Landscaped Ponds, Waterfalls & Water Garden Features
When you think of ultimate relaxation, does your mind go to a peaceful retreat with a babbling brook and a backyard waterfall? Or maybe you’re picturing a verdant, serene water garden with lotus flowers and koi? Landscaped ponds, waterfalls, and water fountains can transform your yard into that relaxing paradise you’ve been dreaming of.
At Four Seasons, we can make these dreams a reality. We have been adding custom water features such as ponds and waterfalls to yards throughout the Montgomery County, Maryland area for nearly 20 years.
Landscaped Waterfall and Pond Design & Installation in Maryland
Don’t have the space for a full pond with a waterfall? We can also install a pondless waterfall! Whatever type of waterfall and pond you have in mind, we can make it happen. Have an extravagant landscape in mind? A winding waterfall with moss-covered boulders and surrounding plants will be sure to impress your friends and family. Want a quiet, tranquil place to relax? A smaller landscaped waterfall works well.
Not sure what kind of waterfall or pond will work best with your yard? Four Seasons has you covered. If you have a naturally-sloping landscape, that’s great—if not, that’s okay, too! We will help you, from design to installation and beyond!
We can also dig out ponds in all shapes and sizes and provide pond lining work, as well as pump, filter, and skimmer installation. We will make sure to create the perfect environment for fish, turtles, frogs, and other animals.
When considering where to put your new waterfall of landscaped pond, consider the following:
- Visual interest: You don’t want your water feature to be boring! Don’t keep everything completely uniform—get rocks and boulders of different sizes and colors, and add colorful plants and even wildlife like koi to your pond.
- View and surroundings: Make sure to put your waterfall somewhere that you have access to viewing it. Don’t obstruct the view with overhanging trees, shrubbery, etc. You may even want to put a nice sitting area next to the landscaped water feature.
- Ground condition: Ideal conditions for backyard waterfalls and ponds are level areas that don’t present any drainage problems. Avoid putting the waterfall in a low area that is prone to flooding during heavy rains! If you don’t have any drainage available for your pond, it could quickly become clouded and dirty.
- Small details: For example, are you going to incorporate plants in your landscape waterfall design? Make sure your backyard waterfall will be in a spot that receives a lot of sun exposure.
Because the Washington, DC and surrounding Maryland and Virginia suburbs are in a climate that sees freezing temperatures during the colder months, we are careful with our installations to help ensure your new waterfall, pond, or water feature won’t be damaged during the sometimes-harsh winter. Our installation process is methodical and carefully planned, and we only use the best materials. If you ever need upkeep or repairs on your waterfall or pond, just give us a call and we’ll help set everything right.
