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!

James and Darian did an awesome job expanding the borders of our boulders for proper water retention. They paid attention to detail making the feature look natural and pleasing to the eye. James made a great suggestion to tie in more lighting around the periphery of rocks. Jay, the owner is a professional in the water feature business. As of last summer we now have water features in the front and back of our house. He has hired and trained the right guys for these jobs. Two thumbs up!!

Oklahoma Ponds was great! They came out quickly to inspect the issue and fixed it the same day. Since we weren't home at the time, they sent us an instructional video which was very helpful. m

Jake and his crew did a great job on the pondless waterfall in our backyard. Jake is very responsive and easy to work with. Our 2 year-old bichon loved playing in the waterfall! Would definitely recommend to anyone interested in adding water features to their yard.

Can’t say enough good things about these guys. I highly recommend them.

These guys they went above and beyond the call of duty and delivered more than we could ever dream. He really paid attention to all the little details. And they even came back and serviced it. I want something extra for the backyard. And my pond has become the focal point. My grandkids love to come over and feed her fish. We’ve already got them to eat out of our hands 🙂 God bless y’all
