Welcoming water features in your lifestyle
What soothes like the sound of flowing waters? Here are some basics:
Natural streams are abundant in parts of the islands, of course, but they pose challenges, too: times of low-flow or flooding, pollution from upstream (sadly), even changing course without regard for gardens and houses. A custom water feature crafted for reliability and to simplify maintenance does not take too much tending and can be designed to provide the features you want and to suit its location well.
A man-made water feature recirculates its water. A container or liner prevents the water from seeping away. A pump keeps things flowing and, often, some sort of filtration helps keep the water quality good. Some use pool-type chemicals, some don’t need them; some allow water plants and fish, others don’t. Discuss your wishes, the options and tradeoffs with your designer/contractor, using their expertise to help guide your choices. And have this talk before drawing up your plans!
We can work with your architect, your landscape designer… or your rough sketch on a cafe napkin. Or ask our design and construction team to put together a proposal for your project. We’ll be happy to work with you to achieve the best result possible.
