Adding Fire and Water Features To Your Landscape

Posted by San Diego Landscaper on Wednesday, 25 May , 2022

One of the quickest ways to add beauty and function to your landscape is by adding a fire or water feature.  These additions instantly add value to your home, often resulting in higher resale values.  However, their true benefit is in the enjoyment they offer to your family and friends.  With the addition of a fire or water feature–or both–you will want to spend more time outside enjoying your yard, no matter what the season!

Choosing From Fire and Water Feature Options

Of course, like any important landscaping decision, you want to make a wise investment, and that starts with choosing the right fire or water feature for your needs.  Here are a few key points to consider as you think about incorporating a fire or water feature into your landscape plan:

  • Consider your space. Not all features are suitable for all spaces.  If you have a very small patio, for example, you do not want to overwhelm it with a giant water/fire combination feature.  On the other hand, a cozy deck or patio is just right for a small fire table or a bubbling mini-waterfall.  A landscape designer can help you decide what works for your particular needs and how to incorporate the features you want into your existing landscape plan.
  • Think about transitions. While adding a full-size swimming pool may give you lots of daytime enjoyment, not all times of the day are conducive to swimming.  Even though San Diego has mild weather year-round, some months are cooler than others, particularly at night.  You might get more enjoyment out of a fire feature in the wintertime, so think about adding things that will expand the number of hours you can spend outdoors instead of focusing on a single feature.
  • Choose what you will use. Before you invest in a water or fire feature, you should think about the way your family actually uses your outdoor spaces.  Do you prefer to sit outside in the evenings while enjoying the crackle of a fire, or do you want quiet daytime solitude with the peaceful trickle of a fountain in the background?  Do you use different areas of your yard at different times of the day or year?  Do you like to entertain, and if so, would lighted water features or a fire table enhance your entertainment endeavors?  These questions can help you determine not only where to place your new fire or water features but how you can utilize them for the most enjoyment.

Juniper Landscape Company was on-time,... Read More

    I have a side strip of yard which is on the street. The original landscaping was VERY high maintenance and not attractive. I was always out there cleaning up the leaf litter or be fined by the HOA. I hired Juniper Landscape Company. They came out and actually listened to what I wanted. They... Read More

    Juniper Landscape Company has been fantastic. Before them, we ran through three or four other lawn and landscape maintenance companies who did spotty and sometimes outright poor work, were not always reliable and who ended up creating problems for us in a variety of ways. That experience led us to subscribe to Angie's List... Read More
