    I had my first business expo the other day and i had one person ask what the average pond with a small waterfall cost. I am not sure what average is but i would say 10' X 5' Kidney Shape?? I took her number and told her i would have to check my file at home. I need help i have installed ponds with my former employers but never knew how much they cost. Can you help me??

    JB hard to say exactly the $ would be based on how her stuation I know you said 10'x5' but I would not put a number on it until I checked her property out sometimes estimates like that might get you in trouble. or you can figure the materials and let say labor plus profit could be anywere from $2,000 to $3,000
    Goodluck JOE

    For the pond kit retail your looking around$1078.00 Then you can dig something that small with a shovel and pickaxe. So No rental fees for the bobcat, then labor I say with out looking at the site $2500 So your looking about $3578.00 and it should only take you a day to complete.
