Water Garden Design Process

During our initial consultation, we assess the on-site factors of your property including form, function, and adding sustainable value to your home long-term. We meet with you and discuss your outdoor aquatic needs, desires, and goals. We get to know you and how you plan to use your water garden. We then develop a design plan that encompasses and considers the on-site information we’ve gathered, your needs, and the existing landscape. We pride ourselves on creating designs that transform your outdoor space into an expression of your identity while adding the wonderful peace and tranquility that comes with the sound and sight of water!

5 Types of Water Features

Our pond designs can be as interesting or as simple as you like. Our clients have the freedom to choose ponds that make their water garden dreams come true. We install interactive koi ponds, natural rock veneer ponds, and mini garden ponds, just to name a few.

The sound of moving water in the landscape adds a sense of peace and tranquility. Small and large streams can be designed to compliment large public areas as well as more intimate spaces.

The great thing about this particular water feature is the flexibility when designing them. We can construct any design you desire, adhering to the theme of your landscape. Waterfalls provide a beautiful entry to your pond.

When a more architectural or formal water feature is needed, we can recommend and install a variety of different aquatic statuary fountains. For your convenience we have a variety of fountains at our AquaScapes retail store.

Whether you prefer a gunite, liner, or Desjoyaux swimming pool, our aquatics team stands ready to help you from design to construction. Visit our Swimming Pools page to learn more.

..And Don’t Forget to Turn on the Lights!
We provide custom lighting designs and installation with all our projects, allowing you to enjoy your water feature day and night.

Water features can easily add aesthetic value and offer a sense of peace and tranquility to the garden. After all on-site factors are considered the available space, existing amenities, and overall theme of your property are just some of the factors that must be considered. At DSLD, we ensure that every water garden that we create will complement your landscape.
