Meet the Owner: Jeff Michaels

Jeff Michaels, the founder and visionary behind Pondering Waters, brings a wealth of experience and passion to the world of aquatic landscaping. With a background in landscape architecture and a lifelong love for nature, Jeff’s journey into pond construction and water feature design began as a personal pursuit of tranquility and beauty in his own backyard.

His hands-on approach, attention to detail, and commitment to customer satisfaction have earned Pondering Waters a reputation for excellence in the industry.
