Water features have the unique ability to add a whole new dimension to your yard. There are few other additions that can have the same dramatic effect whether it’s a kettle garden, disappearing fountain, koi pond or waterfall.
Besides the overall aesthetic benefits, well placed water features provide a soothing and tranquil atmosphere where the entire family can relax and enjoy the therapeutic effects of flowing water. It also serves as an excellent conversation for friends and neighbors!
We Help You Choose A Water Feature
Once you have decided that you want to explore the possibility of a water feature then you need to be educated on the kinds available to your budget and climate zone.
The climate zone of Houston is categorized as humid subtropical, meaning we have really hot summers and somewhat mild winters. That needs to be taken into account because what works in one area might not be a good idea for this particular one.
You also need to be educated about the maintenance that will be required for the particular option you want. Koi ponds, for instance, require that you constantly monitor the temperature and filtration to keep your fish alive!
What Materials and Specifications Do You Want
Once you decided on the exact water feature you want then it’s time to go over the materials that will be used to construct it. The options are endless. For instance, a water fountain can be constructed out of brick, concrete, natural stone, (stone) veneer, (precast) stone or other masonry materials.
Each one has its own pros and cons to consider, notwithstanding price. Many homeowners have grand ideas, and it is out job to make those ideas a reality, however, things like available space, homeowner association rules and your budget requirements will need to be taken into account.
The decision will ultimately be yours and it is our job from the start point to recommend the best options based on your current situation.
Once we know what you are looking for then we go to work designing your project. We make professional drawings for you to visualize exactly what the project will look like once we have completed it.
