Our Story

Oasis Ponds & Patios is locally owned and operated by Dave and Jenna VanLoon. They are located in Addison, NY, serving Corning, Elmira and the surrounding areas south of the Finger Lakes.


The VanLoon family has called the Twin Tiers of New York and Pennsylvania their home for many generations. Today, Dave is raising a family of his own, and is committed to the success of the region and its growth, both economically and socially. Growing up in a large family, he learned work ethic at an early age. Despite being a 3-sport athlete and active in his local church, he sought out employment with local dairy farmers, construction companies, and pizzerias; working multiple jobs all through high school and college. After graduating from New Covenant Academy in Mansfield, Dave stayed local and studied Business and Journalism at Mansfield University, where he took the field as a part of the Mounties’ Football program.



After the events of September 11th 2001, Dave deployed on his first combat mission to Iraq in 2005. After some time at home, he was sent into harm’s way again in 2008, this time to Afghanistan. In the following years, he achieved the rank of Staff Sergeant, and is still actively serving in the Army National Guard. Being no strangers to hard work and sacrifice, he decided to embark on a new adventure, this time in the business world, and Oasis Ponds & Patios was born.


The same passion, attention to detail, and spirit of excellence that served him well in his military career has now made Oasis Ponds & Patios what it is today. Dave expects only the highest levels of integrity and quality from both himself and his employees, and is committed to the delivery of products and services he can be proud of. You can expect this same attention to detail and standard of excellence with any of our hardscape installations, whether it’s a patio, retaining wall, walkway, driveway, fire pit, or an entire outdoor kitchen. What he is most excited about though, is bringing water features to the Twin Tiers. Oasis Ponds & Patios has partnered with the world leader in water gardens, Aquascape Inc, to provide the highest quality products and craftsmanship available. Water is one of the key elements of landscape, yet it is often overlooked. We believe water should be a part of any landscape- and it can be done on any budget! Whether you’re looking for a traditional koi pond, a majestic waterfall, or a small fountainscape, we can’t wait to bring life to your landscape and create a personal oasis that you and your family will enjoy for years to come!
