Certified Aquascape Contractor (CAC)
Less than 20 Landscape Contractors in New Jersey Have Earned this Prestigious Designation
We are very proud of our certification by Aquascape.
There are an estimated 4,000 landscape contractors in New Jersey and less than 20 have been recognized by Aquascape. The initial training is rigorous and each certified contractor is required to attend continual training and education seminars. They are also required to maintain a proven record of outstanding work and dedicated customer service and support.
Certifications are one way to determine if a landscape contractor is up to date on the latest materials and techniques.
Aquascape is recognized as the standard setter in the pond and water gardening industry. Certified installers of Aquascape have installed tens of thousands of water projects and their methods draw on all of that shared experience.
Aquascape water features rely on a natural balance of circulation, filtration, plants, fish, rocks and gravel to ensure sustainability and beauty.
If you would like us to design a breathtaking water feature like a pond, waterfall or stream for your property or if you would like to incorporate one of those features into your landscape project, we can make your dream a reality.
