About the owner

Jon Rasmussen is the owner and president of The Pond Company and pondways.com. With a artistic design and construction background, he has been dealing with ponds for many years. He was born in Pasadena and grew up in the San Gabriel Valley. His grandfather was a well-known local artist, craftsman, and contractor. Jon started working with him in masonry and construction in his childhood and teens. As soon as he graduated from high school, he started working in the water garden industry. In 1984, he built his first complete pond watergarden in a nearby residence in San Gabriel which remains functioning beautifully to this day. Jon continued in the watergarden industry while attending college to study graphic design. He worked in the design industry for John Scarkino Company and Sturdevant Design Group in Pasadena. In the 1980’s, after traveling through China and touring the many amazing gardens with gorgeous lotus in bloom, he was inspired to start up his own landscape construction company full-time, as a landscape contractor specializing in waterworks and ponds.
