Ready to Install a Water Feature? Read This First!
Posted by San Diego Landscaper on Wednesday, 22 March , 2017
If you’ve been wanting a water feature installed in your backyard, this is the perfect time to take action.
In this article, we’ll talk about that crucial first step: identifying the idea location.
Finding the Perfect Place for Water Feature
While there are a few things to consider before breaking ground for your water feature, it’s important to keep in mind that it – when finished – should look as if it naturally belongs there.
If your water feature will require moving water and a pump, you’ll need an area where power can be easily accessed.
Keep in mind the ease in which your feature can be emptied. Most owners will drain their water features at some point, either for the cooler months, maintenance, etc.
If aquatic plants and fish are going to play a major role in your feature, you’ll need to keep their requirements for sunshine in mind.
Be sure to select a spot away from overhead trees or else you’ll be skimming leaves from the water from now on.
It’s crucial that you select a spot with soil that is stable enough to support your water feature.
Guarding Against Erosion
A slight ridge about 3 inches high should give you plenty of protection against everyday erosion.

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
