Professional Farm Pond Construction Services in Texas

Build a farm pond in Texas require expertise working with different soils,
deep knowledge about choosing the best placement for the pond, and a skilled team to build a farm pond that holds water.

The lack of experience building ponds can result in some expensive headaches like:


  • A pond that doesn’t hold water.
  • The water flows not crossing the pond.
  • Flooded areas on the property.
  • Water too far from where it will be used.


This is why you need the advice of an experienced Farm pond contractor before you move a single shovel of dirt.
The benefits of hiring an expert on farm pond construction are many, but the main one is that your farm pond will hold water the whole year.

Building a farm pond that holds water in Texas.

The difference between dry ponds and ponds that hold water is made by two key factors, the installation process, and the pond liner.


When, where, and how to build a pond.


The installation process requires experience to know when, where, and how to the things, and you can only get that knowledge by experience.

After 50 years of building ponds in Texas, we know…


  • “When” is the best time to build to avoid problems and delays due to the weather.
  • “Where” is the best location to build your farm pond to make it functional and cost-effective.
  • And “How” is the best way to build and line your pond.


The other key factor in farm pond contruction is the pond liner. We work with sodium bentonite pond liner to ensure the correct sealing of your farm pond.

Pond liner for farm ponds.


Farm ponds are used for more than holding water. They are used for irrigation, keeping the livestock hydrated, supporting wildlife, sometimes having fish and plants, swimming, etc.


These activities can stress the lining material and compromise the pond seal integrity.

For farm pond construction we use sodium bentonite to liner farm ponds, bentonite pond liner ensure the pond will hold water for many years.

Sodium Bentonite is an active pond liner that works on different pond conditions and soil types.

Its natural origin gives it many advantages over traditional rubber liners like:


  • It will not add chemicals or toxic materials to your land.
  • Bentonite can self-repair from small punctures.
  • Works on any pond condition
  • Bentonite can be applied to different soil types.
  • It can be used on ponds for livestock, wildlife, ponds for swimming, ponds with fish, etc.


All this makes Sodium Bentonite the ideal pond line for farm ponds construction.

They provided us with a great product in a very timely manner. I highly recommend working with lone star materials!Chad RuttenChad Rutten ★★★★★ Ricardo was great! From the time I started talking with him until the time that they were completed with the project was around a few weeks. Our pond was only about a quarter acre, but meeting timeliness and responsiveness in this day and age is hard to find and brings a lot of value to the customer. They did a great job getting everything cleaned up after they were completed with the project. Now we are just waiting for some rain so we can get our pond filled. If I ever need another pond to be sealed, or if I decide to increase the size of this pond, I will be calling these guys again. I would recommend them to anyone who need a pond sealed. Thanks, Ricardo, and thanks to your team!Hat CreekHat Creek ★★★★★ Lonestar did a FANTASTIC job on my pond sealing. The application of material was very deliberate and reshaping of the pond will add a lot of surface area.
