About Oklahoma Ponds

Jay Villemarette & Family - Owner Of Oklahoma PondsOur story starts back in 1989 when our late grandfather, Joe Villemarette, aka Patio Joe, opened Patio Garden Ponds, the state’s first pond retail store. In 2003, the family retired from the brick and mortar retail store. Now, we serve the OKC metro area as the city’s premier pond contractor, Oklahoma Ponds.

Today, Jay Villemarette Jr. leads Oklahoma Ponds. He began his water gardening and koi career at just 15 years old when Patio Joe gave him his first job working in the nursery and helping customers with their pond questions. The knowledge and experience Jay received as a teenager working with his grandfather was the beginning of a lifelong obsession with garden ponds and koi care. Jay is now a Master Certified Aquascape Contractor and his team is ready to build you your perfect pond!

What We Do

Pond construction is more than just rocks, waterfalls, and filters.

We build entire self-contained ecosystems.

  • We care for your koi or goldfish.
  • We’ll install plants that not only look great but keep your pond healthy, too.
  • And we provide regular services to keep your pond crystal clear all year long.

We take pride in our workmanship and our customer service, and we want you to take pride in your pond. That’s why we invest so much time and money honing our team’s skills. We want to earn your trust and provide you the best possible experience!

We thoroughly enjoyed working with Oklahoma Ponds. Colby was excellent. He was clearly knowledgeable and went beyond doing a pond cleaning. He made suggestions to enhance the pond's operation and to enhance the visual appeal. The service was great, friendly, and trustworthy.

Oklahoma Ponds people are very capable, knowledgable and dedicated. It is a pleasure to have them servicing my pond which is very healthy and beautiful. My goldfish are also very healthy and happy. Thanks!

We could not be more pleased with this company! The professionalism, responsiveness, and friendliness of the owner, Jay, and his crew were amazing. They were creative. The job was done even better than we had envisioned, and very reasonably priced. I cannot recommend them enough!

If you want a koi pond, these are the guys to use. They did a great job and we love our new pond. The fish seem to love it too.

We love working with Oklahoma Ponds. They are professional and reasonable. We had them put fountains in our backyard. They are available for any questions and are always there if we need them. Recently our fountains stopped working and they came out immediately and fixed the problem. They are easy to work with and great guys you can trust! My husband and I highly recommend them.

To only be able to give 5 stars is a disservice to Jay and his exemplary team. Jay blew us away with his vision for our new-build project and his team executed on that vision with precision. Our oasis looks like it should be in a magazine. The fish are happy, and healthy from the relocation, and the setting at night is magical. #AlreadyDreamingOfTheNextPhase
