Ponds & Waterscapes

Natural Features

Natural ponds, waterfalls, and other water features are one of our passions — and the difference between Your new “Blue Ribbon” water feature and those of other landscape contractors is this major emphasis on natural design features.  For example, we avoid the common “pile of rocks waterfalls” or “pond of pearls” techniques.  Ideas inspired by nature: hidden source, header pools, sunken logs, pinched stones, driftwood, etc. are concepts that will grace your new waterscape.  We primarily use Idaho Native Basalt or Boise Sandstone, and we ship basalt cobble out of Oregon and the Salmon River corridor to tie your feature together.   Long term construction includes: 10oz underlayment, mortared falls and pools, double liner under stones, autofill features, auto skimmers, check-valves, and biological filtration. Extras can include Koi ponds, pond-less construction, UV lights, underwater lights, pond plantings, or all the above.  Your garden space is different, and so your water feature is always a one of a kind design.

Architectural Features

Architectural water features, such as fountains, viewing pools, and water walls, add value and curb appeal. The right architectural water feature can really make a difference, especially in a confined living space with less room to work with. Water features are well known to add a distinct “soft noise” to muffle road noise or to help cancel out the day’s stresses.  These types of features are valued in either commercial or residential landscapes.

“ Nothing is softer or more flexible than water, yet nothing can resist it”
