Pond Cost

Price estimates for installing a pond

The cost to build a backyard pond can vary greatly. The size, style, materials and equipment you select will all impact the final price of your pond. You can expect to pay between $5,000 and $20,000 for a custom pond.

If you want extra features such as a waterfall or stream, expect to pay an additional amount relevant to the size of the feature. Additionally a bridge or stepping stone pathway that crosses the pond will add to the total cost.
