Recent Projects

These clients have had us work on their property over a number of years.  We started in the back garden with a huge Koi pond with a long stream and a sitting area.  Next came some additional garden beds and a walkway that will eventually lead to the front garden.

This year we are starting on the front garden.  The idea is this will be a “secret” garden.  Plant material will screen the view so it will only be revealed as you walk the path.  There is a dry creek bed with a stone slab bridge that creates the threshold into the garden.  Huge basalt columns near the sitting area will shield your view and make you feel surrounded.  A small basalt dish stone water feature and plant material in shades of cream, yellow and purple with a strong emphasis on native plants will complete the garden.  Matching fencing is being added to enclose the space and finally a new entrance with a custom metal gate will be installed.

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.
