“Barry and I agreed on a very fair price and the work was started the very next weekend! Process was amazing to watch as our pond and waterfall started to take shape. Project was finished on time and was amazing. We have had no issues at all with the installed equipment. All in all, a great investment for our property and very relaxing to watch and listen to.”

"Barry Vance and AQUA GARDENS continues to do an outstanding job servicing our Koi pond since 2014. His knowledge and guidance on continuing care are invaluable and we would highly recommend him to anyone needing a new pond installed or an existing one rebuilt, cleaned and/or maintained."
“My husband and I had Barry Vance design and install a waterfall by our lake. We have had so many compliments from friends and guests thru the years. Photographers, family photos, and prom goers all utilize this little piece of paradise for many photo opportunities. At night, we love looking at the soft lighting among the rocks and listening to the water; it is a little piece of heaven for us. Such a peaceful and relaxing place for all of our family to enjoy. We highly recommend for anyone to utilize Barry’s talents.”
"We had a pond installed at our home in May of 2010 by Barry Vance owner and operator of Aqua Gardens. It is beautiful beyond our expectations and complements our landscape. The level of professionalism and knowledge provided to us about the filtration system, maintenance of the pond, and care of the Koi was greatly appreciated. If you want a beautiful pond done professionally I would recommend Barry Vance Aqua Gardens."
"I was so excited when we decided to add a pond to our country get away. A pond would just make our retreat ideal. When Barry Vance explained his plan, it fit our desires and the lay of the property. Barry is a great communicator as well as a talented creator of space. He kept us informed of progress on our project. And the best part…..He sent pictures so that we could almost be there! If you love the sound of water running over rocks soothes you….and you don’t have access to that sound in Nature….You must speak with Barry about building your dream."
“The thing that impresses me most about Barry is that he truly wants your pond to be everything you want it to be. Most pond builders, in my opinion, build them and just leave...not Barry! He wants you to be happy!!! No one can go wrong if they choose Barry to build or take care of their pond. When it comes to ponds, Barry will always be our man!!!”
“I really enjoyed working with Barry on both a new pool waterfall and Koi Pond combination, as well as a renovation of an abandoned Koi Pond. He brings extensive experience and knowledge in all areas involved with creating a beautiful and long lasting water feature. I look forward to working with him on more projects in the future.”
"In 2004, I began looking for a person to help me build a pond and waterfall for my lake home on Barren River Lake. I found Barry Vance and he helped me to visualize and transform the area below our deck into a gorgeous fish pond area that was extremely relaxing for me and my family. The bubbling water and watching the fish swim in and out of the layout Barry designed was very entertaining. I would highly recommend Barry to not only construct but, design an area to suit your individual needs and deliver the results in a professional and timely manner."
"Being in a pond club for several years in Clarksville Tennessee, occasionally issues come up, pumps go out , cleaning , leaks, etc. ... you need someone that is knowledgeable of these issues. I have found that Mr. Barry Vance ( Aqua Gardens ) to be that someone ‼ He has replaced pumps for me in a very efficient manner. Not only does he do repairs, he also builds water gardens, water falls, swimming ponds etc. I have seen his work and I highly recommend him for all of your ponding needs! Thank you Mr. Barry Vance for your service to the water garden/ pond community!"

"We could not be happier with our backyard waterfall! Barry and his team did a fantastic job. He is a true artist. We trusted him on the design and he created a spectacular product. Barry was meticulous, seemingly thinking about the placement of each individual rock during the installation."
