Ron reimagined an old cement lined pond that was probably original to our 100+ year old house. We were tired of dealing with raccoons so he designed a lovely stream with a waterfall that flows into the existing pond basin with no fish. Ron is really easy to work with and we love that he has a fine art background. I would also describe him as a landscape artist.

I had a great experience designing and building a pond with Ron DeGeorge. I spent several years getting estimates (really costly ones) while looking for someone who could create an affordable biological filtration system rather than one with powerful pumps and filters. The pond has evolved into a totally natural looking upper/lower pond with waterfall. I had a lot of ideas about what I wanted, having read a lot about pond building, and remember the advice Ron offered in our first meeting....along the lines of ‘I won’t tell you what you want, if you don’t tell me how to build it’. It got us off on the right foot for a great outcome, that is just what I wanted! Ron is really a landscape artist, with in-depth knowledge about ponds. I especially wanted to grow water plants in the upper pond, and to create bathing areas for birds. Two of my neighbors subsequently put in pond/water features after seeing Ron’s work.

Ron enlarged and improved the existing Pond and added a bio-bog. The operation has been problem free for 4 years and attracts birds and dragonflies. Ron is honest, fair and reliable. A very nice person to work with. He also has a terrific design eye - he reworked paths that I was not happy with and added boulders throughout the garden to give it a naturalistic look. I was very pleased with the end result and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Ron and his work

Vortex Water Features / Ron DeGeorge installed my front yard drought tolerant and mostly native landscaping 5 years ago. Central to the landscaping is a beautiful rock lined waterfall and pond/bog. The water feature exceeded our expectations, and attracts birds, dragon flies and frogs. The landscaping included grading/contouring, large boulders, flagstone patio and path, and numerous plantings. I would highly recommend Ron, and will be starting a new project in my backyard this spring that will also include a water feature.

Ron deGeorge is a professional pond builder. He has a very artistic eye for his projects, and dedicates much effort to get his product to his client's liking. Ron and his assistant built a stunning two level pond for my husband and myself two years ago. It is a beautiful addition to our landscape, and we love the wildlife it attracts, the sounds of the waterfall, and our family of goldfish who call it home. Ron did follow up visits to ensure that the pond was functioning well. He has given us good advice to help us along learning about our pond. Ron is personable and easy to work with. I highly recommend his work.
