Ponds, Waterfalls, Fountains, Streams and Pools
Water features are very versatile and can also be formal or natural and both at the same time. Water features can be fountains, streams, pools, ponds or a combination of elements. Really the only limitations to water features are budget and space. Other than those two items, there are countless possibilities, looks, and functions that water features can provide. In most cases, some type of landscaping will be needed to create the look you want, so a budget for plants and other items you want to include should be considered as well as some type of irrigation for the planting.
Water features are subject to some regular maintenance and that as well should be considered when you are deciding what type of water feature would best suit your lifestyle. As a general rule, the larger the water feature, the more maintenance will be required. Evaporation in a water feature is a consideration, especially during the summer. But, it does not have to be hot for water to evaporate. Water movement, wind and temperature are all contributors to evaporation. Thankfully there are auto-fill devices that can be installed in projects of all sizes as a convenience for you to help relieve some of the required maintenance that goes into a water feature.
"I worked with Dreamscapes Landscaping about 2 months ago and was very pleased with the professionalism and workmanship of the company. They were very helpful in planning the design to fit my needs and requests while letting me be part of the process in picking out plants, mulch, etc., something other landscape companies didn't let me do. The landscaper's work was impeccable. They worked hard and efficiently to get the job done quickly and at a very high standard. To this day they still keep in touch to make sure my needs for my yard are met and that I am satisfied. I have gotten numerous compliments on my yard from my neighbors. I recommend their services all the time to my friends and neighbors and will continue to do so. Thanks again Jacob for my great yard. I have been enjoying my backyard more than I ever have before!" - Markie Gibson
