25 years – Leader in the field
Waterscapes Australia was founded and incorporated with the mission of bringing Australia up to speed in water garden construction.

Since its founding in 2008, Waterscapes has built and designed natural water features in every region of Australia, being the first to introduce the Aquascapes ecosystem pond to Australia in 2009.


Patrick Handley, CEO
Founder and sole operator of Waterscapes Australia, Patrick designs and builds bespoke, one-of-a-kind natural water features for the home, corporate and municipal landscapes.

Patrick is a horticulturist, permaculturist and environmentalist with over twenty-five years of global experience in the natural water feature industry.

Patrick was the first to bring Aquascapes technology over to Australia and has been importing it from the US since 2008. In 2014, Aquascapes Australia began running autonomously, leaving Waterscapes to focus solely on water feature construction.
