Types of Water Features to Consider Adding to Your Outdoor Living Space

Adding a water feature to your outdoor living space is easy with our landscape contractors, as we work with you every step of the way from design to installation. We will help you choose the best custom water feature for your yard. Types of water features our company can install are:

  • Ponds: Natural ponds are a great way to add a touch of nature to your landscaping. 
  • Koi ponds: With a habitat for koi, you can relax and watch these beautiful fish swim around in your yard.
  • Streams: Ideal for larger areas, a stream of flowing water will cohesively blend your landscaped areas together and provide soothing sounds throughout your yard.
  • Waterfalls: Waterfalls can be incorporated into your landscaping or flow into a pool.
  • Bubblers: These are made from boulders and are perfect for smaller areas such as an entryway. Greet your guests with the sounds of running water.
  • Pondless waterfalls: Pondless waterfalls work well as a standalone feature if you want water near your patio or outdoor kitchen.
  • Water gardens: Water gardens incorporate the surrounding landscape and also predominantly feature plants that grow in water. 
  • Fountains: A fountain can also be standalone or part of your softscaping. You can choose a smaller fountain or a more grandiose option for higher visibility.
  • Water walls: Water walls often flow into your pool or spa, and are usually built with a custom wall using masonry. Consider adding outdoor lighting to this feature for extra emphasis.

Consider combining any of these together to create a more dramatic effect that beautifully complements your outdoor living area.
