We build natural water gardens with wonderful sounding water falls. We use many different size stones and boulders in each pond and water feature including river rocks, “river jacks,” large boulders, small boulders and flat field stone. Our main objective is to make a feature as natural as possible that fits each client’s desires. We use flexible rubber liner because it allows us to make the pond exactly the shape we want. We are also able to be creative with the shape of the waterfalls. We use a mechanical filter/skimmer and a biological filter. Depending on the size of you pond we will design the mechanical systems including the pump so it meets all of your requirements and desires.
Our ponds are able to handle having a variety of life in them.
- Japanese koi
- And many other aquatic animals
Components of a water feature:
- Rubber liner
- Biological filter
- Rocks such as boulders, fieldstone, river jacks, and many more
- Under water lights so you can enjoy it at night

At Earth Shapers, we can design and build custom bridges for your landscaping needs. Rough cut wood bridges can be a wonderful design element if the rest of the landscaping fits with it. Wood decking can also make a very functional bridge that is very attractive. We can also create bridges built with concrete custom-cut stone pavers from Tennessee Crab Orchard stone or most any other stone you like.
We can construct a number of different types of walls, including some of the following:
- Dry stacked stone walls
- Landscape timber walls
- Concrete block walls
- Boulder walls
Walls can be built for function as well as beauty. A customer’s needs and ideas for a wall vary greatly. We can custom design and build a wall to meet all of your needs.
To create a beautiful environment to surround your home, our professional landscape designers can provide you with a unique look for your landscaping needs. Our general landscaping services include:
- Planting trees, shrubs and perennials of all sizes
- Grading and seeding of your lawn

Patios & Walkways
Patio options are vast and vary in many ways. We build patios using wood, brick or concrete pavers. These materials come in many different sizes and colors to create a special look complimentary to the rest of your landscaped features. For another attractive, and less expensive patio, we can also use peagravel and metal edging.
Walkways can be made out of stone, gravel, brick, concrete pavers and wood. When built in conjunction with other features such as patios or bridges, walkways can enhance the look of your design as well as provide function.
Pebble mosaics are a wonderful way to create artwork within your yard. Each design is unique and is painstakingly built to be beautiful and perfect. Mosaics can be applied to paths, patios, bridges and even stepping stones.
Our staff has been trained by an archeologist who has studied ancient mosaics, allowing us to reproduce the creation and varnishing techniques that allow our pebble mosaics to survive even the harshest weather and traffic conditions. This ensures that your mosaic will remain a part of your home for many years.
Commercial Maintenance Programs
We offer commercial maintenance programs that can be customized to each particular client and job site. The features included in our maintenance programs include:

Lighting your landscape design can allow you to enjoy the beauty of your property all hours of the day or night. It can be used to create special mood lighting effects and accentuate certain features of your design. Lighting can also be used to light up patios, walkways and decks to make those areas functional and safe for evening use.
Pond Maintenance Programs
When you have a new water pond/water garden it will require some maintenance. We will construct your water feature with low maintenance in mind. A pond maintenance program can be as involved as you like. We have some ponds that we maintain on a monthly basis for a very low expense.
