If you are looking for a way to beat the summer heat, look no further than a beautiful water feature. Clear, sparkling water flowing in a gentle or powerful rhythm is the best way possible to bring a breath of fresh air to your yard, even on the hottest days. With a well-designed water feature, you can enjoy the refreshment of sound and sight every day of the year and, at the same time, add curb appeal and even eco-friendly improvements to your home.
While water is certainly at a premium, the right water feature not only conserves the water you use but also helps your overall irrigation plan. With a simple pump, you can recycle water over and over again and even channel it to water your plants after a certain amount of use. You can also collect rainwater to use for this purpose and incorporate it into your irrigation system.
Water features are as varied as any other type of landscape architecture. Some popular examples include:
Water-friendly fountains. Fountains can be designed in any shape, from whimsical and fun to majestic and awesome. Fountains can also be designed with built-in recycling features so that you use the minimum amount of water possible to keep your fountain going. With proper care and treatment, a fountain can last many years. Fountains can be free-standing, built into a wall, or built into a planting area as part of the “natural” landscape.
Waterfall features are becoming popular, especially in areas like San Diego with its beautiful outdoor weather. Many homeowners choose to build a waterfall as part of a pool/spa combination, with the water from the spa flowing into the pool, or as a built-in feature of the pool itself. Other waterfalls may be freestanding and can be paired with a fire pit for a dramatic effect. Waterfalls can be placed almost anywhere with the proper construction and piping, but should always be installed by a professional.
Irrigation options. Some homeowners just want to beautify their landscape irrigation options. Specialty sprinklers, strategically placed ponds, or even a patio-based rain barrel system can help you keep your plants watered as well as add an exciting touch to your landscape. Best of all, you will be doing your part to help curb the overuse of water, one of our greatest resources. With a well-designed watering system and the right planting plan, you can enjoy the versatility of a low-maintenance watering system while doing your part to protect the environment.

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
