Travis Whitaker, owner of Waterscapes by Whitaker Farms, has been living the dream since 2004 when a lady asked if he could build her a koi pond. Growing up on a tobacco farm in rural North Carolina, hard work was a way of life, and after graduating from Elon University and coming back to the farm, he knew he wanted to do something that allowed him to be outdoors and creative â€” and if it could involve his love of water, even better! Now, 13 years after that first koi pond, Travis has established a name in the industry for not only providing natural-looking water features, but also exhibiting integrity and supreme relationship-building. He has a lot of repeat customers, and he loves the challenge of creating something new and exciting while educating about the pond life. Travis and his crew feel blessed to call this their full-time job.
