    Pond construction season is whenever the ground isn't frozen. If you can dig-it's perfect time.
    Price for construction will depend on what company you use, size etc.
    Ballpark, figure on in the neighborhood of $2000 for pond supplies (not rock material).

    That is why in retail terms these things sell for so much. A typical backyard water garden will have $2000 in materials, $2000 in stone, & $2500 in labor.

    If you want to build a pond or better yet, a pondless waterfall since it is in your front yard (liability issues), go to www.aquascapes.com this is the premier company in the business and everything you need to know can be had from them.
