Meet Beau Bradley
When you love what you do, you stick with it, like Beau Bradley who has been creating artificial rockwork for over 3 decades.
Beau’s construction career began at the age of 16 when he started his first house painting business. After graduating high school, he operated his own drywall business until he became employed at the Fort Worth Zoo. As a carpenter, Beau worked in general exhibit construction and quickly worked his way up to assistant superintendent. By the time Beau became exposed to the artificial rockwork industry, he had already acquired a broad range of construction knowledge and experience.
Beau’s design style has evolved and been refined beyond creating artificial rocks into creating a specialty art using materials to create what nature intended. Beau has a magical talent where he can look at a backyard or landscape and visualize whatever the client wants. He intercepts any issues in terms of scale, balance, and color to harmonize with the vision of the customer. You dream it, Beau creates it!
In 1992 Beau started his own artificial rock company, Rock-Scapes. The company started off small, working out of 1967 Volkswagen Bug creating small waterfalls and ponds for residents in the DFW area. It didn’t take long before Beau and Rock-Scapes moved up to bigger jobs. Today Rock-Scapes’ resume includes Sea World of Texas, Isle of Capri Casino, Audubon Zoo, Dallas Zoo, Oklahoma City Zoo, Fort Worth Zoo, Amarillo Zoo, Coors sign with a waterfall in downtown Dallas, and the atrium at the Gaylord Hotel. Rock-Scapes’ resume does not only include commercial projects but also has an extensive resume of residential projects. Creating artificial rock work to enhance pools with waterfalls and grottos, ponds in a variety of sizes, retaining walls decorated with artificial rock, boulders and landscaping are just a few of their amazing creations. Each project reflects the personality of the client brought to life.
Today, Rock-Scapes has a large studio and an extensive library of rock molds taken from real rock faces. Beau is totally committed to producing the highest quality work in the field of artificial environments. Rockscapes strives to set themselves apart from other traditional contractors by utilizing alternative processes, styles, and methods. No one else can match the total commitment to creativity and professionalism that Rockscapes brings to each project.
There is no limit to what Rock-Scapes can do!
