Building your pond or lake is the first step to sustain a productive fishery. Poorly constructed ponds are hard to manage. Water levels may fluctuate drastically if there is a leak or if the watershed area is not large enough. Having too many flats or shallow areas may cause undesirable vegetative growth and it will multiply exponentially.  In addition, erosion and contamination from the watershed may make pond management difficult or impossible.  Lochow Ranch Lake Management specializes in professional pond and lake building and has proven that, with the right environment, any size water body can and will produce a fishery one can only dream of.

Proper design is the smart first step toward building a pond that will serve your needs for generations. Our lake design team starts by determining your needs. Once we know the type of lake or pond that you prefer and what sort of property is available to work with, we assess the rainfall and watershed of the area to determine the size and shape of your project. Depth and proper slope are always taken into consideration to help reduce long-term vegetation control costs. We offer built-in drains to rid your lake of dead, unproductive water at the bottom and also address any supplemental aeration and structure needs. If something is important to building a pond or lake of the highest quality, we handle it for you.

Our Lochow Ranch team of professionals begins by building a clay trench below the dam to ensure that it provides enough support during heavy rains. We have every kind of heavy earth-moving equipment imaginable at our disposal so we can construct your lake or pond — or we can supervise the work of an earthmoving company in your area. We also take the time to add structures that will provide fishing hotspots once the lake is full. In addition to building your lake, we can provide piers, docks, floating docks, boat ramps and even a sand beach if you desire.

There are many ways to renovate an existing lake or pond. Sometimes an existing fishery’s population has deteriorated to the point that it makes sense to perform total fish eradication and restart the ecosystem with a balanced stocking of quality fish. We also can repair drainage systems, leaking or damaged dams and remove sediment from existing ponds. In addition, we offer a deluxe limestone buffer system to enhance existing ponds. Good for the life of your lake, limestone buffering helps keep excess dirt from entering your pond, stops erosion from destroying your shoreline, and provides you with a clean edge to your lake.
