"It's unwise to pay too much. But, it's worse to pay too little. When you pay too much, you lose a little money, that is all. When you pay too little, you sometimes lose everything, because the thing that you bought was incapable of doing the thing it was bought to do. It can't be done.
If you deal with the lowest bidder, it is well to add something for the risk you run. And if you do that, you will have enough to pay for something better.
There is hardly anything in the world that someone can't make a little worse and sell a little cheaper—and people who consider price alone are this man's lawful prey."
British Philosopher ~ 1819-1900

"Greg is an absolute artist and left us with a beautiful water feature that brings my family and friends together to enjoy on frequent occasions"
The Holmes Family
"I met with Greg Purkey today to discuss replacement of my above-ground pond filter. He was so pleasant and professional and to my surprise, said that I didn't need a new one. He could have easily pulled the wool over my eyes and told me that he could give me a new "whisper quiet" one. As honest as he was, he told me that they all have about the same level of sound. He has restored my faith in humanity. It is wonderful to meet someone so ethical.
