What is a disappearing water feature?

Want a water feature but don't have much time to maintain it? We can design and build a custom disappearing water feature to fit your needs. This type of water feature is very easy to maintain and can be made to look like the water disappears into the ground (Aquifer), like the one we built below, or can be made to have a few inches of water depth over the gravel. Call us to set up a consultation for more information.  Here you can see one that we designed and built in March of 2006, in the main entrance of The Mesas at Canyon Springs, a newly  built gated community in Stone Oak. On this water feature, our client wanted a natural looking water feature in the entrance, but did not want to have the added liability of having a body of water where some one could easily drown, so we suggested  a disappearing water feature.

Web Changes                                                                       

This is where we'll announce the most recent additions to our web site. Some users have recently experienced difficulties in viewing our videos and our slideshow. If this problem is happening to you, you can easily correct this by going to your "Advanced" Tab in your internet settings on your browser (for ex. internet explorer) Under your advanced options you need to find and correct the option that says "Allow video and animations from sites that do not use an external media player." Your advanced internet options our set up as basically a check list. Once you select the correct box, then click "apply" or "apply changes" and then click "o.k." If you have any other questions or problems adjusting your settings, give me a call 210-422-7166 and I will gladly guide you through the process step by step over the phone.      Rafa Jr.             

We are still experiencing technical difficulties with our navigation bars.
