Owner Brian Fitzsimmons built his first pond at age 13 in his parents backyard while they were away on vacation. In 2008 he started Fitz's Fish Ponds and has been growing the company ever since. Today we have a retail store and multiple crews building and servicing water features daily. We design, build, and service ponds, waterfalls and all other water features. Our crew is experienced, educated and most importantly creative. We believe no two ponds or water features should be the same, and no idea is too farfetched. By working closely with our clients and listening to their needs we aim to leave them with a finished product beyond their expectations. Whether it's cleaning a pond or building a massive waterfall you can be sure the Fitz's Fish Ponds crew will fully dedicate their love, passion, and knowledge to your water feature.
