What They Can Build
First, you want to determine what the company can build. After all, you don’t want to go through all the steps before realizing that the company you want to go with can’t do more than put a garden hose in a hole in the ground.
Not every company specializes in water features and can’t create a waterfall design in your Long Beach, NY backyard. Before you start considering any other tips in this guide, ensure the business can create what you want.
Check Their Reviews
Next, you should check the reviews. You’ve probably heard that you should take reviews with a grain of salt, and that’s still true. Some people may leave bad reviews out of bitterness, letting their emotions cloud their judgment. Also, some people may leave glowing reviews for mediocre work because they liked one aspect of the company.
When looking at reviews for a Nassau County company, consider both positive and negative reviews. Look for similarities between reviews.
Did multiple people compliment the company’s customer service? Did many say the work wasn’t worth the cost? These may be good indicators of how your experience will go.
Ask for Referrals
Do you know anyone who had a garden designed by a landscaping company in Long Beach, NY? If so, ask who they went with and if they would recommend them.
You can trust the friends and family in your life, so they’ll give you the best referrals. Did they love the waterfall design the company made?
Did they dislike the customer service? Are they happy with the results? Listen to them talk about their experience and take their referral into consideration.
How many experiences Do They Have?
You also want to look into the company and see how much experience they have. While experience doesn’t always mean they’ll do a good job, it’s an important factor to consider.
Is the company brand-new? If so, the company may not have the right equipment needed to do the job. For example, they may not have the best flexible liners for your pond.
If the company doesn’t have a lot of reviews, you may find that they don’t have a lot of experience either. Before choosing a company with little experience, consider if you’re willing to take the risk. You may not know what to expect if they don’t have a lot of examples of their work to show off.
Are They Certified?
You also want to know if the Long Beach, NY company is certified. The last thing you want is someone illegally working on your backyard waterfalls. Before hiring them, make sure they have all the proper certifications.
Look at Their Portfolio
Finally, you should look at the Nassau County company’s portfolio. Do they have many examples of a home waterfall they’ve done? How do the pictures look? Do they show broken pond liners or cracks at the sides of the pond?
Or does the shallow water look beautiful in the small pond? You can see the water moving even though a still photo, and you can imagine the sound of the waterfall running. If that’s what the photos look like in the company’s portfolio, call them immediately.
It takes a lot of work to build a pond or backyard waterfalls, and you can’t just choose anybody. Call Scott Anderson Design at 516-729-5668 today. Whether you want us to create a pond or water feature, we guarantee that you’ll love the result. Then, all you have to do is fill the pond, sit back, and relax.
Some information about Long Beach, NY
Long Beach is a city in Nassau County, in New York, United States. It takes up a central section of the Long Beach Barrier Island, which is the westernmost of the outer barrier islands off Long Island’s South Shore. As of the 2010 United States census, the city population was 33,275, and 33,454 in 2019. It was incorporated in 1922, and is nicknamed ‘The City By the Sea’. The Long Beach Barrier Island is surrounded by Reynolds Channel to the north, east and west, and the Atlantic Ocean to the south.
The city of Long Beach’s first inhabitants were the Algonquian-speaking Lenape, who sold the area to English colonists in 1643. From that time, while the barrier island was used by baymen and farmers for fishing and harvesting salt hay, no one lived there year-round for more than two centuries. The bark Mexico, carrying Irish immigrants to New York, ran ashore on New Year’s Day.
Austin Corbin, a builder from Brooklyn, was the first to attempt to develop the island as a resort. He formed a partnership with the Long Island Rail Road (LIRR) to finance the New York and Long Beach Railroad Co., which laid track from Lynbrook to Long Beach in 1880. That same year, Corbin opened Long Beach Hotel, a row of 27 cottages along a 1,100-foot (340 m) strip of beach, which he claimed was the world’s largest hotel. In its first season, the railroad brought 300,000 visitors to Long Island. By the next spring, tracks had been laid the length of the island, but they were removed in 1894 after repeated washouts from winter storms.

In 1906, William H. Reynolds, a 39-year-old real estate developer and former state senator, became involved in the area. Reynolds had already developed four Brooklyn neighborhoods (Bedford–Stuyvesant, Borough Park, Bensonhurst, and South Brownsville), as well as Coney Island’s Dreamland, the world’s largest amusement park at the time. Reynolds also owned a theatre and produced plays.
