Rick Perry


Rick installed his first pond in his parent’s garden when he was only 15 years old! Back then you built ponds out of concrete. His parents still own that home and the original pond has been expanded and rebuilt twice as 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. In April of 2000, someone suggested that Rick could make money doing what he loved and Falling Water Designs was born. 

Rick has been involved in the water garden industry longer than there has been a water garden industry, and 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 his or her garden. Rick has been interviewed and published articles in Koi World Magazine, Sports Illustrated, and Waterfeatures for Every Garden by Helen Nash.
