Contractor’s Corner | Award Goes to Unique Patio Project

Published on January 7, 2016

Design and execution definitely helped this pond/patio project win the last Contractor’s Corner award for 2015. Installed by Brian Fitzsimmons of Fitz’s Fish Ponds, this backyard gem is a beautiful addition to this New Jersey house.

Below are some of the highlights:

The feature would begin with a natural-looking waterfall built with large, red Pennsylvania fieldstones to match the reddish tint of the patio pavers. The back of the waterfall would be built up into the kitchen island to really connect the two together. The falls would then cascade down into a formal rectangular-shaped pond, which would border the entire edge of the patio. The pond portion would be capped with the same stone as the patio to bring the two together.

Each month, Contractor’s Corner features a case study and provides insights to the challenges of implementing many types of ponds and water features.
