ST. CHARLES, IL NAMED WATER GARDEN CAPITAL OF THE WORLD


St. Charles, Ill. – Aquascape is proud to announce that St. Charles, Ill., home to Aquascape’s main headquarters, Aqualand, recently adopted the title of Water Garden Capital of the World.

Beaulieu and Aquascape agreed to put several water gardens throughout the city in an effort to earn the honor of Water Garden Capital of the World.

“It’s a good move by the city and by Aquascape to bring people to the town and experience how great man-made water features can be,” Beaulieu said. “Water garden are promoted, thus benefiting Aquascape and its customers, and St. Charles’ landscape is beautified, giving travelers yet another reason to visit.”
