Landscape Water Features

Ornamental Offerings The large French limestone fountain offers a dramatic touch to balance the clean lines of the pool. The running water offers a peaceful sound, and pumps are used to re-circulate the water. Water Sculpture The soft sound of water falling from this single fountain masks other unwanted noise. This is placed in a backyard where the sun shines in the midday. Cool Offerings The sun beats down for most of the day in this backyard, and this trio of fountains gives the homeowners a bit of a reprieve from the intense heat. Bubbling Boulder A granite rock fountain bubbles just enough to create movement in this landscaped garden. The soft-blue grape hyacinths and white starflowers add contrast to the boulder and red bricks. Garden Gazebo A multilevel stream washes down from the gazebo, appearing as a miniature lock for toy boats. The gazebo blends into the background of the landscape using colors from nature. The brick that edges the water feature is repeated at the base of the gazebo. Great for Small and Large Gardens The Aquafires Stainless Steel Tier Five Fountain from Wayfair fits in gardens of all sizes. The effect of the water flowing from cup to cup and then disappearing is pleasing to watch. Making an Entrance During the Day Visitors often let out an impressive sigh of desire when they encounter the front yard of this Morristown, N.J., mansion. Land Identity, LLC, incorporated a seven-foot-in-diameter, formal-style fountain surrounded by flowering annuals and inlay brick. Click to the next slide to see how the fountain looks at night. Making an Entrance at Night The five illuminated jets make the fountain come alive at night. This was a collaborative effort involving Land Identity as the landscape architect; Crystal Pool & Spa as the pool contractor; and Curb Appeal Design, which handled the stonework around the fountain and throughout the garden as well as lighting and landscaping. Dramatic Nights and Lights The natural colors of the night sky combined with colored lighting strategically placed along the footbridges and walkways add flair to this backyard water garden. Click through to the next slide to see this backyard in daylight. Design by Atlantis Water Water Flows Along the Walkways The garden consists of several varieties of marginal aquatic plants, both tropical and hardy. The tropical plants help provide vibrancy and variety. Maintenance simply requires removing dead foliage so it doesn’t fall into the ponds. Design by Atlantis Water Above-Ground Water Garden Designer Tiffany Angeles created this garden with three fountains in her backyard. Using no tools, Angeles stacked 10″ x 10″ flat bricks, which she purchased from a home improvement store, above ground for a shallow pond and ordered a loose liner, which she cut to fit the pond. She held the liner down with more bricks. Like most ponds, this pond needs to be cleaned about once every three months. Cleaning involves removing algae from the pumps and using a net to scoop debris from the bottom of the pond. Nature’s Elements This boulder with a bamboo spigot was installed in a low-water garden in California. This design brings sound and a moving element to the garden. Re-circulating features are great because they are low in cost and don’t waste money. Also, with moving water, you don’t have to worry about mosquitoes. Looks Like It’s Always Been There This fountain is deceptive because it looks like it was custom-designed for this Spanish Mediterranean home, and has been part of the yard for years. It’s actually a prefabricated modular unit that was installed in a brightly colored courtyard. The homeowner wanted the sound of water in the yard, but not the expense of a custom fountain. Falling Water Lazar Landscape created this modern waterfall to bring a sculptural element into the garden. It can be viewed from the main level of the house, which is a flight above the garden. Reflections and Play This large water garden is on a down slope from the house. It has a reflecting pond that pulls your eye into the garden from the upper decks of the home. Lazar Landscape designed the runnel so it has the sounds of water without disturbing the calm, flat reflecting pond. Seat walls divide the two spaces. As an unexpected side benefit, the homeowners can dip their feet in the pond with their grandchildren on hot summer days. Garden Art Powered by the sun, place the Sutherland Solar Waterfall with Planter from Wayfair in a sunny spot and relax to the comforting sight and sound of your very own waterfall.

Ambiance and Reflection This pond adds tranquility, reflection and ambiance to its landscape. A partially above-ground water feature, it was created with stone-and-mortar walls, then finished with a butyl liner. Double Duty This stacked-stone water feature functions as an art piece that’s visible from the patio, deck and even indoors. Stacked Vase It looks like a vase, but in reality this stacked-stone work of art is a courtyard patio fountain. Watered Intricacies An intricate water feature wraps the entire back end of this dream house; water spills over a brick wall, encircles the patio, flows underneath the breezeway and empties into a fish pond. A raised pond at the head of the feature provides the drop needed for water to flow well and create more waterfall sound. The feature uses a careful mix of large boulders, medium rocks and small pebbles for a natural appearance. Selecting extra-large plant material makes the brand-new house and landscape look already well established and will soon provide privacy from the neighbors. Classic Whimsy A classical European-style fountain is paired with whimsical seating in this Keith Anderson-designed landscape.

Asian Garden Design This garden, designed by David Hertz, takes advantage of the natural landscape of Yachats, Oregon, and combines it with the simplicity of Asian garden design. Photo by David Papazian Boulder on Boulder The path in this narrow urban backyard passes the simplest of water features (center) — one boulder resting on another, with copper tubing in between. Light Play The crystal falls of this water feature wall, designed by Morgan Holt and Robin Stockton, sparkle with light, thanks to an underwater light hidden in the basin. Light play can be an important part of any landscape and add a whole new dimension to a yard. Reflections also play off the stacked-glass edge of the stone wall.

Modern Bather In a private woodland glade, a modern “bather” presides over a small pool. Hitting the Low Notes Want an indoor water feature? It’s easy to create a tabletop fountain. Making a Big Splash This combo waterfall and pond is a stunning focal point in the garden. Posted by RMS user simmons7 Prominent Placement The walkway to this home is a “causeway” over a pond. Focal-Point Fountain This eye-catching urn anchors a corner of the yard above a stone wall. Posted by RMSer jbmacf1
