You’ve probably heard of a few success stories that started in a garage. Rewind 33 years and you would find Mark Wise, the owner, huddled over a drafting table in his home office contemplating a pool design in the Westlake neighborhood. As Austin has grown, so has our company. With Central Texas weather affording outdoor living all-year-round more and more homeowners are expanding their living space far beyond their backyards and we are building a lot more than just pools. However, there are a few things that haven’t changed after all these years and are best represented in our Mission Statement:

Austin Water Designs mission is to provide custom quality outdoor living spaces that fit the needs of our clients, are aesthetically pleasing and integrate seamlessly into the unique aspects of their property. To maintain a "whatever-it-takes" attitude and a commitment to quality and service through every step of our process to ensure that the experience and final project has the Austin Water Designs mark of excellence! 

To become a sought-out resource beyond the project for each of our clients. To provide useful, pertinent information from design phase through the life of their project. To do well, doing good, by supporting the local community through sponsorships, education, donations, utilization of local services, vendors, suppliers and with a referral program that utilizes local businesses. To employ, grow and retain the best people. To hold true to our core values of integrity and reliability coupled with fun and play!
