3 Ways to Complete Your Landscape with Water

There is no better way to send your landscape to the next level then by adding water! Having the sight and sound of moving water adds an experience to your yard that cannot be replicated by anything else. Check out our list below to find three best ways to transform your landscape into your very own private paradise.

Add Some Splash!

Bubbling Boulder

The simplest way to create a relaxing paradise in your yard is by adding a fountain. Fountains can be large and used as focal point in your landscape or can fit in a small space and be used as an accent element.

A very unique “vortex” fountain

You can create a fountainscape using almost anything! Prefabricated fountain pieces can be purchased or you can have it custom designed and built made from your favorite boulder, container or anything that has the ability to hold water. Your imagination is the limit!

Cascading Falls

The best part of a water garden is often the waterfalls. With the addition of a pondless waterfall you get the moving water and the perfect noise to create a relaxing low maintenance atmosphere without having to leave your home!

A pondless waterfall is a stream or waterfall that disappears into a bed of gravel, instead of falling into a body of water like a pond.

All of the best vacation destinations have one thing in common, water, so why not bring the water to your home and have a staycation!


Ecosystem ponds include a natural balance of fish, plants, aeration, filtration, and rocks and gravel. All components interact naturally with each other helping to create and maintain a sustainable, low-maintenance pond. Each pond is unique in its design and creation, whether large or small. No matter what size yard you have, small or large, nothing completes your landscape better than water!
