Over the last few years, The Thompson Family has been planning their summer vacations around the outdoors, stream and waterfall day hikes, and National Parks. In the Fall of 2016, Just Add Water began the backyard transformation of Owner Chris Thompson’s personal backyard. The inspiration of the makeover was to create a space where they could feel as close to water and the wildness they had experienced in their vacations in their own Ankeny Iowa suburban backyard while still enjoying the comforts civilization offered.
