Having a water feature designed for you will enrich your day-to-day life. See what our customers say about working with us.


We were so impressed with Will’s skill and persistence in resolving our pond leak problem, as well as with his obvious enthusiasm for this work. He and Clay also did a great job cleaning the pond (and sparing me this annual onerous task!).

Just Add Water will be our first call for any future pond-related needs…and we’ll happily provide references.

Debra Salowitz


We had a little difficulty getting the job done due to the unusually wet weather. Will made sure that the job was done to our specifications.

Will made sure he understood exactly how we wanted the repairs to our pond to be completed. Very professional. We were very pleased with the end result.

Karla McDowell


All I can say is WOW! This company is comprised of a group of professional gentlemen who care about what they do. From the first call to the final walkthrough, we couldn’t have been more pleased.

The end result is far better than what we could have imagined. If you’re looking for a quality company to design and care for your water feature in Iowa, call Just Add Water.
