We have been working with Flexcrete for many years now on tons of projects and we love the results it provides our ponds and large water feature projects! Below is a flyer Flexcrete created showcasing a fountain we built at the Robstown City Hall. Learn more at Flexcrete.com
The addition of decorative yard art is taking over neighborhood backyards all over.
People are looking for new and innovative ideas to dress up their yards and add touches of
whimsy. Backyard chickens have also become the latest craze. Everyone is jumping on the
bandwagon to be homesteaders. Aquaria Services came up with a new innovative way to
combine both of these crazes.
David, our resident Decorative Concrete Artisan, applied his numerous skills and with a
collaboration of creativity amongst the Aquaria team. After much “discussion” we were able to
come up with the final creation, a Trio of Decorative Concrete Mushrooms. Plumb lines were
run to chicken water nipples, hidden within the underside of the large Mushroom. This allowed
for the chickens to sip a cool drink as they passed by or rested in the shade the mushrooms
To add another element to the design, Glow Stones were imbedded within the
concrete tops. These Glow Stones are charged by the sun and create a nightly glo...
This little fountain had completely gunked up and wasn't flowing at all. Aquaria Services Inc. stepped in and cleaned it right up. We replaced the old, crumbling reservoir basin and made sure the vase plumbing was in good shape too.
The most difficult part of these fountains is making sure everything is level so the water comes out from all sides at the same time.
We were able to get this one leveled out and working like a charm.
Backyard water gardens are always a bounty of green and colorful flowers and plants.
This can be an extremely beautiful addition to any property. But as beautiful as water gardens
can be, they can also be deceiving. Underneath there can lurk a horror of a mess.
The addition of a good filtration system is essential in keeping up the appearance and
water quality of the water garden. Throughout time, a water garden can give an illusion of
“clean” clear water, but eventually all ponds and water gardens inevitably will need a MuckOut.
Airborne debris, such as leaves, branches, grass clippings, etc. all create a layer of rotting
material on the bottom of your pond. This not only can cause discoloration of the water, but
also can interfere with the chemistry of the water, possibly causing distress on any pond
MuckOuts can be very messy work. It requires you to get down and dirty. Luckily
Aquaria Service Techs don’t mind the nasty. Especially if the end results can be clean, clear
This client had a very small patio pond full of beloved koi. When it was time to upgrade, we went BIG.
This is not your typical pond. There are no water lilies, no terraced and trickling waterfalls, and no lavish landscaping. No, this pond is all about the fish and their comfort as well as the happiness of the client.
This pond is around 8 feet deep and a whopping 9000 gallons! It has a secluded cave built in, which offers the koi a dark and cold stress-free zone. Four Sheer Descent waterfalls create ideal aeration for the large inhabitants.
This pond is so nice that even the owners have been know to join their koi from time to time in a swim!

We worked with the Coastal Bend Audubon Society to create an environmentally conscious water feature that could be enjoyed by both the birds and the bird watchers!
David created some beautiful carved concrete leaves that drip and flow into a little concrete stream, which disappears seamlessly into the stony ground. This water feature is powered by several solar panels, leaving behind a very green footprint (and a few bird foot prints as well).
