our company

Our company was formed in 2005 by UNC-W graduate Drew Thorndyke. Cape Fear Water Gardens has been proudly serving the Carolinas since, making our mark wherever possible. From the start, the vision has always been to bring a piece of mother nature into each of our client’s outdoor space with a natural but stunningly beautiful water feature.
