“I’m inspired daily by our clients, who enjoy their water features and lighting so much they regularly refer their friends and family members to us.”

For as long as he can remember, Jose Manuel Da Silva Lobo has been inspired by his inner silence to create water features within fountains. At just 16, he took his love of water features and combined it with his hobby of doing lavish Christmas lights and decorations, melding it all into a small business that quickly grew. His projects included decorating the biggest and most beautiful trees across his home island of Curaçao as well as residential houses and commercial buildings. Today, as CEO & GM of Universal Seven Elements Global, he provides customers in Miami-Dade, Broward and Monroe Counties with gorgeous and relaxing pond designs, lake aeration systems, landscape LED lighting, as well as rental services and equipment for parties and events. “I love all aspects of design — especially working with my clients and my team to create something magical with water, lights and imagination,” he says. “We work with only the best products, focus on the needs of our customers, their values and budgets, and always conduct our business with integrity and fairness.” Even further, he speaks 5 languages and is now a proud American citizen. His hobbies include art/painting, transcendental meditation, working with nature conservation programs, traveling, photography, tennis, scuba diving…and designing dream outdoor spaces!;
