Total Habitat Customer Testimonials
At Total Habitat, we are so fortunate to have such wonderful clients, both for our Natural Swimming Pool/Pond projects and our commercial/exhibit endeavors! See some of our customer testimonials below:
Total Habitat built our natural swimming pool three years ago (2014). It is the best addition to our home we've ever done. The design team created an amazing pool for our setting including waterfalls, ladders, a beach, steps for water lilies and an infinity edge on our hillside. I like to think of the TH team as mad scientists, creative artists and talented engineers all rolled into one. Because every location is different, they draw upon their vast experience to create the perfect pool for each location. And, they make the process fun. The waterfall, plant life, fish and pool add life, beauty and calm to our surroundings. We enjoy the pool during all four seasons. We never have to close it up like a conventional pool. It is truly breathtaking when its surrounded by snow in the winter. The TH crew comes out in the spring and cleans out the winter debris with their handy dandy vacuum system. Other than that, we have done zero maintenance to it and the water remains crystal clear.
Five stars and a whole lot of gratitude to the Total Habitat team for enhancing our lives!

Natural Swimming Pool/Pond Design & Build Client
The idea of a natural swimming pool ("swimming pond") held great appeal, but my tropical location presented considerable challenges. Consulting with Sophia at Total Habitat proved invaluable for this project, and gave the local installers much more confidence going forward....I would not hesitate to hire Total Habitat for a consultation or a full on-site installation. The staff clearly know their product, and they are approachable, knowledgeable and responsive. If only all contractors had this level of service!

Natural Swimming Pool/Pond Design Consultation Client
There's so much nature here now, I just love it! (Our son) spends more time outside and now all his friends want to come here to hang out, which is just great... I find myself humming Fred Astaire's lyrics: 'Heaven, I'm in heaven!'
Thank you for the time you’ve devoted to your ebook and sharing of all the lessons learned. I wouldn’t have been able to complete this project without it. Spring can’t get here fast enough.
We got back from our trip this afternoon to find the most amazing finished pond! It’s like our own beautiful little paradise here. Also, Matt and Jo were really amazing to work with and a pleasure to have around. They worked incredibly hard and fast and skillfully and are such good natured, nice people.
We are very thankful to all of you!
