Outdoor water features add a pleasant aesthetic to any property, whether it’s incorporated into a home’s backyard or on an office’s surrounding landscape. Capital Landscaping offers several different types of water features to choose from including streams, waterfalls, boulder fountains, and ponds. And if you have a different idea, we can make that happen too. Find more outdoor living project ideas here.
Choosing a water feature is often the most difficult part of the process of installing one. With both streams and waterfalls you can design them to empty into a pond or as a standalone piece — the result will be beautiful either way. And in either case, the water will be recycled from the end back to the beginning, so the feature is using the same water, over and over again. It's environmentally friendly and won’t spike your water bills — a win-win!
Another striking and more modern water feature option is a reflective pool. They make a luxurious addition to modernly designed homes that some other features may not be able to pull off. Reflective pools can be custom made to your size specifications based on the land you have to work with, but they don’t need to be massive to add an impressive visual element to your landscape.
If you’re looking for a more simple addition, a boulder fountain may be the way to go. They add a great visual and auditory element to your landscape with a bold yet delicate presence as water trickles down the side of the massive rocks. Boulder fountains can be made from a single boulder, or by using multiple, various-sized boulders for a more outdoorsy look. They fit into almost any spot in your yard and if you’re having trouble deciding where to put it, we can help you find the perfect place.
Any type of water feature can be a beautiful addition to your central Iowa landscape and may give you the added bonus of attracting birds and wildlife such as deer to your backyard. It’ll also provide instant curb appeal to your home or property, which in turn increases its value.
Each of our water features is custom-designed based on your wants and needs. We’ll make sure the size of the feature is proportionate to the scale of your landscape, produce the exact style you’re going for, and stay within budget no matter how big or small.
