Hydro Dramatics Garners National Recognition For Its Water Features At Missouri Botanical Garden
Hydro Dramatics, the St. Louis-based fountain consulting firm, and some of the many water features it has developed at the world-renowned Missouri Botanical Garden, are being featured as the cover story of the January 2007 issue of Watershapes Magazine, a national publication for designers, engineers and builders of pools, ponds, waterfalls, spas, fountains and all other forms of contained, controlled water.
Hydro Dramatics recently completed several new fountains and water features at the Missouri Botanical Garden including the Doris I. Schnuck Children’s Garden: A Missouri Adventure, the George Washington Carver Garden and the Ottoman Garden. Hydro Dramatics has an exceptionally long history of service to the Garden, having created, designed and maintained nearly every water feature within its 79 acres for the past 30 years.
The Missouri Botanical Garden, long considered to be one of the top three public gardens in the world, was founded in 1859 and is a National Historic Landmark as well as a center for botanical research, education and horticultural display.
Established in 1972, Hydro Dramatics is a division of Missouri Machinery & Engineering Co. Inc. (www.momach.com). This affiliation enhances Hydro Dramatics’ technological and fountain creative expertise and provides its design team with direct access to the fabrication/manufacturing capabilities needed to tackle the most sophisticated fountain projects.
Hydro Dramatics created the Gateway Geyser, the world’s tallest fountain, on the East St. Louis riverfront. Among recently completed projects are the water features at the renovated Grand Basin and Jewel Box in Forest Park, the Cypress Swamp at the Saint Louis Zoo and the fountains at Saint Louis University.
In addition to creating fountains locally, regionally and nationally, Hydro Dramatics provides fountain equipment overseas. The firm’s recent international projects include designing and creating fountains in San Juan, Puerto Rico; within the city of Doha, Qatar; and at the U.S. Embassy in Moscow.
