Joe Granato, the owner of Star Ridge Aquatics, has operated North Carolina's only full service aquatic nursery and supply center for over 25 years. He has been helping homeowners, farmers, communities, and businesses by supplying water gardens and biological pond management.

From the design, to the building, to maintaining—from start to finish— they provide everything you need for water gardens. They grow over 100 varieties of aquatic plants, have thousands of fish from which to choose and stock all the supplies needed to build and maintain water gardens, koi ponds and pondless waterfalls right here in Moore County.

A water feature from Star Ridge Aquatics could consist of a water garden, a koi pond, a pondless waterfall, or a fountain. All will bring years of joy with the beauty of the rock work and landscaping, the intoxicating sound of the moving water, the relaxing movement of the calm, swimming fish and the excitement of the birds who will come to drink and bathe.

All year long, through every season, the water feature is attractive and alive. In spring, nature wakes as the frogs begin to sing, the fish awaken from their winter slumber, and the plants begin to emerge. As temperatures rise and the day light gets longer, the water lilies and lotus begin to bloom. The waterfall attracts birds and butterflies, and the sound brings relaxation.
