onsite design /construction advice and options for landscape professionals, commercial and residential clients.
Design is the first step to a successful water feature. Simplicity and boldness are key while laying out the initial concept. Natural topography often determines the location of the pond and waterfalls. View points, scale in relation to the size of the area and buildings, and pond style play an important role in effective design.
The success of a well constructed water feature is dependant on skilled builders. Forethought and careful planning should precede the decision to construct a backyard water feature.
Service & Maintenance
The largest deterrence preventing water feature construction is the notion that ponds require excessive maintenance. In truth, a properly designed and balanced pond will usually require less maintenance than a similar sized garden or lawn.
We provide Service and Maintenance for our own projects only.

Aaron landscaped our yard in the spring of 2009 so our son could be married on a beautiful day in a gorgeous setting. Creativity is Aaron’s middle name. He and his crew worked very hard constructing the focal point (our pond), patios, walkways, gazebo and trellis’, all in a timely fashion. The plantings were carefully chosen and placed. It is our special oasis in the heart of the city. There is nothing more relaxing than the sound of a waterfall/pond on a lovely summer day while reading a book in a wonderland. Thank you so much Aaron and crew.

After years of maintenance and little use, the time had come to fill in the swimming pool and turn the back yard into a natural, maintenance free zone. We solicited ideas from a number of local landscape designers, but none provided a solution that sparked our interest. A referral from a good friend whose neighbour had recently undertaken a major landscaping project, resulted in our introduction to Aaron. Within 30 minutes of wandering through the property, Aaron verbally described his vision for our backyard renewal. We were amazed! A few days later we were presented with sketch and price estimate. After a few meetings where Aaron clarified his design and answered our questions – the project was commenced. Over a four month period, Aaron and his partner Nick, became part of our family; including entertaining our grandsons on the earth moving equipment during their visit from San Diego. In the end, our back yard has has been turned into a natural playground, including an amazing 4-layered waterfall flowing into a goldfish and koi pond, a 3-hole putting green and an array of tastefully selected plants and shrubs. Needless to say, we are delighted with the result and would pleased to recommend Aaron and his company’s services to anyone who wants a masterpiece built on their property.

Having Aaron design our waterfall and pond was a wonderful event. He had many great ideas and got the job done with excellence. I would recommend him to my friends and family!
Aaron Wing has done an amazing job to turn a challenging lot into a jewel of a water and garden scape with eight cascading waterfalls spilling into a curved streambed ending in a 5 foot deep pond with sidebanks, situated along a patio. We are thoroughly delighted with his vision and what was a very challenging execution, and are receiving rave reviews from all who see it. We have no hesitation recommending Aaron for any size job involving hard landscape and waterscape, planning and execution.
