Asheville Landscaping: Water Feature Fun!

I love building ponds and waterfalls. I enjoy every part of creating water features from design to finish. 

Today I wanted to post about adding fun design features to water features. There are many ways to make your pond, stream or waterfall beautiful & functional.

A few things I like to put into water features are:

‘Old World’ Stone Bridge over Stream

Bridges, statuary, aquatic lighting, decks and sometimes some wood, like a dry log you might have found in the mountains around Asheville.

A bridge is always a great water feature if it works in layout for your yard or garden. We have used stone, wood and metal to breach a gurgling stream or tranquil pond. 

 

Another great landscaping water feature is a statue that is placed correctly. This is a simple way to add a lot character to your landscape.

Remember to try and carry a theme when you are choosing a statue. In the picture below, we chose a small stone Pagoda to accent the waterfall. This was in keeping with the Japanese garden we were creating.

                                                                                       

                                                                          

Hillside Pond with ‘Wine Deck’

 Another fun landscaping idea to add to your water feature is a deck. It gives a great place for relaxing by a waterfall or watching the fish frolic in the pond. I like the look and feel of adding different elements to the garden. Mixing wood, stone, water, and earth together make a feature or garden that is both functional and artistic.     

                                  

  Don’t forget the aquatic and landscape lighting when planning your water feature. Aquatic lighting is always one of my favorite parts of the job. I like to get creative and put lights in little nooks and under little streams in the falls.   LED lights work great for pond and waterfall lighting because they are more energy efficient and they last much longer than halogen bulbs. 

More fun landscaping water features ideas soon to come!!

Paradise found!

Do you ever dream of creating a piece of paradise in your yard?

Do you ever wish you could vacation in your own garden?

Asheville Landscaping I know, I’m pushing the limits a little here! But really, what if you could pick and choose the the most relaxing and enjoyable aspects of your dream vacation and create that in your own yard?! 
A stretch maybe, but think about it, what’s more relaxing then the comforts of your own home? 

What if you came home each day from work to a vacation in your own backyard?
No travel stresses, no jet lag, just the sound of a soothing waterfall as you sip tea on your own patio. 

As the sun sets, the landscape lighting comes on and sets a relaxing twilight tone, reflecting on the shimmering water of a peaceful koi pond and highlighting the beautiful flowers in the landscape you helped design. 

Imagine the possibilities! 
Maybe I’m a dreamer, but I’m not ashamed! 

I love seeing the look on our clients faces when we complete a custom mini-paradise in their yard. 


We love what we do! And we enjoy working with our clients to create dream gardens and backyard vacation spaces. 

Give us a call anytime to talk about your yard or garden space.
