CUSTOM in or off ground PONDS

Building a Koi pond takes great engineering and an artistic eye to create a work of art. The final result has to be incredible to look at and serve its main purpose to provide a great environment for your Koi to live in. You’ll be amazed at the way your renu@hand Koi pond in Miami and Hialeah blend seamlessly with your home yet still manages to stand out as the masterpiece of your patio. You could place an ordinary pond behind your house or for close to the same price you could have renu@hand Deck & Pond Builders build a stylish custom pond in the Miami, Hialeah, and Fort Lauderdale areas that will be beautiful, soothing, romantic and the envy of the neighborhood.

On-Site Water Feature Design Consultation

There’s more to a pond than just water. The cost of any water feature can vary depending on the location, the type of water feature that best suits your needs and of course what equipment you are using during pond construction. This is the reason renu@hand offers on-site design consultations at your home or business, whether you have sketched out an idea on a napkin or have had a landscape designer provide you with 3-D imaging and CAD drawings or perhaps you just know you want “something”…but can’t quite put it into words or on paper, renu@hand will help you find your voice and vision with our creative experience. We can help you navigate the road of making that napkin sketch or architectural rendering or that elusive vision into a practical reality. Our job is to build your fountain or water feature in Miami and Hialeah…our passion is the creation.



Back PATIO Ponds

Entails a rubber liner, skimmer, biological filter, lined with rocks and gravel, about 2 feet deep and generally about 10 X 14 feet wide. Accommodates a few Koi, smaller fish, turtles, frogs, water-lilies and marginal plants. Requires regular “skimmer” maintenance, annual biological filter maintenance and “spring pond cleaning”.

Koi Ponds

Entails a rubber liner, multiple skimmers, bottom drain, multiple biological filters, settlement chamber, ultra-violet clarifiers, improved aeration and deeper. Accommodates more and larger Koi, few plants (as Koi eat them). Since Koi are admired and fed regularly they generate a lot of waste that needs weekly maintenance of the skimmers, sediment settlement chambers, filters and UV clarifiers.

Hybrid Ponds (crossover ponds)

This Fort Lauderdale, Hialeah, and Miami area pond option selectively uses the concepts and components from “back patio ponds” and “Koi ponds” to meet the different requirements of a client. It is less deep than Koi ponds, fewer Koi, fewer filters, more rocks in pond, added shelved areas for plants. The expected maintenance is less than Koi ponds but more than “back patio” ponds.

Pondless WaterfallS (cascading pondless)

The pond is replaced by a hidden reservoir of water that provides water for the waterfall. This usually consists of a basin, or lined hole in the ground, filled with rocks made into a waterfall and a pondless waterfalls pump circulating the water. This method literally requires almost NO maintenance, NO standing water, NO Algae, NO mosquitoes, NO pond additives, and NO critter vandalism. You determine when you want the waterfall to run, turn it on when you are home, turn it off when you leave. No standing water means that it is safe for your front patio installations.


Set a timer to turn it on when your home. Turn it off when you are gone, or on vacation.


Raccoons will not mess up your pond plants in their destructive search for your prize Koi.


No algae — no additives. Using a leaf blower occasionally will remove most fallen leaves and debris.

NO MOSQUITOS (No standing water)

CUSTOM ABOVE ground ponds

Ponds can be created slightly above ground and blended nicely towards ground level with stones and rocks. When doing a raised pond you need to take the cost of materials into account. Where you would normally dig a hole and the earth would support it you now would need to use bricks, blocks or stone with concrete and sometimes even decking.



The pond is safer for children as it is raised off the ground – it will also keep out dogs or other pets.

There is no need to dig a huge hole in the ground, you can just build around it.

With the pond being higher this helps maintenance, fish viewing, prevents rubbish, mud and other unwanted things falling into your pond. If you are considering a Koi pond then this will give you great pleasure for not only viewing the fish, but easily feeding them out of your hand.

This pond has been created slightly above ground but it has been blended in nicely with stones and rocks.

When doing a raised pond you need to take the cost of materials into account. Wherever you decide to build, keep in mind you will need bricks, blocks, stone and sometimes even decking.

These types of pond just go so well with patios

We will make sure that you create a wide rim all the way around the edge that can provide an extra seating area. It’s as close to the fish as you can get without going for a swim.
