My pond cost approximately $3500.00 US in material all labor was my own. Around here if I had it built by a pond pro it would have been $10,000 or more by their rates.

Mine in the front was about 5k. That is for everything, including lots of rocks, which are far more expensive than they should be. And delivery of rocks, which is also too expensive! I also bought a Helix skimmer. Includes the waterfall foam and pro-gun. Includes all landscape fabric, electrical and plumbing, rental of jackhammer for a particularly bad patch of hardpan clay -- everything. It really added up. But as RobAmy said, if I'd paid to have someone else do it, it would have been a lot more!

Back in 2004 it cost me about $1000 US for the liner, underlayment, falls box, skimmer and pump. I saved money by doing the work and gathering all the rocks from different sites.

My guess is around 7k liner, pallets of rocks, padding. The liner was the one big hit, around 40x40 feet
