For maximum visual interest, this outdoor water feature flows straight through a garden of flowerbeds. Where the stone basin complements the walkway to the right, the rusted metal path both naturally suits the greenery and adds warmth to the aesthetic.
This bowl water feature provides a relaxing focal point for patios. Aquascape is known for its sustainable, low-maintenance water gardens, and this lightweight patina bowl with interior pump is no exception. In this photo, the bowl on the left is shown with an additional spillway bowl on the right.
Fountains flow from metal cages filled with natural, neutral rocks into small concrete pools. A center cement block allows for easy passage across each pool. The rocks give the design a pleasing natural texture and zen feel.
This natural rock retaining wall not only adds texture surrounding the swimming poll, but it doubles as a support for a built in waterfall featuring flowing into the body of the pool. Mosaic tile in the water catches the light for a touch of shining color.
The waterfall bench connecting the makeup console and its supporting end embraces the idea of flowing water, much like that of Frank Lloyd Wright's famous Fallingwater house. Moreover, the wall-mounted faucets enhance the cascading effect of water.
The spout protrudes out creating a shady corner under this waterfall structure. The water flows down into a manmade pond with a rounded concrete edge. Plants popping up from the water bring natural life and color to the landscaping.
Cisterns provide a large water storage option for roof runoff. Think of them like a rain barrel on steroids. A covered cistern eliminates insect issues that can develop with open rain barrels. Most large cisterns include a pump to speed water flow from the tanks.
Framed by tall green hedges, this formal water feature adds a whimsical detail to the garden. Water flows from a decorative ceramic mask hung from the plastered wall, into a basin filled with aquatic plants like water lillies.
This stone fixture rises up from the stone tile walkway showcasing the a gentle water flow. Colorful flowers garnish the water feature for a beautiful and natural element to decorate the entryway. Cool and warm neutral tones mix together in the tile to compliment and marry the mix of exterior materials.
A feature wall leads visitors to the spa-like hot tub, but not before leading them along a unique feature wall. Three stone "frames" are the home to glass and metal sconces which have both fire and light elements. Below the scones, water flows from tiny spouts into the pool, creating an audible element along the pathway to the relaxing spa.
Water is the key feature in this stunning backyard, inspired by traditional Islamic gardens. A stunning pool with fountain, lined in beautiful neutral tiles, provides a relaxing oasis from hot summer days. A rock garden with blue flowing urns set is set in manicured green grass. A black table and chairs sit on the flagstone patio.
