Cool Ponds History
The Beginning of Cool Ponds
Steve and Staci Wicker have been in the landscape business since 1991, and in the early 2000s, they built their first pond and were instantly hooked. They began installing ponds for their landscape customers but had nowhere to send their customers for supplies or for maintenance services. In 2004, they purchased the current property on Hanna as the supply store, installation showcase, and installation hub.
After seeing customers repeatedly peer into the main display pond and say, "That is a cool pond," the name Cool Ponds seemed fitting.
Organic Outdoor Living
Cool Ponds has had the distinction of becoming central Indiana's pond experts. In 2016 we held our biannual pond tour, and we heard many people remark that they were surprised to see we completed plantings, patios, and some very unique shade structures as well. We realized we needed to rebrand ourselves so that more people realized how all-inclusive we truly are. After all, we are a full landscape company.
Cool Ponds Organic Outdoor Living came to be in 2018.
Our love for the outdoors began years ago. We are fortunate enough to have a business centered around our passion for nature and spreading that passion to others.
The Wicker Family
The Wickers have owned and operated Cool Ponds since its inception. It is a true family-run company, as Steve and Staci's oldest daughter Kasey and son Steven both have lifelong careers at Cool Ponds.
Kasey is the retail manager and business development head. She has a biology degree from Ball State. Steven is the project manager and designer and has been in and out of ponds since he could walk. The Wickers feel very blessed to run a business together.
