“Seeing a Kane Brothers pond is like looking at a painting and knowing it was a certain artist’s work. They are honest, reasonably priced, better than on time, and a real pleasure to work with. Having such great designs ideas, I let them go with what they thought would make me happy and couldn’t be more pleased with the results. They see their aquatic creations as works of art and labors of love and that’s just what I’m looking for in something that’s going to be a part of my life.”

“While undertaking to create a significant water feature consisting of a large waterfall and surrounding gardens I was introduced to the Kane Brothers. It was the best thing that could have happened to my project! Their input on design and construction was invaluable and produced a spectacular result. Frank and Chris are not only dedicated to, but passionate about their projects as are all those they bring to the jobsite. The entire team is knowledgeable, organized and well trained. As a result of my experience, we continue to have a relationship that I consider not only professional, but personal and permanent as well. I can, and have, recommended them without reservation many times.”

“If there’s such a thing as reincarnation, then Frank and Chris Kane must surely have lived previous lives as garden designers in ancient Japan. The genius of their ponds isn’t just restricted to their meticulous attention to detail, but to their obsession with “getting it right”. Speaking in terms of the mechanical aspects of the pond and its filtration system, their plumbing installations are precise, neat and top notch: no runs, no leaks, and no errors. I am ecstatic with the new home for our show quality koi collection.
