About Us

shop A Piece of Paradise, a Division of San Antonio Builders, was established in 1960. We bring over 50 years of experience and dedicated craftsmanship to our construction work.

Our goal is to provide you with the best design and construction of water gardens and fish ponds, at the least cost, in a timely and orderly fashion.

Dave San Antonio, owner and designer, will travel to your home or business to design the perfect water garden feature, landscape lighting, and/or landscaping for your site. He shares his creative and extensive knowledge, all for a minimal cost. After the consultation, Dave writes up a detailed proposal complete with the design and the necessary equipment and manpower to complete the project. It is then up to you to decide if you would like our experienced crew to perform their magic.

In addition to our design and construction work, we maintain a show place displaying unique water gardens set up to provide a sample of our work. For the Do-It-Yourselfers, our Pond Shop offers a large selection of ideas, pond supplies, koi pond supplies, water garden supplies, and materials for your garden pond construction & maintenance. We also offer wholesale pricing to qualified landscapers and contractors.

At A Piece of Paradise, quality service is our top priority! We believe that our customers come first and we try to satisfy and fulfill their every want and desire. Our sales staff is well trained, with significant experience in the field. We pride ourselves on taking the time to answer any questions that you may have, no matter how few or many, technical or basic, we are here for you! We can help you design the water garden of your dreams, gather the necessary pump(s), filter(s), etc., and give you expert tips and tricks on the finer details of pond construction. Our staff will help you pick out fish and plants that will suit your garden accordingly, and we will repair your products and/or pond to the best of our abilities, or we will find an alternate solution to solve your problem.
