Add Serenity and Style to Your Landscape with a Custom Water Feature
Graceful ponds, babbling waterfalls, and dancing fountains infuse any outdoor space with a relaxing ambience. Warner’s Outdoor Solutions has been designing and building stunning custom water features for Twin Cities homeowners and businesses since the 1990s, using quality materials constructed to last.
Benefits of Water Features
Strategically designed water elements enhance aesthetics while providing soothing sights and sounds. The right water feature offers:
- Tranquility and Relaxation – The peaceful sights and sounds of flowing water provide a calming, Zen-like ambiance. The serene environment de-stresses the senses.
- Masks Background Noise – Splashing water creates pleasant white noise that masks unattractive sounds like traffic. The serene sounds promote privacy and seclusion.
- Attracts Birds and Wildlife – Flowing water helps attract songbirds, butterflies and other desirable backyard visitors to nurture nature. Property feels alive yet serene.
- Adds Aesthetic Appeal – Water elements like ponds and waterfalls make stunning focal points. The natural beauty enhances overall landscape design.
- Increases Home Value – Water features boost property worth and appeal to buyers. Quality materials and workmanship indicate pride of ownership.
Types of Water Features
We create custom water features to meet your unique vision and needs.
- Ponds – Ponds range from placid reflecting pools to large ecosystems with aquatic plants and fish. Small ornamental ponds provide serene ambience, while larger ponds attract more wildlife. Ponds require filtration and routine maintenance but provide a beautiful aquatic space.
- Fountains – The dancing, arched streams of water from freestanding or wall-mounted fountains provide elegance. The soothing sound of fountains masks background noise. Fountains work in large open spaces or smaller courtyards. They provide beauty without the maintenance of ponds.
- Waterfalls – Water gently cascading down natural stone or concrete facades makes a soothing statement. The sights and gentle sounds create a relaxing oasis. Waterfalls range from small backyard accents to large landscape centerpieces with pools below.
- Rainwater Collection – Collecting, filtering, and reusing rain promotes sustainability. Options like rain chains, barrels, and cisterns provide functional beauty. Rainwater features fit perfectly in gardens, contemporary landscapes, and eco-friendly settings.
Water Feature Design Considerations
We focus on key details to construct the perfect water feature for your home or business:
- Placement of the water fountain, pond or other water feature – Location impacts ambiance. Feng shui principles help site water elements for optimal energy flow and enjoyment.
- Water feature size – Scaled properly, even small water features make a dramatic statement. We ensure seamless integration within the existing landscape.
- Lighting your water feature – Subtle lighting casts water elements in a moonlit glow for nighttime allure. Well-placed lighting enhances the ambience.
- Plants to enhance the fountain or pool – Strategic plantings soften edges, provide shade if needed, and tie in the surroundings for a cohesive look.
- Fishponds – For pond owners desiring aquatic life, we provide guidance on ideal fish species and habitat creation tailored to your climate.
- Plumbing needs to supply your water feature – Proper water flow, drainage, filtration, and winterization protect feature health. We design robust plumbing systems for reliability.
- Water feature maintenance – Regular upkeep preserves your water feature’s beauty and function. We provide customized maintenance plans to simplify ownership. We can also help you select a water feature that meets your needs, whether it’s something you’re caring for or you incorporate into your Warner’s Landscaping service.
