Mr Giampietro's talent and exceptional skill is evident immediately upon observation of one of his amazing works of art. His passion for his creations is equally impressive as his professionalism and mutual respect amongst his peers and clientele. One would say his abilities seem to be innately part of who he is and the specialized trade which he so masterfully represents. Lisa Underwood Owner Designer


Matt is amazing! My project consisted of a complete remodel to my front, side and back yard. I showed Matt photos of the contemporary concepts I loved and he put together a design that was perfect! I am incredibly happy with the outcome. Matt is a visionary. He is terrific at all the details of scaling to make the project visually balanced, color selections for appeal as well as requiring his team to do a top notch job. They do not cut corners and all his employees do the job right the first time! I found Matt to be very easy to work with as my project shifted several times during the build. We communicated easily and worked together to success!


Matt, your pleasant personality, and easy going manner were very agreeable to work with. The design drawing and explanation showed your knowledge of plants, creativity, and passion for what you do. You know what belongs where, what will do well and look well. You listen to input and suggestions, and at the same time, courteously explain, without an ego but with your plant knowledge what is best. The enthusiasm and love for what you do is what I felt is the guiding force in your designing and planting. The design and planting were on a very tight schedule. You said you would make it happen. As a hands-on professional, you showed up, worked with your men, did what you said. You supervised the whole thing to make sure it went right and if something didn't go right, you fixed it immediately. Your costs were fair; you stayed on budget, and got the job done on time. The finished landscape looked like it had been there for quite a while, since you chose mature plants. I appreciate your expediency, your pleasantness, and how well you work with a high energy, detail-oriented woman. Gylian Solay, Professional Organizer, Hawaii & Florida


We have worked with Mr. Matthew Giampietro for the past 2 years. Our extensive project consisted of installing flagstone around the pool, pool patios, pillars, walkways and landscaping . He was also instrumental in constructing our outdoor kitchen and driveways. Throughout the entire process, Matthew and his crew were professional, respectful, patient and always maintained open lines of communication. His craftsmanship is exceptional and his attention to detail is impeccable. We appreciated his creativity, vision, and passion for our project. As with large projects, Matthew was also involved with coordinating and collaborating with other disciplines on the job site and Matthew made sure he followed through each time. We would highly recommend Matthew without reservation for future projects.


I could not be more pleased with the results of Matt and his team. I had an idea for an enclosed garden and sent Matt a single photo of a concept. From that, he created exactly what I envisioned. Matt knew the appropriate size, scope, plant selection, color, literally everything to fit the plan to my yard. There is no doubt he is incredibly talented but what was exceptional was his enthusiasm level for every detail matched mine. WFG separated themselves from other contractors in that they were on time, on budget, courteous, neat, and most especially hard working. Matt was accessible everyday and there on site all the time. Even after the completion of the project, Matt returned to ensure irrigation was functioning properly and that the plants were thriving. WFG was a pleasure to work with from start to finish.


Matt Giampietro far exceeded my expectations. I could not be more pleased. Great attitude, great work ethic, and tremendous ability. I started with an image on Houzz, saw a retaining wall from a quarry in Wisconsin, I ended up shipping 15 truckloads of granite and dolomite limestone to South Florida. Matt has built the same retaining walls I saw on Houzz, but with more intricate work, splitting the limestone very thin in places, adding a dramatic look. He went on to create veneer out of the stone, covering outside walls, a fireplace and columns. Then we used the limestone boulders to create a 13,000 gallon koi pond with waterfalls and a stream. The guy is so creative! If you are considering any stonework, any at all, hire Matt, I assure you that you will not be disappointed.


AWESOME! Words alone cannot describe Matthew's amazing creativity, artistry and talent. WFG exceeded our high expectations. Matthew's team is talented, courteous, hard-working, neat and on-time (gasp!). It was a pleasure to work with them and we say this with all sincerity (and tons of experience working with So FL contractors)! Originally contracted WFG to install a boulder garden near pool and dock area. Were so impressed we immediately re-hired them to create a tropical plant garden out front and install a tall waterfall & pond feature outside the dining room window. All three are unique, creative and beyond beautiful!! Every neighbor has stopped by to pick up WFG's card and to admire their work. Ditto for our friends. In seventh heaven this Xmas. Do yourself a favor: hire Matthew Giampietro. Look no further, you have found a quality company who will not disappoint.


Designed & constructed all our extensive hardscape finishes for an exclusive private residential estate where detailing was held to the highest standards


We can honestly say that this was the best design/contractor situation we have ever experienced. From the very beginning Matt worked with us to get the scope and design of the project going. We were able to work our vision along with his skills and end up with a plan we all loved. He went so far as to bring in pictures of his past completed projects, and samples of the materials we could use. He also listened to our ideas and looked at photos we had taken illustrating ideas we wished to include. We sat down with him and settled on that final plan. Throughout the project, he found the time to talk to us frequently, considering and combining our ideas with his for any modifications we wished to make. As he worked, we realized what a perfectionist he is. Every water effect was done slowly and in a manner which gave all of us the perfect end product. He really is an artist. He kept things within our cost limits and supplied us with a number of "extras" which further enhanced our design. He also showed us ways we could get many of the same effects in a less expensive manner. He was able to bring in people to take care of both the water and electrical needs at a far price, and supervised their work as well. He was hands on throughout the entire project. After supplying the fountain construction and the rock installation, he went on to design foliage which added depth and contrast to a beautiful rock and fountain creation, and finally designed a fabulous lighting scheme which shows off all his work in a very dramatic and really "awesome" way. He showed up on time every day and completed the project in a timely manner. Everyone who has seen the finished installation absolutely loves the total effect of this landscaping project--night and day. We would highly recommend him to anyone who wants a truly unique and breathtaking landscaping experience.


After meeting with several pool contractors in the span of 6 years, no one came even close to the creativity or design work that we envisioned. The owners, staff and workers were extremely professional and were consistent in their delivery. Having worked in the construction industry for years, I am always skeptical about what is promised and what is actually delivered. I can say without a doubt that they delivered as promised and the outcome of their work is exceptional. I would recommend them to anyone who is interested in having a unique product that is functional and made by professionals who take pride in their work. Thank you! AEA


Matthew is a role model to me in the industry . He is the most talented creator of waterscapes I know and probably the best company in the area or even the country . He is a talented and innovative designer and my first choice go to company for anything to do with water features . Highly recommend being on his waiting list for a project.


It was a pleasure working with Matthew Giampietro. He is a visionary with landscape design, a master stonemason and an artist with plants. He is thoroughly professional, his crew are diligent and skilled, and he delivered the project on time and on budget. My front yard is a showstopper and my back yard is an oasis, all thanks to Matt.


From first contact on Houzz to last day on the job Matt was outstanding and professional. He is an expert in the field but has a clear passion for his work. He also has hard working professionals working with him to expertly install all of the material, and these workers are as dedicated to a job well done. Communication is easy and follow up is prompt.


Waterfalls Fountains and Gardens is one of the most professional service companies I have experienced in South Florida. The work at our home was highly customized and meticulously performed. The finished product reflected the expertise and personal pride of Matt and his crew. The team showed up on time every day and never left for the day until the site was clean and orderly. Throughout the project (a rock fountain for the pool and a specialized seat wall) we were consulted on potential options and recommended field adjustments. Given the premium craftsmanship, I believe we received good value for our money and we never encountered unanticipated overages or change orders. I would recommend this company without reservation and will turn to them again if the need arises. It is a Class A operation with really hard-working, talented and honest people.


After interviewing many contractors for this project, the one factor that set Matt apart from all the rest was his passion. That passion was so evident throughout the project and especially when he finished it. Every resident in my building absolutely loves the finished project, and that is a very hard task to pull off in my building!!


We solicited bids from three companies for this job. Waterfalls Fountains & Gardens had the best references, requisite expertise and was competitively priced. They fully lived up to their reputation by delivering, on time, a quality product as depicted in the contract. If the opportunity presents itself I would definitely use them again.


Matt listened to what I wanted and created exactly that! He started and finished within the time period that he had promised and respected the budget we had agreed on. Couldn't be happier!


Very professional company. all members of crew were very respectful. we are very happy with the patio. The project needed to be completed in a very short period of time. Matt and his employees were able to complete project quickly with excellent results.


I've brought Matt onto multiple projects over the last 25 years. Not only is he extremely talented as a builder of fine waterfalls but his background in landscape architecture has given him the ability to create highly detailed outdoor living spaces. He knows his craft well and is a true artisan.

Matthew is one of the best masons I have ever worked with. He is thoughtful, kind and honest. And his work is stunning and budget friendly. He is a perfectionist. I have worked with him as a supplier for 8 years and I would hire him in a second. He will watch your pocket book and create art at the same time.


Installed two stone walkways, a stone patio with boulders and a boulder sculpture behind the pool. Matt Giampietro is a master at his craft, a perfectionist and a professional through and through. We HIGHLY recommend this company.


Matthew Giampietro is a very talented waterfall builder. He has great concept of scale and the dynamics of a water feature. Besides he is a good business man and I recommend him highly for his work, as a professional of his wwork and as a person. Orlando Comas Landscape Architect.
