Different Kinds of Waterfalls
Your imagination is the only limit in the design we can create for your garden. The soothing sound and sight of bubbling water can add ambiance to your outdoor living space and also mask unwanted noise. Many waterfall styles are available to you, and we work together with you to choose the best match for your existing landscape. Some of the more popular styles of waterfalls that we have built for our clients in Castle Rock include:
Wall Waterfall – The aesthetic and emotional power of water flowing down a wall is very dramatic and adds an interesting dimension. The cascading water is breath-taking.
Pondless Waterfall – A pondless waterfall re-circulates water without a pond that is visible. The reservoir or pond is actually covered by stones, which creates an effect of disappearing water. This is a great option for families with young children or for those who are looking for minimal pond maintenance.
Waterfall with Streams – If you are looking for a more complete, natural feeling system, you might want to consider a waterfall with a stream. With this type of waterfall, the water cascades down rocks to a pond at the bottom.
Types of Ponds for Your Landscape
Similar to waterfalls, ponds can turn an outdoor space into a personal oasis. With a well-designed pond, the sound and sights create a relaxing and calming effect. Ponds also make a nice focal points in a garden. Below are some types of ponds that have become quite popular:
Garden Ponds – With a garden pond, not only is there visual interest to a backyard, but they also help the environment. These ponds replicate the ecology of small, natural bodies of water and help to support wildlife habitat. They usually contain plants and fish and often attract other animals, such as dragonflies and amphibians. Garden ponds can be designed in various shapes and sizes.
Koi Ponds –Koi ponds are designed to hold koi fish, which are brightly colored Japanese fish. These types of ponds are often popular for hobbyist primarily because of the cost and maintenance considerations associated with them.
Fountain Ponds – A fountain pond can create natural “music” in your backyard with their soothing sights and sounds. These ponds have a fountain jet that sprays water into the air. These are a very popular choice for Castle Rock residents.
