Adding a water feature to your landscape in Calgary can increase its appeal significantly. It can be as simple as a small reflecting pool or intricate as a waterfall with a fountain. We at Project Landscape offer a variety of options. Knowing the diffrent water feature categories makes the choosing process much easier:
There are a number of different pond options, however the most basic types of them are ornamental ponds, fish ponds and natural water gardens. Each of them can be of any depth, size or shape.
- Reflecting Pools
These are typically designed to be decorative features in gardens or as a central feature in your Calgary landscape. They are formal with geometric shapes and include a walking path along the edges. To add to their artistic beauty they are usually located in decorative landscapes that reflect on the surface of the water.
- Ornamental Pools
These are usually located near a patio or a deck and are designed around a decorative piece like a statue, a cascading fountain or a bell fountain.
- Water Gardens
Water gardens include living features like aquatic plant life that have vibrant colors. The plants within the pool and outside of it create a natural landscape setting.
- Koi Ponds
Fish can be added to any water feature but a few life-sustaining criteria have to be set in place. Koi and goldfish are the most common favorites. They add color to the pond and create a very alive atmosphere in your landscaping Calgary.
There are limitless varieties of shapes and sizes when it comes to adding fountains to your landscape. The sound of the cascading water itself makes the setting very natural and calm.
Like fountains, waterfalls too add sound and motion to the outdoor areas. They are typically created with stone slabs or boulders and can become the focal point of a garden.
Streams are a great to your landscaping Calgary. They can wind through the landscape and you can have stone paths running alongside them. The act as natural filters and are designed to flow out of waterfalls or cascade into a pond to help sustain the ecosystem of the feature.
