ST. CHARLES—Aquascape, Inc, the innovative leader of water features in North America and inventor of the low-maintenance ecosystem pond, invites the public to join them for their annual Water Garden Weekend, May 19-20, at Aquascape’s headquarters, 901 Aqualand Way in St. Charles, the Water Garden Capital of the World.
The event will begin on Saturday, May 19, at 8:30 a.m. with St. Charles Mayor Don DeWitte leading a ribbon-cutting ceremony to celebrate the grand re-opening of the Aquascape Designs Water Gardening Store. Located in the company’s atrium, the store and atrium area experienced extensive remodeling. Throughout the weekend, a range of family activities will be offered. “Ask the Expert” sessions, a decorative water feature installation, plant and fish sales, food, and activities for children are some of the highlights.
While attending Water Garden Weekend, visitors can explore Aquascape’s 250-foot-by-90-foot signature pond that replicates the Illinois watershed. A 10-foot waterfall with grotto for behind-the-falls viewing is a highlight of this spectacular water feature. Hundreds of hardy waterlilies grace the surface of the pond, reminiscent of a Monet water garden painting.
In addition to Aquascape’s signature pond on the east side of the property, attendees can stroll the AquaGardens on the west side. Ecosystem ponds, Pondless® Waterfalls, decorative fountains, pergola, outdoor seating, and a patio and deck provide plenty of inspiration for adding water features to any landscape.
