Avoid Sticker Shock – Plan Your Project Going in and Stay Within Your Budget.
A recreational pond or lake can make a great addition to any landscape. Based on the general estimates of existing projects we can help you plan the budget.
How Much Does a Pond Cost?
Costs for a pond include:
- Water Source
Factors to determine costs:
- Pond size
- Watershed and site soil conditions
- Layout of the land
- Amount and distance required for spoils removal
- Lining requirements
- Equipment required
So what does it cost?
Most initial estimates will be based on the general size of your pond. A typical lined pond will range from $1.50-2.50/sq ft. A ½ acre pond general estimate is $33,000-55,000. After we meet to start defining the goals of the owner, we can start to narrow down the estimate to a more defined range.
