I would simply do a search using keywords such as "garden ponds virginia", select images, and click on the photos you like - hopefully, these will link you to companies that do such installations. Also, you could do a search for Aquascape certified contractors for your area. Aquascape is a major player in the manufacture of garden pond equipment, and they have many certified contractors across the US. Good luck with this!

If you eliminate the shallow water zones from these ponds, you will experience fewer frogs and snakes. They just don't find open water attractive. Your designer will need to know how to work around this constraint.

Thanks for the feedback! The upright plant at the back is a "Waterfall" Japanese Maple, and the lower shrub in the front is a Carol Mackie Daphe. Hope this helps!
