Water Features Add Beauty to Your Landscape

Posted by San Diego Landscaper on Saturday, 18 September , 2021

There is very little that can rival the right water feature for beauty and landscape enhancement.  There is something about the trickle of a fountain or the joyful rush of a waterfall that is fundamentally soothing.  Adding a water feature to your landscape not only adds aesthetic beauty but gives you the chance to express your individual creativity with your choice.

What Types of Water Features Are Available for My Yard?

There are endless possibilities when it comes to designing and building a water feature for your yard.  Some of the more popular choices include:

  • If you already have a pool, adding a waterfall makes good sense.  The pool benefits from the additional circulation of water, and you and your family have a ready-made fun feature to add to your pool enjoyment.  Waterfalls can be built small to simply add sound and sight, or large to feature rock outcroppings and plantings.
  • Pondless waterfalls. If you do not have a pool, a pondless waterfall may be a good option for you.  These types of waterfalls recycle water so that a constant source of new water is not necessary.  These pondless waterfalls are easy to add to almost any landscape, needing only the space and an initial source of water to get started.
  • Koi ponds and water gardens. Koi ponds and water gardens are soothing and relaxing features that let you truly enjoy your outdoor space.  While koi require maintenance, a water garden can be designed that does not incorporate fish if that is your preference.
  • Fire features with water. One of the hottest design trends in water features today is combining them with fire features.  Waterfall walls that appear to be emptying into a fire pit make a huge backyard statement and create a beautiful environment for your family or guests.
  • Self-contained patio water features. Even if you have very little room, you can still enjoy the beauty of water.  A self-contained patio water garden provides you with the beauty and soothing sounds of water in a small container.  Adding the perfect plantings will make this feature something you want to visit again and again.

Best of all, many of today’s water features are designed with water conservation in mind.  As water becomes a more precious commodity, it is important that you think about how you will provide water to your water features.  With a water-saving device, this choice becomes much simpler.  Many new water features recycle water over and over, meaning that you must provide less fresh water.  This is healthier for the environment and costs you less money.

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

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
