Water Feature Inspirations
Water attracts your senses. Visually you see the moving water and you are drawn to gaze closer. As you approach a water feature you are filled with the tranquil sounds of the moving water and the wonderful aroma of flowers. When you have family & friends over, guess where they’re inevitably going to gravitate and congregate? Moving water is mesmerizing and peaceful to look at. Feels good, doesn’t it?
Put down the cell phone, walk away from the television, and immerse yourself into the wonderful world of water features. The water feature experience is comforting and soothing. It transforms your senses and calms your world. Grab your favorite drink and retire to the patio and soak in the peacefulness of your water feature. It’s the Zen thing to do!

Yes! As long as you have a water garden or pond. Some of the other water features can support plant life but not fish. Adding fish to your pond will have a positive effect on the ecosystem and creates a new & exciting element to your feature.
You usually will want to base this on your available space and budget. We always tell people to build as large as they can afford but not so large that it looks out of place in your landscape. This honestly isn’t a line used to raise the sales price as high as possible. Fact is, most people build their water feature 3 times during its lifetime and the reason is they want it bigger. Build your dream water feature the first time.
Most water features can be installed in one day or less with minimal or no damage to your lawn. Some larger water features make take two or three days. Consult with your local Authorized PondBuilder Contractor for specific details on your project.
In some cases yes, but it’s easy and usually just consists of removing the pump.
