Great Work (but a bit expensive)
IrisBlade replaced an old, leaking pond in my backyard. I tried to get several quotes, but most pond installers wanted $125.00-175.00 just to come out and write up an estimate. (I think they hope to "lock you in" with that; but I will never pay for someone to tell me how much their work will cost! The arrogance!) Fortunately, Andre with Irisblade was not one of those. Andre listened to what I wanted and he came out a couple of times to discuss the plans with me (no drawings, so I had to use my imagination). His quote was not the best price, but I felt that the company would do a good job. The pond and waterfall they installed are very attractive and quite natural looking, so I cannot complain about the quality or service. There were some issues with the lights, but Andre replaced the transformer twice. Now everything seems to be working as it should. I do feel that I somewhat overpaid. I had requested that they not haul off the stone from the old pond so that I could use it for paths in my garden. I had not expected them to leave everything--liner, concrete, and various debris. I now have the added expense of hiring a junk removal company. The other estimates I got included the haul off. Live and learn. But the pond certainly is nice!
