The Sound of Relaxation: 5 Water Features That Create a Soothing Backyard Environment

Water features are always very exciting and awe inspiring. From the time that you where a small child, you have probably always been amazed by the look and the feel of water. So why is it that we install basic pools without ever adding any extra touches of class? Did you know that there are many different features that could be added to your pool? Are you aware that every pool has the capacity to hold one or more water features?

What are water features?

Water features are anything that is placed in or around your pool that can release water. Here are 5 options to keep in mind when looking for a great water feature.

1. The Rock Waterfall

The waterfall is a common feature that has been popular for many years. There is nothing that looks more stunning or more spectacular than a precisely placed waterfall. Backyard waterfalls could even be backlit to add extra ambiance; the possibilities are endless.

2. Fountains

Fountains are always a lovely addition to any backyard living space. They can be placed in a variety of places, including directly in the pool or on the edge of the pool deck.

3. The Oasis Feature

This is a wonderful water feature that is built directly into the wall of your swimming pool. Placed above the water level of your pool, the return water will run across a tray and empty into your pool. The fall of the water can be minimal or it can be increased for more intense enjoyment.

4. Deck Jets

If you like the look of fountains, but are looking for something a bit more unique, then maybe you need to utilize the deck jet. Deck jets are essentially fountains that are placed inside your pool deck and they shoot water directly into your pool.

5. Custom Cascades

Perhaps you would like to have your returned water to come from a decorative element, such as a pot. If so, then this is the feature for you. This is a basic function of every pool, but it is spiced up with the addition of an aesthetically pleasing clay pot.
