I was looking for a service to fix my pond pump and clean up the pond.
I did an internet search and found On Golden Pond in my area. I was able to get an appointment with Samuel who came within a few days.
He sent me a reasonable quote and were able to do the work the following week. His workmen did a fantastic job cleaning the pond and were able to fix the pump instead of replacing it. I will not hesitate to use them in the future.

Years ago, we hired a landscaping crew that created a little backyard water feature with a small pond to attract native birds.  That worked brilliantly, but trying to keep the pond clean and free of mosquito larvae was a chore.  I was incredibly fortunate to connect with Samuel and his team at On Golden Pond.  They are able to manage the algae without harming the birds, and the proof of that is the very happy school of mosquito fish which they recommended and told me how to obtain free of charge.  Plumbing issues have been resolved over the years, and the pond just takes care of itself -- with regular visits from On Golden Pond.  Now I only have to look out the window and enjoy the birds.

For far too long we struggled with maintaining a clean pond and, frankly, did not enjoy the beauty of our fish and turtle.  Samuel quoted me a fair price for professional service and brought over a capable, friendly crew to work on putting in better piping and filtration.  They installed a seahorse fountain perched on a flagstone slab that not only looks natural and classy, but provides a basking area for our beloved turtle, Laguna.  From start to end they were reliable, professional and hardworking.  If you need pond design, repair or maintenance...Samuel's your man!

Samuel and his crew were very reliable, efficient, and pleasant to work with.
We inherited a 900 gallon Koi pond with various water features and it had not been maintained very well over the years. Samuel's crew had it looking pristine by the end of the day.
They drained the pond, removed the fish, and extensively cleaned out all the overgrown root systems and debris. They also updated part of the filtering system and installed some lights. We now have a beautiful pond and happy Koi.
I would definitely recommend Samuel and crew.

I've read the reviews for On Golden Pond and quite frankly I was surprised to read what one person wrote. I had a great experience. It started when I tried to build my own pond and it was disaster. This is why people should call professionals, so that's what did. I found OGP through google and gave them a call. I told him I didn't want to hear what I did wrong and to just fix it. He did and the results were everything I expected and more...for a while. At the time I decided not to go all the way with the recommended repairs, convincing myself they weren't necessary...oops.

Three years later and I called them back. We just finished the project today and it looks great. Samuel, the owner, walked me through everything and never came back asking for more money to fix something else. He identified everything I should have done three years ago and fixed it as well as a few bonuses. He was professional and his people cared about what they were doing. It was a great experience I would definitely recommend On Golden Pond. Get a pro!

I bought a house with a Koi pond and about 30 fish.  I was a complete novice...and after a series of unfortunate mishaps I found Samuel and hired him for a thorough cleaning and monthly maintenance.  After a couple of years I had to lay him off, strictly for financial reasons.  But since then I've called him anytime something beyond my numerous limitations has come up and he's always been out lickety split to help.  He's never given me any kind guilt trip or grief for letting him go.  He's always done a fantastic job and he's never left me hanging.  I would recommend his services to anybody in need.

Samuel is the best. I love his suggestions and completely trust what he says. If you're looking for pond maintenance &/or rebuilding/repair of an existing pond, call him immediately. I am sorry I waited so long to get him. (And like other reviewers say: professional, reliable, efficient & pleasant!) Whenever I have a question, he responds immediately. Adore On Golden Pond!

Samuel and his crew are professional and reliable.  Also very responsive to our needs and creative in solving our problems with raccoons feasting on our fish.  We highly recommend him (and we had three different service providers prior to his employ).

They offer an amazing service at a reasonable price.   Samuel is a professional and knows what he is doing.    In the past I worked with a company that charged me less, however, the service was not comparable.  Samuel rescued my three koi that were almost dying.   I highly recommend him.

I had a great experience with Samuel at OGP. He responded quickly, scheduled an appointment, was clear and was very up front about pricing and the required deposit. When the original estimate came in high, he patiently reworked it so that we could do half the work now and the rest later when I could afford it. And my little pond looks beautiful!

I had seen On Golden Pond's work at a variety of locations in Santa Monica and Malibu and their attention to detail when building and. Maintaining Koi Ponds is amazing. I met one of their workers and he knew a lot about Koi fish. He serviced a pond on one of our properties and he did great.

They have done wonders for my pond and fish. Price is reasonable and staff is great. I highly recommend them.

On Golden Pond has been maintaining our water feature for many years. Their service, quality of work, and responsiveness have been nothing short of outstanding. They always show for scheduled visits and always go the extra mile to ensure that the water is crystal clear, the pool is well maintained and that the tile around the pool always looks like new. Great company!!!

We have been using On Golden Pond, Inc. for over 10 years. They are amazing! Because of them, our water feature still looks brand new after all of these years.
