At Alive Outside Landscaping, custom water features for your home or business is a specialty of ours. We design water features that become an integral part of your landscaping design and can increase the value of your property. Water features come in a variety of styles, sizes, and materials that can be customized to enhance the architectural style of your property.
Our water features can be designed and installed at homes and businesses around Fort Collins and other areas that include Loveland and Windsor, CO.
There is an assortment of materials that can go into building a great water feature. Pond liners, in both rigid and flexible material, are used in many of the water features to establish the depth and size of a pond, stream, or pondless waterfall. Many of the natural water features can include a combination of large stones, river rocks, and small gravel.
Additional materials are used in constructing larger water features like water fountains. A combination of any of these materials can be used, depending on your design and style:
We have experience in designing and installing a variety of water features that fit any size yard and budget. The following are some of the most popular and common water features we offer in the Fort Collins, Loveland, and Windsor communities.
These structures can be small and simple or large and grandiose. Many fountains have built-in features such as statues, sconces or scuppers, and LED lights. Fountains are meant to be a focal point and stand out from the rest of your landscaping. These structures are versatile and can be made to drip slowly and peacefully or gush in large amounts.
One reason our customers like water fountains is that they offer unlimited design flexibility and bring a classic feature to their property.
There are endless options when installing a new water feature on your property. Choices range from large waterfalls, ponds, and fountains to a small pondless waterfall in your landscaping bed.
If you have a tight space then a pondless waterfall may be your best option! These features can be wedged into small spaces and are a low-maintenance way to incorporate a water feature into your property. Pondless waterfalls avoid stagnant water by pumping the water that collects in a basin below the surface, back up into the waterfall.
The most maintenance you may have with a pondless waterfall is to top off the supply of water every couple of weeks. But, even this can be avoided by installing an auto-fill feature.
Streams require a more space and design planning to integrate them into the landscaping naturally. For a natural landscape effect and calming sounds, streams make a wonderful addition to any landscaping.
When it comes to installing these beautiful water feature projects our experienced team has the know how to ensure your project is successful and completed in a timely manner.
Natural ponds are a popular choice for homeowners that want a water feature that reflects a natural setting incorporated into the yard. Ponds can be created to hold Koi or a waterfall. They can also be designed to fit your space and budget easily. The first step in building your new pond is the excavation involved with installing the lining.
Koi ponds are also a great option for many of our clients and are typically larger than regular ponds and require more parameters that allow the Koi to thrive in the environment.
Bubbling rock fountains are an excellent option for small spaces and homeowners that love the soothing sounds of moving water. Due to their compact size, they can be built in just about any spot in your yard. The operating costs are low and they have easy maintenance requirements, and so they are a budget-friendly way of introducing water elements into your landscaping design.
If you have an informal garden and wish to enhance the natural beauty of your existing property, be it in the woods or a meadow, we would suggest a water garden. Water garden designs are inspired by nature, and they are designed to provide your property with a natural waterscape.
A well-designed water garden will give you somewhere tranquil to relax.
