Fox Island Project

These are repeat customers who have been building their retirement home on Fox Island.  It is a new construction home on what was a vacant lot.  Rick’s garden design includes 500 yards of soil, 26 new trees, over 1100 plants, two water features, pathways, lawn, a vegetable garden, a destination patio, a fire pit and lighting throughout.  Take a look at Rick’s garden design plan and the before and after photos.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Burien Project

This customer wanted a new water feature in the back garden with enough sound to drown out the nearby road noise.  The pond is about 14’x10’ with a waterfall about 25’ long.  We removed the chain link fence, installed a new water feature and underwater and terrestrial lighting.

Rick Perry installed his first pond in his parents garden when he was only 15 years old! Ponds were built out of concrete back then. His parents still own that home and the original pond has been expanded and rebuilt twice, as the technology in pond liners, pumps, and filters continued to evolve. Rick’s love of water in the garden never went away and for over 16 years he continued to install ponds in his own homes and those of his friends and family. After someone suggested that Rick could make a living off of doing what he loved, Falling Water Designs was born. Rick has been involved in the water garden industry longer than there has been a water garden industry. He is very excited by the continuing innovations that are making it possible for every homeowner to enjoy a low maintenance, affordable water feature in the garden. Rick has been interviewed and featured in Koi World Magazine, Sports Illustrated, and Water Features for Every Garden by Helen Nash.
