Water is the most basic element of life, landscape water features have design qualities that few other features in the garden possess.

A water feature can be a striking focal point for your front or backyard landscaping. Location is the first decision and will be affected by available space, proximity to utilities, prevailing winds, splash patterns, wildlife, etc. The design can be anything from modern to traditional and if desired can be incorporated into your pool design. Because water is the most basic element of life, landscape water features have design qualities that hardly any other features in the garden possess. Apart from being aesthetically pleasing, fountains, ponds and streams evoke an emotional response as well.

Cascading Water Falls

If you have ever seen a landscape designed waterfall you’re well aware how beautiful and linked to nature it can make a home feel. With rocks and stones getting used to create a completely natural feel and look, you can really bring together how you’re back yard is perceived. From the beauty towards the soothing sound flowing water makes, it’s an excellent option to consider.

Garden Ponds

A garden pond is appealing in any outdoor setting. It may comprise a complete water ecosystem, including pond fish and water plants, such as water lilies. The most
common water garden pond contains some goldfish or koi fish, a few water plants and a water circulation system to keep the water flowing and oxygenated.

Pool-Side Sprinklers and Landscaping

Having a pool is a superb addition during the summer months, however it can get incredibly hot and then any plants or flowers around can dry up or get burned. Also, the patio and stone around your pool may become incredibly hot and uncomfortable. Here a pool-side watering is a great addition to not only keep plants hydrated as well as your pool area cooled off, but also could be great fun for your kids to play in when enjoying your pool.

Fountain

Often located near a deck or patio, outdoor fountains have been popular water features since the time of the ancient Greeks and Romans because of the elegance and sophistication they provide. Water fountains may come in various forms, from bubbling boulders to a spouting statue or multi-tiered garden fountains.
