Outdoor Living & Water Feature (Pond) Design, Installation & Maintenance Services
Serving Lexington & Central Kentucky

Hello, my name is Jeff Duggins, President of H2O Designs & Outdoor Living “By Design”. Thank you for taking the time to learn more about our family and our company. For your convenience we have created a short video that explains our company history and services. Below is a brief summary of our company history.



We started H2O designs in 2005 providing pond maintenance services to central Kentucky pond owners.



In just 2 short years we had grown into one of Central Kentucky's premier pond & water feature installation & maintenance companies. We opened our first Pond Retail store in 2007 to support a growing demand from our customers.



We expanded our services to include Outdoor living designs & installation. This marked the birth of the Outdoor Living "By Design" division of our company.



Today we provide Outdoor Living design & installation services that include ponds & water gardens, patio area design & installation, wood & composite deck solutions, outdoor fireplace & fire pit entertainment areas, pergola & covered entertainment areas, swimming pool area designs & installation, outdoor kitchens & basically anything you & your family need to move your entertainment and relaxation outdoors.

As with any great company we feel that our greatest asset are our employees. Our H2O family does not stop with our immediate family, we pride ourselves on hiring and retaining dedicated and knowledgeable employees that share our passion for customer service and “The Outdoor Living Lifestyle”. We consider each customer interaction and project a reflection of our family’s reputation. Our goal is to provide you and your family with a means to enjoy the outdoor living lifestyle while providing an awesome customer experience before during and after your project completion.

Are we the right fit for your Outdoor Living Project?

This may seem like a straight forward question. However, that is exactly the way we like to do business and honestly our design & installation process may not be a good fit for you and your family. You see working for you is a personal experience for us and we believe that every one of our customer deserves an honest and upfront approach to their project with no surprises or hidden fees. In order to achieve this our approach is simple. If I shake your hand and look you in the eye I am telling you the truth. I expect the same from you as a customer.

Once you contact us you will quickly understand this philosophy. Don’t be surprised if we ask you tough questions (what is your budget?, why do you want this?, etc) during our initial conversation, conversely don’t hesitate to ask us any questions you may have. Again, honesty is the ONLY WAY to ensure we are the right company to create your Outdoor Living Paradise.

Our years of hands-on experience means you get more than just an average Pond or Outdoor Living Project. Our designs are unique to you. Our in depth design consultations allow us to listen to your desires and design your project to suit your lifestyle, preferences, and personality; you will never see your exact pond, waterfall or outdoor living design at someone else’s home. We work hard to bring nature and art together so that you can experience the relaxing and amazing results of working with Mother Nature and inviting you into her world to entertain and sooth your soul. Our goal is to provide you with the finest custom-crafted pondswater featurespatiosdecksoutdoor kitchens & other outdoor living products available in central Kentucky. We pride ourselves on delivering our work on time and on budget ever time. See what our customers Have to say
