Amy shrugs. “I honestly can’t say. It looks really nice so, maybe, a few thousand dollars?” Brian frowns in thought. “No way, it has to cost more than that! Their pond has to be in the tens of thousands.”
Amy pulls out her phone. “Well, why don’t we find out? I’ll text them to ask and look up the cost of a koi pond for Bristol County. Maybe they can recommend some local koi pond builders.”
After searching, here is what Amy finds.
Koi Pond Costs
Koi ponds can cost anywhere from $8,000 to $50,000 and higher. Low-end ponds are usually $8,000 to $10,000. The average cost of a koi pond is about $15,000. Higher-end ponds range from $25,000 to $50,000 and higher.
But the costs don’t stop there.
An ecosystem koi pond is the best because it recreates a pond ecosystem that, for the most part, takes care of itself. You’ll want to hire someone to clean it out 2-3 times a year.
Your water bill will go up a bit, but not by much. Koi ponds circulate water through a filter so it rarely needs to draw in more. If your water bill does jump up you may want to check for pond leaks.
The cost to install a koi pond can change for many reasons.
Cost Factors For Koi Ponds
Size and shape are some of the biggest cost factors for installing koi ponds. Larger ones need more time, materials, and labor to build. The contractor may need to bring in some digging equipment. Unique shapes look amazing but can drive up costs as well.
Koi pond costs can also increase if you install add-ons. Streams, underwater lighting, plants, fish, and other add-ons increase your enjoyment and the cost.
If the digging site has issues the cost can go up. Roots, underground electrical lines, and other obstacles make the job more complex. The contractor may need special equipment to handle it properly.
