When most people think of outdoor water features, what immediately comes to mind is an outdoor pool area. What many homeowners don’t understand is that a pool is just one of the many water features that you can apply to your outdoor landscape. The landscape design artists at Atlanta Outdoor Makeover and Construction are skilled in creating all varieties of water features from koi ponds to waterfalls. Science has shown that the sounds of nature can help reduce stress throughout the body. Instead of trekking out into the wilderness to experience the sounds of nature, why not walk outside into your newly designed Atlanta landscape?
Water fountains: Water fountains are a homeowners first thought when approaching the idea for an outdoor design feature. The sound of rushing water is not only soothing, it provides a natural aesthetic for Atlanta homeowners to enjoy as they sit in their outdoor living area. They also have a huge fan base in Atlanta’s bird community, as a water fountain acts as a bird bath and drinking fountain. Outdoor Makeover and Construction’s landscape contractors are fully equipped to create the perfect water fountain for your back or front yard design. Whether small or large, your outdoor water fountain will be the perfect addition to your landscape.
Ponds: The picture perfect addition to your outdoor oasis could be a water lily or koi pond. Imagine walking over your newly constructed walkway and looking at your outdoor pond feature. The idea of having an outdoor pond has grown more popular over the years due to the growth of creativity in water landscape design. Japanese water gardens can bring the perfect colorful touch to your backyard and can serve as a man-made addition to our Georgia ecosystem. Surprisingly, ponds are easier to manage than a full size pool and can help you save money without cutting down on the pleasing visual elements.
For many, a swimming pool is the ultimate backyard amenity. The proper combination of water features, unique lighting, specialty materials and design can make your pool a powerful influence on your outdoor living space, particularly when well illuminated with night lighting. Remember, a pool is just one section of the larger landscape. Our landscape architects will design your pool and your entire space at the same time. Often a pool contractor is employed to install a pool without consideration to an overall site plan. The result is a pool which does not complement the surrounding landscape and the opportunity is lost to integrate components which increase value without an increase to cost. Pools are expensive but you’ll only build it once so give time to the design and let your landscape architect from Outdoor Makeover, recommend high quality, timeless materials and details to create a pool design that will not go out of style.
