If you have been looking at options to add a pool water fountain to your home but have been intimidated by the extra cost on your water or electric bills, look no further some of the awesome solar varieties on the market in 2022. One of our company's biggest businesses is in adding backyard pool fountains to enhance existing designs, so I would consider myself an expert on the topic. The best solar water fountain is one that can be run completely on power from the sunlight and that can be disguised well amongst your landscaping (you don't want an unsightly solar panel ruining your garden views). In general, the easiest pool fountains to install are the flat waterfall style that fall from a retaining wall of some sort into the primary basin of the pool like in this backyard. These conserves water and are easy to disguise with rocks, flowers, and shrubberies. Even better, it is easy to add accent lighting along side the fountain because you already have the wiring behind the wall.
When people are designing their backyard, they often forget about pool landscaping. Adding a nice water feature like this is not enough to create a fabulous outdoor entertaining space. You must carefully take care to incorporate your pool into the design so that it feels cohesive and intentional. One of my favorite ways to achieve this is by incorporate swimming pool fountains into the design. These fairly inexpensive features instantly elevate the look of any backyard and make it seem like a resort rather than a residential property. Pool fountains combined with some great underwater accent lighting is, in my opinion, the ultimate in outdoor design. This homeowner utilized these elements perfectly to create an understated space that still has that "wow factor."
Swimming pool water features are a great way to upgrade an old unit or just to add some pizazz and luxury to a backyard entertaining space. The term water feature means a variety of different things to different people. For some it is as simple as a small waterfall cascading in the the main basin, while to others their idea of a water feature is a large above ground pool fountain like this one. As you search around for the best design for your space, I encourage to to keep a few important things in mind. First and foremost, remember the scale of your space and how much of the pool you want taken up by your water feature. This large decorative cast iron fountain fills most of the small lap pool in this backyard garden. The owner never really used the pool, so they opted to turn it into a large decorative accent for the courtyard. If you plan to utilize yours for exercise or play, you will want to limit the size of the water feature to give you enough area for use. Another key thing to keep in mind when selecting pool fountains, is how much water the features will use. Don't forget that your water and electric bills will likely increase as a result of the new addition, so choose your piece wisely.
I love adding pool fountains and waterfalls to backyards because they create that stunning resort-style oasis that always wows guests and potential buyers. Plus, believe it or not, they are not that challenging or expensive to install if you plan out your water features correctly. This homeowner originally wanted an indoor swimming pool but it was far outside their desired budget, so they decided update their existing backyard one instead. For this gorgeous desert home, we created this impressive look using multiple single stream fountains and new LED bulbs installed in their existing pool lighting system. To add that extra wow factor, we installed fire basins flanking either side of the pool overlooking the beautiful desert landscaping beyond. The result of adding these pool fountains is an impressive outdoor entertaining area that cost a fraction of what they would have spent and that they will be able to enjoy with their guests much more frequently.
Pool water features are a great way to update your backyard pool and make it into something more beautiful and playful for your friends and family. For this home, we installed one of those dream designs that most people only dream of but would never actually think to add to their backyard. They had an existing fiberglass pool and beautiful patio paver deck surrounding it. The design was night, but it was lacking any real wow factor or someths. ing that would make it standout from others in the neighborhood. The kids of the family had been looking at pictures of swimming pool slides for awhile, so we decided to add a large rock feature on one side that would incorporate multiple unique pieces to satisfy all members of the family. On one side of the rocks we added a slide and on the other side we installed a lovely spa for the parents to enjoy. In order to make the entire unit cohesive we install pool fountains between the two features and cascading from the spa into the main water basin. The result is an awesome backyard play area that everybody enjoys.
I have always been a fan of utilizing pool fountains to escalate the look of your backyard entertaining areas. There is nothing that can take inground pools from ordinary to extraordinary quite like installing some sort of water feature. Wether it is a simple single stream fountain like in this cool Arizona yard, or a grander waterfall, they can instantly make your home look like it is actually an upscale resort. If you are interested in adding outdoor fountains like this to your yard, definitely do your research on the energy and water requirements of each unit before purchasing and installing. They can make quite a significant change in your monthly bills so that is certainly something to take into consideration. Also bear in mind the scale of the feature in comparison to your pool or patio space (in the case of a free standing fountain).
