Since 1993 PondWorks, has been working with customers to provide the best solution for each project. We can assist with both residential and commercial projects that are large or small.
PondWorks, or at least its origins, began around 1993 when Brian Buchholtz expanded his interest in water gardening and began installing small garden ponds as a part-time job while attending college. As time went on, the business continued to grow but was still seasonal as Brian completed his studies at Philadelphia University where he graduated with a degree in architecture. After his graduation, PondWorks continued to grow both in size and scope building on experience and staying committed to providing quality installation and care.
The PondWorks staff believes that its broad experience with different types of water features as well as the understanding of the design and construction process sets us apart. PondWorks currently employs a dedicated and knowledgeable staff that provides regular services to nearly 300 businesses and residences in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware, New York, and Maryland. By fostering relationships with design professionals and industry-related installers, PondWorks has been able to continually expand its scope of design and construction work. While Garden and Koi pond construction and maintenance still constitute a large portion of our efforts, PondWorks is currently involved with many other types of aquatic related design and construction projects. Some of these projects include natural swimming pools, traditional pools, custom spas, wetland mitigation, rainwater collection, reflecting pools, and fountains.
As time progresses, PondWorks will continue to evolve with the ever-changing construction and design industries while maintaining its ideals of Quality Design, Installation, and Service. We'll strive to continue improving ourselves and to provide the methods, materials, equipment, and services that our customers and clients expect at an affordable price.

“Our pond plans presented Brian with quite a challenge. We had chosen a spot nestled in an existing grove of Rhodendrons and a precious old Red Maple. The Pondworks team came in and dug the pond, laid the pipes for the bottom drains and skimmers, and laid positioned the liner without so much as a broken branch... The real craftsmanship came with the rock work. Large and indigenous rocks were artfully placed around the pond to complete the natural setting. Thank you Brian, for building this beautiful pond...” - Wendy & Jim O.
