AquaScapes Retail Division

DSLD’s water garden retail center is Birmingham’s newest and most comprehensive pond and fountain resource center. We are conveniently located on Highway 280 in the Greystone area across the street from the Lee Branch shopping center.

AquaScapes is a design/build pond contractor specializing in residential and commercial ponds and fountains. We also build waterfalls, streams and ornamental ponds. The first step is to schedule a consultation with one of our pond and water feature designers. The design process may start with a simple proposal, a conceptual drawing or a full master plan of your property with your water feature drawn in context and scale within its surroundings.

Water Garden Design Process

The initial consultation includes an on-site assessment of all factors of your property including form, function and adding sustainable value to your home long-term. During the meeting with you, DSLD will discuss your outdoor aquatic needs, desires and goals. They get to know you and how you plan to use your water garden. DSLD then develops a design plan that encompasses and considers the on-site information they’ve gathered, your needs and the existing landscape. DSLD prides itself on creating designs that transform your outdoor space into an expression of your identity while adding the wonderful peace and tranquility that comes with the sound and sight of water!
