Imagine for a moment coming home after a long day at the office. You walk in the front door, set your briefcase down, grab a cold glass of lemonade, and head right back out the back door.
Quickly you sit down in your favorite chair and put your feet up. You notice your water lily in full bloom. A dragonfly flies by. A frog is sneaking a peek at you from under a rock. Birds are singing in perfect chorus with your melodious waterfall. You finned friends swim by your feet. All the worries and stresses of the day simply melt away in an instant. You have stepped into your own backyard oasis. This is your new lifestyle. This is the water garden lifestyle!
Looking for plants or fish for your water garden? We highly recommend Murphy's Water Gardens as the area's leading supplier for aquatic plants, koi, and goldfish. Ron and Cindy Murphy grow their own spectacular plants in house, unlike the other local competitors locally.

Water has long been one of our most popular natural resources. For years, doctors have preached the benefits of incorporating it into our diets for improved health. Rarely can you find a recreational spot without some sort of water as a main attraction. And now, water is weaved into landscapes across the country as people bring a little peace of paradise to their own backyard.
Water's magnetic properties are not just chemical. The thirst for water runs deep in our minds, touching on emotions that lead to enjoyment. Think of the babbling brook you used to play in as a child or the old fishing hole where you caught your first fish. Memories such as these always bring joy to our lives.
In addition to emotions, adding water to your landscape significantly increases your property value, which is important in a slowing housing market. According to the National Association of Realtors, nearly 20% of home buyers say they consider attractive landscaping to be "very important".There is nothing more attractive or eye catching as water in a landscape. Having the all important differentiating factor is what will set your property apart from all the others!
Why Tropical Waterscapes?
There are many landscape companies that offer water features as one of the countless other services they provide. However would you expect your doctor to also be your roofer? Of course not! Each of them are in specialized professions, so why would you let the same company that mows grass, lays sod, and trims bushes construct a water feature for you? In fact in 2007, 45% of our total revenues came from repairing or replacing water features constructed by these "landscapers".
Tropical Waterscapes is the area�s leading authority on water features. Our company does nothing except build and maintain water features. We are one of only 7 Certified Aquascape Contractors in the entire State of Missouri. We have the education and experience to build beautiful, functional water features that far surpass expectations, and best of all we get it done right the first time! Simply put, we are the Midwest�s Water Feature Professionals!
A Nightmare on Pond Street
In every city in the United States lurks many evil secrets. This is the story of Froggy Krueger. Froggy terrorized everyone on Pond Street with his shovel, creating one horrible water feature after another. Don't let Froggy build your pond! The only guarantee he gives his customers is that they will have nightmares about all the green algae in their pond, the sick fish, him, and his evil, unnatural pond building ways. These are a few pictures of Froggy's most recent ponds
Seriously though these people spent countless thousands of dollars to have these built, which is no laughing matter. What is even worse is when they call us to come and fix other contractor's mistakes, and then we have to bill them sometimes thousands more, when it could have, and should have been done right the first time. Stories like Froggy Krueger give us good pond guys a really bad rap, and they are not very good for business either when people think this is they only way to build a pond.
A sad fact is that in 2007, over 45 percent of our revenues came from revamping existing water features that were built the wrong way by 'landscape companies' who build water features as one of their countless other services. Keep that figure in mind when choosing a water feature installer! If you think we are kidding,Look at these ponds built by "landscapers" with little to no pond building knowledge!
If you are serious about not having a water feature like the ones above, call in the experts at Tropical Waterscapes. Together we can eliminate Froggy Krueger from our nightmares once and for all!
