Water Features

You’ve made it to the water features page! That is exciting - as it is one of our favourite elements in a landscape design. Although water features are a controversial element for most people, we believe they offer an incredible ambience to any space and they are often the WOW factor of the design (when done right!).

Just imagine the sound of running water now - it really is a star element.

We will run through some of the most important things to know when considering a water feature in your Dream Landscape:


What is a water feature?

A water feature is a decorative element that incorporates water into the landscape, such as fountains, ponds, waterfalls, or streams, adding tranquility and visual interest to outdoor spaces.


What to think about when crafting a modern water feature:

  • Minimalist Design - opt for clean lines and geometric shapes to create a sleek and contemporary look.

  • Materials - use modern materials such as stainless steel, glass, or polished concrete for a sophisticated appearance and durability.

  • Integration - ensure the water feature seamlessly integrates with the overall landscape design, enhancing the modern aesthetic of the outdoor space.

  • Smart Technology - incorporate smart features like programmable LED lighting or remote-controlled water flow for added convenience and customisation.

  • Lighting - elevate the water feature display with decorative lighting fixtures such as strips, spotlights or water colouring.

  • Sound Effects - choose water features that produce soothing sounds, such as gentle cascades or bubbling fountains, to create a calming ambiance.

  • Sustainability - explore eco-friendly options such as recirculating systems to minimize water consumption and environmental impact.

  • Focal Point - position the water feature as a focal point in the landscape, drawing attention and creating visual interest within the modern outdoor setting.

  • Maintenance - select low-maintenance designs that are easy to clean and upkeep, ensuring the water feature remains in pristine condition with minimal effort.


By incorporating these considerations, you can create a modern-style water feature that not only enhances the aesthetic appeal but also provides a refreshing and relaxing experience in your outdoor space.
