Mission & Vision

We have a responsibility and a commitment to show you the joys of water gardening while raising the bar in customer service. When you choose FPF you have a friend in the pond business. We develop long-term relationships with our customers and value personalized focus. Without YOU there is no us so you are appreciated and listened to.

Our Values

We both grew up with our families spending time together outdoors and it was important to have a beautiful comfortable space in our own backyard to gather, relax, and enjoy ourselves.  We extend this family value into the heart of our business.


We are two artists with different strengths, styles and backgrounds aligning on work ethic, shared values and the end goal. Excellence in our work is important to both of us and we are proud of what we do. This makes us great partners in life and in business.

So why should you choose us?

We are one of the few full service pond companies in Central Texas. This means we are still there for you after we have built your pond. A lot of local installers build ponds but do not offer repairs or maintenance and that just raises some red flags, in our opinion. We feel it's important to stand by our work and develop long term relationships with our customers, educating and supporting you along the way. 

We want you to enjoy your water feature to it's fullest potential and that can't happen if you don't fully understand it or have someone you can trust to shoot you straight when it comes to repairs and maintenance. Our motto is 'Honesty Over the Dollar' and what that means is we will recommend what is best for the pond and not our pockets.
