Keep Your Water Feature Looking Its Best And Enjoy It All Year Long

If you already have a water feature, it’s probably the focal point of your home’s landscape. And as the focal point, you know that keeping it clean and functional is incredibly important.

When left neglected, your once beautiful, relaxing backyard spot becomes unwelcoming. With our maintenance services, we make sure that your water features are kept clear and functional so you can enjoy them for longer.

A water feature is an exotic and luxurious addition that makes your home stand out and increases its value, so it’s essential you keep it in top shape. Say goodbye to dirty, murky water, dying plants and fish, and an ordinary backyard. Welcome the beauty that water can bring to your life.

Meet Cash French

Hi! My name is Cash. Bay Area Waterscapes began as French’s Waterscapes in 1999. Before starting my own company, I gained valuable experience working with my dad in the landscaping business for 9 years.

My love for water is what drove me to my business in the pond world. I love designing, installing, maintaining, and repairing existing and new water gardens. At the end of the day, I love making them shine.

I am grateful I can use my experience to bring joy to others. I would do anything for my family, so giving homeowners their own vacation spot at home where they can reconnect with their families and spend more quality time together is both my mission and my biggest reward.

I built my own pond 10+ years ago and when it came time to redo the job, I spoke with many different people. It was clear after getting so many different ideas (and bids) that Cash and Bay Area Waterscapes was the only choice.

Yes, the only choice. He is creative and unwilling to accept just average. The design and layout of the finished pond was different (much better) than what we originally agreed to as the ‘environment’ of where the pond was going changed as rocks were brought in, excavation was being done, and overall layout and health of the pond was worked through.

We have always enjoyed our pond, but now, relaxing and enjoying being by the pond, being part of it, has enhanced our family greatly.



I am very pleased with the level of professionalism, promptness, and workmanship of Bay Area Waterscapes.

They were able to squeeze me in when no one else was available, and provided me with the utmost in service. My pond was thoroughly cleaned and extreme care was taken in ensuring all my fish were safely accounted for.

They are very knowledgeable and gave me some helpful tips in the care and maintenance of my pond.

I think they’re fair, honest, and take pride in their work and it shows. Thank you so much for providing such excellent service! I would highly recommend them!



French’s Waterscapes did an absolutely amazing job! Cash’s passion for what he does really shows in his quality and professionalism.

He transformed my backyard! I love being in my yard now! I can hear the water from virtually anywhere in my home and I love it!

It was all done in 2 days like he promised and all cleaned up ready to enjoy. Cash is great to work with. Easy going and he knows what he’s doing for sure. I’m so pleased that I’m considering doing a water feature in the front of my home!

French’s Waterscapes literally blew my expectations out of the water!! I welcome anyone to stop by and see what he created for me.
