A custom water feature can remarkably enhance your landscape design, providing a refreshing look to your outdoor space. A properly designed custom pond or fountain can bring an element of serenity to your surroundings that are hard to match with any other landscaping feature.
There are many styles of water features to choose from, so it is crucial to have an idea of what’s important to you before making a decision. For example, if you’re looking for an option that has minimal upkeep, a fountain or water wall may be the choice for you. If you’re looking for something more expansive that will be a signature feature for your home, a pond or poodles waterfall is the direction for you.
The following guide will help you through the planning and installation of a new pond:
You need to position it carefully from where you will have great views for most of the time. Make sure your pond receives around 5 to 6 hours of sunlight for the plants and water conditions to stay at their best. If you want to install it in a partially shaded area, bear in mind that falling leaves and other debris may increase maintenance time and cost.
Building a custom pond is not a DIY project. A miscalculation with size and shape can completely kill the look of your garden. The best way to save some time and money, as well as obtaining the right result would be to consider hiring professionals offering pond installation services in your area.
There are two classifications of pond sizes: informal pond or large pond.
Informal ponds are free-flowing shapes and can be built to any size constraints the yard might have. They are relatively smaller than larger ponds and don’t require as much upkeep.
Larger ponds are deeper and more expansive. They have the necessary requirements for Koi fish and can include a small to large waterfall. Larger ponds can also include a small bridge or stepping stones for functionality and style.
While you are sitting on your deck with your back to the sun, reading the paper on Sunday morning, and enjoying a cup of coffee, you still should enjoy your pool and its surroundings.
The key is to have some kind of water feature in every outdoor swimming pool living area.
Are you looking for something sophisticated or mysterious… the perfect place for upscale entertaining? Or maybe you would like to create a private tropical resort where your troubles melt away with the sound of cascading water?

Here are five fabulous additions for your pool area that will make your backyard the gem of the neighborhood.
Lighting is one of the easiest ways to dress up your pool for nighttime swimming. LED lights and fiber optics are two of the most popular options in pool lighting today.
The biggest advantage to these lighting choices is that you can bring a rainbow of color for your swimming experience. Choose colors for the seasons, or use a palette to coordinate with the exterior of your home.
Nothing will add ambiance and class to your pool area than an array of colored lights outside and underwater.
Water features like fountains and waterfalls add a twofold benefit to your swimming pool. First, they are aesthetically pleasing and second, the sound of running water is a soothing sound that promotes relaxation. Keep in mind that water features will require a separate pump to run, which will up your electric bill a bit. Choose water features that can be turned off and on as you want to use them to save on the energy usage.
