Water Features

What is a water feature?

A water feature is any indoor or outdoor decor that incorporates water. From a small tabletop fountain or container water garden to a large commercial lake or retention pond.. and anything in-between. Choose from four basic categories that emerge from this range of options…

FOUNTAINSCAPES are small decorative water features such as tabletop fountains, container water gardens, stand-alone fountains, bubbling urns, spitters, and fountains that incorporate an in-ground reservoir.

PONDLESS WATERFALLS are simply a recirculating waterfall and/or stream without the presence of a pond. You can enjoy the sight and sound of running water without the maintenance of a pond.

ECOSYSTEM PONDS are small or large ponds that include a balance of aeration, filtration, plants, fish, rock and gravel. All components must be present in order to be considered an ecosystem since all components interact to keep the pond naturally balanced, thereby minimizing maintenance.

ADVANCED PONDS can take the form of a Pondless Waterfall or ecosystem Pond. These large, water features are often found in commercial applications such as an office complex, a residential subdivision, shopping center, and more. A few water-loving homeowners have advanced ponds installed on their property where space and budget allow.
