The three key factors to succeed in building a pond in Texas are:
For the last 50 years, we have been working on ponds doing pond design, pond construction, pond reshaping, and pond repair.
Contact our experts to design and construct your pond.
When we talk about pond design, we are not only talking about how it looks like, if it will have trees around or a dock, etc. We talk about much more important things that will determine the path of the pond construction, like:
The Pond Design matters because it helps us detect possible problems before we have a dozer in an 18ft hole or something more complicated.
The problems originating from the lack of design are costly and involve more than just throwing some sealer on the pond.
Our pond construction service begins with the pond design to ensure that you will not need extra repairs or fixes in the long or short term.

Building ponds in Texas have some difficulties. One of the most important ones is the lack of clay in the soil composition, meaning that you can’t just compact the soil and hope it holds water. You have to install a pond liner.
When choosing a pond liner, you need to consider the purpose of the pond because the liner experiences different stress when farm animals walk through it than fish and plants can cause.
At Lonestar Minerals, we build and repair ponds using Sodium Bentonite because of its resistance, versatility, and natural origin. These characteristics allow us to construct all kinds of ponds with the confidence that we are giving you a long-lasting solution that will save you money, headaches, and water.

We hired Lone Star Bentonite to work on a stock pond We have at our property In Millet, Tx. The price was competitive, service was great, but most important, the pond holds water now. Art and Ricardo are profesional friendly folks. Highly recommended!
Great experience working with Arturo, Ricardo and the team at Lone Star GTC. After thoroughly researching various products and receiving bids from multiple contractors for the re-construction and improvement of two existing livestock ponds that did not hold water, we trusted Lone Star to handle the process from start to finish using their preferred team of sub-contractors. The bentonite product that Lone Star sells is very high quality. It has a fine, baby-powder like consistency. When mixed with the aggregate & clay that was already on site, the result was a water-proof barrier that will last for decades. Whether purchasing the bentonite product for a DIY project or contracting Lone Star for larger pond/lake projects, you can trust them to deliver excellent service and exceed expectations. 5 STARS for quality, service and value.
Lonestar Minerals provide excellent service and results for us. They sealed a leaking seasonal pond that now holds and is beautiful increasing the value of our property dramatically. Ric was great to work with, very responsive, and went out of his way to help us.
Used 2 lbs per sq/fr of Lone Star’s Premium sodium bentonite on our 1/2 acre pond. They explained how to apply the product and we got great results. Our pond holds water now. Definitely recommended!
Fast response and great turnkey service. We needed several truckloads of bentonite for sealing at our construction site. Not only did they arrange prompt delivery, but they executed the trenching and application. Art from their team was very helpful in ensuring everything was conducted without a hitch. A+
