Charlie Ross is a Master-Certified Aquascape Contractor and co-owner of Virginia Water Gardens. He has been building water features since 1999. After serving in the Marine Corps, he landed in Virginia, just south of Washington, D.C.

He has built hundreds of ponds since then and still works with three of his original teammates who helped build that first pond.
