of Water Home in the West Chester, PA Area
Cocoon Yourself in a Natural Backyard Environment
If you love the water, you may have dreamed of living on the beach or beside a lake, river, or bubbling stream. Fortunately, you don't have to leave West Chester, Pennsylvania, to bring the joyful sight and sound of water home to you. Instead, simply add a pond to your backyard.
Gather your family on the patio for a game night, illuminated by the glow of the light bouncing off the water's surface. Spend your weekends with your feet in the water, chatting with your friends over an outdoor meal. Toss treats to your fish as you relax at the end of the day. These magical moments are within reach, no matter the size or shape of your property. Turn to the pond builders at Turpin Landscape Design Build to create an oasis in your backyard, complete with a pond, waterfall, aquatic plants, stone pathways, and any other outdoor feature you can imagine.
Ponds are as diverse as the homeowners who love them. From recreational and swim ponds to ecosystem ponds that support an abundance of plant and animal life, we can design, install, and maintain a pond that suits your lifestyle and outdoor interests. We'll use our 20 years of experience in West Chester to help you choose the plants and materials to create a vibrant outdoor space that surrounds you with the tranquility of nature.
After a collaborative design and installation process, you'll enjoy a pond that looks like a natural part of your landscape. You'll feel like it's always been there, and your daily life will naturally shape itself around the appeal of your pond and the way you feel as you sit beside it.
At Turpin Landscape Design Build, we specialize in ecosystem ponds, pondless waterfalls, swim ponds, and other water features, along with complete landscape design build services. We also offer pond maintenance, so you can add the pond you've been dreaming of without any concern about how you'll keep it clean and healthy.

See How a Pond Can Enhance Your Landscape
As you browse our portfolio, you'll notice how each pool and landscape is designed with that home and its family in mind. Even though each project is different, they have a few things in common: a natural, comforting experience, high-quality craftsmanship, and attention to the details that truly set a landscape apart.
Our Process for Ensuring High-Quality Craftsmanship and Client Satisfaction
Creating a great customer experience is as important to us as building beautiful landscapes. Over the years, we've streamlined our process to ensure a simple, hassle-free experience for you. View each step in our process below to learn more.
1. Get In Touch
This is where it all begins! Fill out the contact form on our website and give us some information about your project. You'll hear from us within one business day requesting any additional information that may be needed or to move forward with the next step in our process.
2. Initial Consultation
This is an opportunity for both of us to get to know each other better either on the phone or virtually. You'll go into detail about your needs and wants, to ensure we've got a good understanding of what you're looking for in your space so that we can present you with a ballpark price for your project.
3. Onsite Consultation
The Project Manager or Landscape Designer will be there, and we ask that all decision-makers be present. We’ll collect your consultation fee, which will be credited toward the design and/or construction. During this consultation we’ll take measurements, photos, and share material samples with you to help you get a better sense of what's possible. Throughout it all, we're here to guide you with expert advice and recommendations.
From there, we'll draw up your agreement and collect your deposit or design fee to secure your place on our schedule. For some projects, we'll start our design process right there on the spot!
4. Design & Materials
For larger projects and pools there is a more extensive design phase. There's a $1,500-5,000 design charge, depending upon the scope of the project and whether you'd like a 2D or 3D design. We'll have a virtual meeting to present your design plan which includes material samples. Design and material adjustments are made according to your feedback. We offer revisions, because we want to make sure the design is exactly what you're envisioning for your space. We’ll finalize your plans and draft your construction agreement. When you sign off on it and pay your construction deposit, we’ll secure your place on our calendar.
5. Project Kick-Off Meeting
You'll meet in person with the Project Manager and your crew leader, where we'll revisit the scope of your work and the fine details of your project. We'll mark everything out on the ground so you can get a sense of the layout in your space, and you'll have the opportunity to ask questions. This meeting usually occurs 2-4 weeks before construction.
Your Project Manager remains your point of contact throughout the construction phase. Our crew works hard to stick to the agreed upon schedule and budget, pending any change requests or weather conditions and other circumstances out of our control. We'll provide weekly updates on the status of the project and communicate proactively whenever something needs your attention.
7. Final Walkthrough
You'll take a final look at your new landscape with your Project Manager, and we'll show you how to properly care for and maintain your outdoor features. This is also when we'll collect your final payment.
