You'll Treasure the Enchantment of a Water Feature

East Valley homeowners with a water feature in their landscape design rave about the benefits. This feature enhances the natural surroundings, embraces the valley's beautiful blue skies, and brings harmony and balance to the environment. The sound of trickling or cascading water reduces stress and calms the mind.

Placed near a paved patio or pergola with a seating area, its presence becomes a favorite space to relax and unwind. It also makes guests feel at ease when you're entertaining. And if you live near a busy road, train tracks, or noisy neighbors, your water feature will significantly reduce background noise.

Water features are the most artistic and unique elements in landscape design. No two look the same. They are self-contained and crafted in a variety of sizes and styles. We'll partner with you to design flora, lighting, decorative stone, and other accents around the movement of the water. The result is a one-of-a-kind creation!

Turning Pools into Backyard Water Features

Your swimming pool falls into the static water features category. Apart from water movement created by the pump and filter, there is not much activity going on. You can create a stunning dynamic display by installing a waterfall at the side of your pool.

These water outcrops can be designed and built with the same materials of your pool’s surround, to create a seamless and natural addition.

We can also create an outcrop of natural rock for a beautiful scene reminiscent of nature itself. Or design a concrete outcrop accented with plants and rocks.

Preferred Water Feature Styles in Southeast Phoenix

Water features fall into two types - static or dynamic. Static water features don’t engage in moving water. Ornamental fishponds are an example in which the moving water is slow and unseen. Dynamic outdoor fountains direct water into the air, down a decorative wall, or into another vessel.

Your choice of material (like paver stone or decorative concrete) will depend on such factors as the style of your hardscape landscaping, your budget, and whether your water feature will be a centerpiece in your yard or a subtle addition. Lovely during the daytime, installing LED lights around the fountain also makes it alluring at night.

Outdoor Fountains with Pools
Water cascades downwards, filling a basin beneath. A contemporary design uses clean lines and geometric shapes. A decorative fountain includes more accents and can also be shaped to look like an animal, person, or specific shape.

Wall Fountains
Ideal for smaller yards, this style is installed against an existing wall to save valuable space and still provide all the benefits of traditional backyard water features.

Rock Waterfalls
Crafted river rocks or a similar rocky surface, water tumbles into the reservoir and then gets pumped back to the top.

Tiered Fountains
Tiered fountains contain two or more bowls. The water fills the smaller basins at the top and overflows into larger basins at the bottom where it is pumped back to the top again.

Imagine Your Dream Outdoor Living Space

Close your eyes and imagine the comforting sounds of a babbling creek. Is it moving fast or slow? Do you enjoy watching the movement of the water or is the background melody what draws you? Now think about the appearance of your water feature. Do you prefer a rustic, natural look or sleek, elegant qualities?
