Liquid Landscape Designs, Inc. is a New England-based company that specializes in the residential and commercial aquatic-landscape (aquascape) industry. With ties in the national water garden market, LLD provides the best possible services through the use of only top quality products with out the marriage to one specific product manufacturing company.
Jay Bearfield is the founder and lead designer of Liquid Landscape Designs and has been building award winning water features around New England for over a decade. An avid outdoorsman, Jay is constantly looking to incorporate natural water aspects, as found in his nature excursions, into all of his created water designs.
A former United States Marine, he has learned acute attention to detail, leadership, discipline and a strong work ethic. It was through that experience that first exposed him to the world of water gardening, seeing the work of the masters throughout Japan while stationed there for the period of a year. Touring the various city gardens and imperial palaces was what gave him the itch, an itch which he has fostered into what he now affectionately refers to as an addiction.
He spends his time outside of his work, interacting with nature and finding inspiration in all the little moments around him as he experiences the world through the eyes of his four beautiful children: Joshua, Natalie, Tristan and Nicholas, who teach him the truest meaning of love. And all of this would never be possible for him without the support, guidance and love from his most amazing wife Meg, who everyday continues to open his eyes to what true beauty really is.
