Aquascape, Inc, opened the Aquascape Water Gardening Store on April 18, located at “Aqualand,” Aquascape’s corporate headquarters in St. Charles, Ill.
“The store provides a critical research and development opportunity for Aquascape,” stated Gary Wittstock, store manager and father of Greg Wittstock, founder and CEO of Aquascape, Inc. “Aquascape’s construction division provides field R&D for our contractor-grade products. Now we can better identify consumers’ needs at the retail level and this will help us to offer top-quality water feature products for the retail market.”
The Aquascape Water Gardening Store provides interactive water feature displays to help customers envision and plan water features in their own landscapes. Pondless Waterfalls, ecosystem ponds, fountainscapes, and rainwater harvesting systems are on display both indoors and out. The store carries everything necessary to install and maintain a beautiful water feature. Aquatic plants and live fish are available for purchase in addition to pond supplies and water gardening books.
A replication of a home’s façade has been constructed inside the store to demonstrate Aquascape’s new RainXchange System, which is a rainwater harvesting system paired with a decorative water feature. Permeable pavers, a pergola, fountainscapes, and an ecosystem pond finish this unique “outdoor living” display.
In addition to consumers and water gardening hobbyists, pond installers are welcome to bring their clients to view the water feature displays in the outdoor “AquaGardens” to help with design and inspiration. A design center is located in the store making it convenient to design a water feature and then purchase the necessary products without having to make an extra trip or wait for product to ship.
