Adding a Water Feature to your Backyard

Adding a Water Feature to your Backyard

Installing a water feature in your yard is an easy way to instantly transform the appearance of your landscape. These popular landscape design features are sought after not only for their looks but for the soothing sounds and atmosphere they create.  A water feature will add personality, style, and diversity to your back garden as well as add an appealing contrast to the desert beauty of Tucson.

Here are 3 water features for you to consider:


Ponds offer a great way to enhance your yard without disrupting the organic look of your property. A free form pond creates a natural space where you can keep fish, plant a garden, or add seating for a relaxing space.  Adding a small fountain or waterfall can be added for ambiance and helps improve water circulation for easier maintenance.



A fountain can be the focal point of your yard or be tucked away into a niche or beside a gardening area. Fountains come in a wide variety of designs, from modern to classical to suit the theme of your current landscape. They may be freestanding or incorporated as part of a patio enclosure to add style and privacy to your outdoor space.



Canals can transport water throughout your yard. They can soften your landscape’s overall design while adhering to the more structured feel.  A canal with flowing water can create the perfect complement to a southwestern-style yard.  You should also consider adding a bridge or waterfall to create a backyard with a classical, garden-like feel.
