Dennis Kading has been designing and installing ponds for the past ten
years. He originally began as a finish carpenter. However, he had a
fascination for the outdoors and was intrigued with design concepts. His
interest in collecting specimen trees and his eye for design was a natural
transition into landscaping.
In 1993, Dennis and a partner started Taskforce Landscape, where they
serviced restaurants in maintenance and landscape. A few years later, they
reduce their services to provide only landscape maintenance and
In 1998, Dennis picked up a flyer for the Aquascape Designs Natural Water
Feature system in a landscape parts store. He was curious about the validity
of this non-chemical solution and tested it in his own backyard. It worked.
Since then, ponds have been his passion.
Dennis became a C-27 licensed Landscape Contractor and opened a business
with his partner in Upland called Waterscapes Plus. Waterscapes Plus was
very successful, installing over 400 ponds in the first 5 years of business.
In January 2005, the partners went their separate ways, and Dennis opened a
retail store in Glendora. It was then that The Pond Pros was established.
While The Pond Pros is not a franchise for Aquascape Designs, they strongly
believe in and promote the system’s capabilities. They have over 800
customers to demonstrate their belief in the system.
Dennis Kading lives in Claremont. He has three children – two
sons, Cameron and Cade, and a daughter, McKenna. Dennis grew up
in the area, attending Glendora High.
Dennis is “pond crazy”. If you want to see a pond designed with
enthusiasm and passion, ask to see the “Kading Lagoon”, a 15x55 foot pond with 3 waterfalls, over 100 koi, 3 turtles and 4 bull frogs. He recently added a 28 foot stream into a small shallow pond in the front yard with a bridge to the front door.
