Finding the water feature that creates the ambiance you’re looking for

Choosing a water feature for your yard or home is an exciting time – there are endless possibilities, each imparting a different feel and style to its surroundings.

When considering a water feature, the first thing to think about is the style and mood you want to create with the water feature. Are your tastes contemporary and modern, or do you want to create a rustic, natural feel? Next, you need to consider the space your water feature will occupy – how much or how little space you want it to take up.

Finally, read about the variety of water features below to see which would be the best fit for your yard or home.

Water Feature Types

Ponds & Water Gardens:

Ponds create a natural setting in a yard and can fit into both small or large yard spaces. Ponds can be natural, blending into the outdoor space, or contemporary, adding a modern, classy feel.

These water features can be used for a wide variety of purposes:

Swimming: Kids will love inviting their friends over and your dogs will be in heaven!

Water Garden: Carefully chosen plants will flourish and provide colors and textures that enhance the beauty of the area.

Attracting Nature: Sit in your house or yard and enjoy all the animals and birds that frequent your pond.

Pondless Waterfalls:

Enjoy the soothing sound and visual beauty of a waterfall without the maintenance of a pond! These waterfalls disappear into the ground at the bottom of the waterfall and can be turned on and off with the flick of a switch.

Wall Waterfalls:

A great way to add the sound and visual beauty of a waterfall without taking up much extra yard space, waterfalls can be built into existing retaining walls or walls custom designed for your space.


Fountains can make a stunning centerpiece of any area or can be tucked into nooks and crannies to add beauty and sound.

We can make a water fountain out of anything you would like – some more popular options include:

  • Bubbling Rock Fountains
  • Column Fountains
  • Vase or Pot Fountains
  • Tiered Fountains
  • Disappearing Fountains
  • Tree Stump Fountains
  • Japanese Fountains
  • Birdbath Fountains
  • Solar Powered


A stream not only adds visual beauty but also adds the soothing sound of trickling water to your outdoor space. Steams can be small and contained to smaller areas, or can wind through large properties defining different areas of the yard. Using natural rock and framing the stream with plants and trees help the stream blend seamlessly into your outdoor space and create a natural, calming environment.
