The Sound of Relaxation: 3 Water Features for a Soothing Backyard Environment

Water features are always very exciting and awe inspiring. From the time that you were a small child, you have probably 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 beautiful customization? There are numerous features that can be added to your pool to create a calm, soothing atmosphere to your pool and backyard.

What are water features?

Water features are anything that is placed in or around your pool that can release water. Here are 3 options to keep in mind when looking for a great water feature to create that serene backyard environment.

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. Not only is this feature beautiful to look at, it creates a steady peaceful sound in your pool.

Ripple down

Ripple down water features are vertical sheets of water that spill over travertine layers, much like water cascading down steps. This water feature is great for those who want to have a more natural, earthy look to their pool, as well as those who enjoy the sound of moving water.

Sheer Descents

Sheer descents are water features that gently pour into the pool from pool or spa walls and come in configurations as various as a “sheet of glass” effect to sheets of rain-like droplets. They range in size from a few inches wide to several feet for a plethora of elegant looking applications, all providing the soothing sound of falling water!
