AquaReale was founded by Matthew and Laura Reale. They first started Reale Landscape and Design in 1999, the year they got married. They changed the name and direction of the company in 2010 to AquaReale. The new name reflected the emphasis on all things water.

Laura and Matt live with their two kids and three cats in Jenkintown, PA. They enjoy their pond and pondless water feature, which their son likes to use as a carĀ  wash for his toy cars.
