Who We Gonna Call?

“Ted, I swear if you make a Ghostbusters joke right now…”

Ted stops and closes his mouth into a slight smile. Robin knew what was about to come out of his mouth and she’s trying to be serious right now.

She’s been waiting to install a pond in their yard for over a year now. Since it’s finally able to happen she’s all business about it. The only part left to take care of is to look for koi pond installers near them.

Robin wriggles her phone out of her pocket and opens up the Internet. She pulls up Google and types in ‘koi pond installers near me’.

After an hour of research, it turns out there aren’t many koi pond specialists around Des Moines. There is one but the rest are landscapers who also do water features. She hands her findings to Ted so he can see who she found.

Here are the 3 companies (in alphabetical order) she’s going to contact for a quote. She can always contact JAW, the pond contractor, if she wants a pond specialist.

Country Landscapes

An all-around landscaping company, Country Landscapes wants to provide you with unsurpassed quality in landscape design and construction services. While they are primarily a landscaping company they can and have been installing koi ponds in Des Moines and the surrounding area. They have several locations with their corporate office being in Ames. 

Ted nods his head and scrolls to the next contractor.

Perennial Gardens

Not just a koi pond installer near you but also a landscaping company, Perennial Gardens wants to give you exactly what you want. They started out simply designing, installing, and maintaining gardens. Now they’ve expanded to have full landscaping services. 

Ted likes that they’ll work so hard to meet his expectations. He scrolls on to the 3rd pond installer in Des Moines.

Ted Lare

Located in West Des Moines this company can build an amazing landscape with a water feature included. Their philosophy is to do it right the first time, and that’s the Ted Lare promise.

Wait, There’s A 4th One On Here!

“Wait, there’s one more right?” Ted asks.

There is indeed, and they’re dedicated koi pond installers near Des Moines and the area around it. Robin is definitely considering them, especially after seeing their portfolio page.

I’ve worked with Just Add Water for two water features. They have always been good listeners and eager to get the work up to my specs. The Just Add Water Team is very creative and loves what they do! They take on any challenge, find a solution and get it done!

If you are looking for a professional approach to beautify your yard, I highly recommend Chris, Will, and their team for the project!

The crew & office staff at Just Add Water make the perfect team to create a water feature that enhances your life. If you are just looking for advice, or if you need repairs to an existing water feature, or if you want something totally new for your landscape… Just Add Water is the place to go.

They removed our old pond and invented a beautiful fresh look with a pondless system of 3 waterfalls. We’re very pleased and truly impressed with their artistry and sincere demeanor. Give them a chance. You’ll be glad you did!

John Gray


We hired Just Add Water to create a waterfall feature in our backyard. What we didn’t expect was the overwhelming beauty that happened when they were finished! Chris came to our house on a Sunday, no less, to plan our design, and his crew worked on a Saturday after a long week to do our project.

Amazing, stunning, and much more than we ever dreamed! Professional, and over-the-top design, you won’t be disappointed!!
