Water features add beauty

Water Features are a great way to add beauty and tranquility in your yard.

A small stream flows into a reflecting pool in beautiful red stone, giving serenity to this back yard.

A water feature adds beauty and tranquility to a home’s yard. For this property, we consulted with the owner and selected a relatively quiet area that needed some enhancement. A reddish stone was selected as the foundation of a small waterfall and reflecting pool. The stone was arranged to give a natural appearance to this part of the yard. The water flow adds a soft sound that may be heard throughout the yard during quiet moments. So, as the water feature enlivens this corner, it also adds a nice new dimension to the whole landscape around the home.

Scroll down to see a couple more images of this beautiful feature.

You may want to take a look at your property and think about where a water feature might look good. Ask yourself, where are the less used parts of the yard that need a little attention? How should these areas contribute to the landscape as a whole? Water features work best when integrated into the whole landscape of your property.

Other factors to consider are the natural conditions and slope of your property. A water feature must be carefully placed such that it enhances the natural surroundings and takes advantage of an area’s hydrology. A well built water feature can even enhance the ecology of a yard, improving water management while providing habitat for small birds.

Our team at Flash-N-Reds can help you think about all this. We’ve advised many property owners and have built many beautiful and functional water features.
