ABOUT FRESHWATER ECOSYSTEMS
John Schwarzlose is a third generation water feature builder. Creating water features that transform ordinary landscapes into scenic outdoor settings is a Schwarzlose family tradition that dates back to the 1940s. Gene Schwarzlose, John's grandfather, started by building creek dams in the Texas Hill Country before moving to east Texas where John's Father, Bob Schwarzlose, continues the tradition of excellence in water design today.
After getting a degree in wildlife and fisheries science from Texas A&M and a brief stint working in wildlife management for the government, John combined his backgrounds in water feature construction and wildlife and fisheries management to get a job with a golf course design and land planning firm. Here his responsibilities included designing and overseeing the construction of water features that were both ecologically sound and visually stunning.
Since establishing his own company in 2008, John has developed a reputation for creating water features of unmatched natural beauty and character. While John ensures all his features are designed to be ecologically sound and make efficient use of natural resources, the real reason his customers choose him and his team is because no one else can seamlessly incorporate natural design elements into any landscape the way they can.
"Through the creative use of natural materials and existing landscape elements we create water features that are not only naturalistic, but are indistinguishable from mother nature."
Our experience and services include: Fishing lakes and ponds, golf course water features and planned community features, man made waterfalls and creeks, concrete creek dam construction, water feature and landscape design, construction, and project supervision/management.
