Ponds, Waterfalls and Outdoor Fountains
Water features for landscapes and patios.
There is nothing more relaxing than walking by a mountain stream and hearing the gurgling rush of water as it dances over and around the rocks. Perhaps you enjoy sitting beside a pond or lake and watching the water creatures swim around and find tidbits of food. Or maybe you are captivated by raindrops breaking the surface of a still pond.
Water is fascinating. It is always changing, yet it provides the serenity of paradise on earth. Our greatest joy is to bring that paradise to your own yard and let you enjoy the creation just as much as we do!
Types of Water Features
Koi Ponds & Water Gardens
Koi Ponds, also called “water gardens,” are one of the most rewarding features you can add to a backyard or patio. You no longer have to drive hours to find a relaxing spot to unwind. You can have one in your backyard! By adding the koi pond, you will find yourself relaxing and de-stressing from the busyness of life as you sit back, sip on something cool and refreshing, and watch your fish mosey around the pond.
The Aquascape Water Gardens we install are self-sustaining eco-systems that require little maintenance, and provide an opportunity to have koi fish as pets, without the regular upkeep of an indoor aquarium. Pond plants add to the natural look by enhancing the rocks, by adding bursts of color with water lilies and other flowering plants, and by creating a garden different from the typical roses and petunias in landscaping.
Pondless Waterfalls & Streams
Without a doubt, one of the unique beauties of the Rocky Mountains is the mountain streams gurgling around small rocks and rushing over the larger boulders. We take our designs and inspiration from nature, bringing the feel of the Rocky Mountains to your own yard. A pondless waterfall is the most beautiful and most sought-after landscape water feature. If space is limited, then this is the perfect option for you. These Pondless Waterfalls are available in a variety of sizes and configurations — anything from a babbling brook to a rushing rapid with a dramatic drop.
Waterfalls are extremely low maintenance, energy efficient, and attract a variety of wildlife. They are great options for families with children who love exploring nature and playing with water. And if you work from home or stay at home, be sure to locate your waterfall near a window so you can hear the melodious sounds of your own Rocky Mountain stream all summer long.
Outdoor Fountains & Patio Ponds
Perhaps you don’t have space for a pond or waterfall in your yard, but you would still like a water feature. Then these options are for you. We use Aquascape outdoor fountains and patio ponds to enhance your yard or patio.
What is an outdoor fountain? It can be a bubbling urn, spillway bowls, fire/water bowls, or more. They can be added to any space in your yard, making them ideal if you are wanting a smaller, low-maintenance water feature. You will find delightful new sounds as bees, butterflies, and birds enjoy the refreshment your fountain brings to the garden.
A patio pond is just that — a water feature designed for your patio. You can place these small features on tables or in small areas where plants and landscaping won’t grow. It lets you enjoy the sound of running water and the elegance of small aquatic plants right from your patio. You can even add underwater lighting and some small fish like “rosy reds” for added interest and color. Some of our patio ponds can even be brought indoors!
Pond Cleaning, Maintenance and
Water Feature Repair
We make pond cleaning and water feature maintenance easy.
We make pond cleaning and water feature maintenance easy. Everyone loves having a water feature, but no one likes cleaning them or maintaining them. It can be confusing to know what products to use, when there might be an issue, and how to fix and clean it. Specifically with a pond, we recommend regular maintenance to ensure that the ecosystem is in perfect balance and that the fish are living in a healthy environment.
The products we use are different from the harsh chemicals you might find at your local home improvement store. We use Aquascape products that are nature-based and are fish-safe and plant-safe. We believe the best way to replicate nature’s water features is to look at nature. All treatments we use have been designed to imitate nature and maintain a properly balanced ecosystem.
So whether you have a pond with ecosystem or a small patio pond that you need maintenance or cleaning for, our crew is ready to help make your water feature run the way it is supposed to so you can stress less and enjoy more time in your paradise.
