Water is the driving force of all nature.
- Leonardo da Vinci

Turn your outdoor living area into a backyard oasis with water features such as ponds, fountains, and waterfalls in the Spanish Fort, Daphne, Fairhope, and Point Clear, Alabama area. Alabama is already rich with outstanding views. Enhance those views and create garden focal points by adding ponds, fountains, and waterfalls to your landscaping.

Water invites birds, creates movement and reflection, and adds sound, color, and life to your backyard environment.

Whether your budget is small or large, you can improve your quality of life with waterscaping.

Water features have the ability to:

  • Increase quality time with family: The appeal of water features provide a natural gathering spot for friends and family.
  • Promote stress relief: In this area, we are surrounded by water, so we all know the soothing effect it can have on us, but not everyone can live by the water. If this is the case, bring the benefits of water to your home by adding a water feature in your yard.
  • Add appeal: A water feature in your front yard or at your entryway brings curb appeal and has an inviting effect on visitors.

Types of water features

  • Building a themed water garden in your backyard is a great way to express your style. Some themes include Roman, Oriental, or Western water gardens. Enhance that look by adding plants following the theme of your desire.
  • If you have a small space to work with like a patio or deck, limited budget, or simply want a corner water feature, bubbling urns and vase fountains may be the water feature for you. They provide the calming sound of water and add a focal point to your yard. Urns and fountains come in all shapes and sizes. In some cases, we can even design one for you.
  • Pondless cascading waterfalls give you the sound and visual beauty of a waterfall without the space required or upkeep of having a pond. They are also a nice choice if you have safety concerns. Maintenance is easy. Simply replenish evaporated water every few weeks or have an automatic fill valve installed.
  • Imagine waking each morning to floating water lilies and other aquatic water plants and friendly Goldfish or Koi eager to be fed with an Ecosystem pond. Ecosystem ponds or Koi ponds are simply fun and a pleasure to relax by. Just add water, a few floating plants, and Koi, and you will be amazed. Fun fact—fish can be trained. Just splash the water surface before each feeding and watch as your goldfish and Koi appear from beneath lily pads and floating grasses. This will be the highlight of your children’s or grandchildren’s day.

For even more ambiance, use lighting to showcase your waterscaping. The right night lighting will illuminate your yard and highlight your water feature.
