Integrating Water Features Into Your Landscaping Design

Published on: October 23, 2013

The creative placement of plants and trees is an important part of a good landscaping design, but the addition of water features can help you to build a truly great landscape. Waterfalls, koi ponds, streams and fountains make your property a more soothing, inviting place and add an additional layer of visual interest. With the integration of water features, your lawn or garden can truly become a relaxing retreat that encourages outdoor living.

For the greatest cosmetic impact, your water features should be integrated into your overall landscape and customized to ensure that they’re a perfect fit with the rest of your design. A custom water feature installation sets your lawn apart from those of your neighbors, creating a design that’s truly unique and impressive. Instead of competing elements, you want a balanced and cohesive design that’s pulled together perfectly.

Designing a custom water feature and installing it will require the attentions of a licensed, experienced landscaping design professional. You need someone who not only knows how to maximize the potential of your lawn with a fountain, stream or artificial waterfall, but also how to implement and install them correctly. After all, a poorly installed water feature will be more of an eyesore than a welcome addition to your landscaping design, and can make the rest of your carefully planned garden seem awkward or imbalanced.

Contact a professional landscaping design contractor with experience in the area of water features to ensure that your new fountain or koi pond is flawlessly built. Discuss the ways that you might integrate those water features into an overall design that complements both your home’s exterior and your family’s lifestyle.
