  • I always wanted a river front property. Thanks to Marcel and his team I have my dream, but in an urban setting. They did a terrific job. I highly recommended.

    thumb Mark Levy
  • Was disappointed with the initial work done by Byron and crew but he quickly rectified the issues I needed done. I am happy to report they are an honest company that has pride in their work. I would recommend them to anyone needing a pond cleaned or complete new water feature 🙂

  • Starting with our initial meeting with Marcel and through the construction phase with the crew of Byron, Tom and Garrett, Streamworks was amazing to work with. The creative vision, execution of the plan and overall amazing quality of workmanship made our pond renovation the best project we have done on our house. The team is courteous, professional, reliable and very good at communicating. You can’t go wrong hiring Streamworks to build, renovate or maintain your pond.

  • If you want a water feature in your space, this is the company to do it. They are an exceptional team of professionals who have the creative vision and technical skills to create a beautiful landscape. Byron and his crew are organized, tactical, approachable, enthusiastic, and hard working. They transformed our back yard into a tranquil, inviting landscape.

  • We saw a pond designed and created by Byron in our neighbourhood. We returned to look at it several times and finally asked the owners for a contact. Although we have had a pond since 2004 we just wanted to have a very natural looking one with all the pumps, filters, lighting etc. completely hidden. The entire team Marcel, Byron, Noah and James are knowledgeable, professional and hard working. But James is also a talented artist with an eye for the exact placement of the 15 tons of rock. Not only did they create a natural looking waterfall and stream, that winds down to a multi level pond, complete with a tunnel and cave where our large koi could hide, but they did it with a smile rain or shine. Our blue stone patio is a well done puzzle. All the pieces are placed perfectly with thyme growing between them. Our garden is truly enchanting with the pond lights illuminating the water fall and fish at night. We are extremely happy with their work and highly recommend Streamworks to anyone wanting a pond or water feature. We look forward to their return in the spring when water plants will be available for them to install. They will also maintain the pond once a year with nothing for us to do but enjoy it.

  • Everything about the Streamworks business of installing and maintaining water features is really good. A few years ago we had Streamworks install a very large water feature (80k) that included a 100 foot natural stream, a wetland plant filter area and a waterfall into a large pool - all installed at our Sales Center for a future Masterplan City Development. The water feature was meant to mimic a major stream surrounded by lush landscaping designed into the future City park within the Masterplan. The Streamworks guys "hit it out of the park" (so to speak) and installed the water feature on time and on budget and it still looks great and works well! Streamworks does the regular maintenance and it looks like the day it was installed. It's spectacular when visitors walk up to the Sales Center door and experience the soothing, calming noise of water in the stream. It's been a great water feature addition for us, see attached photos.

  • Everything from start to finish was an easy process. Marcel promptly provided a quote (my experience is other contractors do not), he had excellent suggestions and put all of my concerns to rest. The team arrived on time as scheduled, they were very professional, welcomed my constant questions and inquiries (yes I tend to micro manage). Four days later (yes 4 days!) they had transferred my soupy green slim of a pond into a beautiful natural looking oasis. I am simply stunned and so are those that have seen it. I had high expectations but this has exceeded anything I could have imagined. If you are thinking of getting a pond then this is your team!

    thumb Eva Theiss
  • Excellent pond maintenance service provided by the Streamworks team. They were on time, polite, and patiently answered all my questions. I will recommend this company for your pond services.
