Water Feature Styles

Rock Waterfall or Stream

If you want to create a perfect relaxing getaway right in your backyard, a natural stone water feature may be just what you are looking for. You’ll hear the soothing sounds of water as it trickles through the river rocks. Install comfortable outdoor furniture or a hammock near your water feature as your special place for complete relaxation.

Rock water features are also great as focal points for landscapes. For both front and backyards, a rock water feature will provide the ambiance and feel of a natural stream running through your yard.

Paver Waterfall

Using pavers to create a custom water feature has a more modern and structured feel. Match the paver design and color-scheme with your paver patio and seat walls to give your landscape a complete and consistent design.

There are many ways we can create a paver water feature, so let our designers help bring your vision to life.

Bubbling Rocks and Boulders

As a focal point or relaxing addition to your landscape, bubbling rocks are as unique as you are. Choose your favorite stones from vertical columns and stacked flat stones to concrete shapes. Match your bubbling water feature to your overall landscape style, whether it be rustic or modern.

Water and Fire

Becoming more common, fire features that are part of water features offer luxurious appeal for any landscape. Some have water flowing over the edges with flames in the middle. Others include waterfall features with flames at the bottom. They are extremely beautiful when added to an outdoor living space, poolside, or near a seating area.

Gabions with Scupper Water Features

For a rustic, yet sophisticated water feature, scupper water features can be installed to gabion walls with river rock. These water features are a creative alternative to traditional water features and are a beautiful and unique backdrop in any landscape.  Varying the type of rock used in the gabion can take this look from farmhouse to modern.

Pond Water Features

From small to large, ponds can be integrated into the landscape as a serene oasis or place to raise koi. You may even want to include a natural rock waterfall to your pond for added ambiance. When adding a pond, think about your backyard space and where you would like it located. You could place it near a dining area for relaxing dinner parties.

Landscape Lighting for Water Features

Lighting can enhance a backyard atmosphere to promote relaxation or allow parties to go into the night. There are two excellent ways you can add lighting to water features.


Downlights can help add a luminous feel to a water feature. You might place lights on tall objects that direct soft light down on a water feature or pool. This mimics moonlight and provides an enduring and relaxing atmosphere for entertaining.

Underwater Lights

Underwater aquatic lighting is a great way to light up a pool or pond. You can add warmth and inviting lights to emphasize water features unique accents. You may also try adding colors that provide a whimsical effect for pool parties.
