Water features are becoming increasingly desirable in the Vancouver housing market. They are the ideal way to bring a unique look to your home and pool. At the same time, with space at a premium in the city, it can be difficult for homeowners to find room for a pool. If you are facing this situation, but still want the serenity water can bring, water features can be the perfect solution. Add one or more to your backyard for a one-of-a-kind landscape design.
10 unique water features for your Vancouver home
1. A fountain
Nothing says luxury like having a fountain in your backyard or pool. As a landscaping option, many of our clients want the sophisticated chicness this water feature can bring. In a pool, however, a fountain can also be fun and family-friendly.
This is the hot new landscaping water feature. Essentially, there are several nozzles installed around your backyard. When these nozzles are turned on, they release a mist over your backyard, creating a look worthy of a fantasy movie. This is the ideal water feature for homeowners with picturesque views of the mountains.
3. A decorative pool finish
The days of the function over fashion pool are long gone. Now, homeowners generally want their pools to be water features in their own right. Achieve this with a stylish finish like a stone or tile design.
4. Dancing water
It is now possible to get fountains with multiple tight water jets that create a pattern. This creates the appearance that the water is dancing. Enhance the look with coloured lights and waterproof speakers that play music matching the water’s dance pattern. With this water feature, your backyard will always be ready to get the party started!
5. A watery walkway
One of our favourite water features is a walkway with a shallow pool running underneath it. This creates a calming environment at the front or back of your home, reminding you and your loved ones to embrace all life and nature has to offer.
6. A water wall
A water wall can be the perfect landscape or pool water feature. More classic options tend to be darker and more natural looking. If you are going for a more modern or party vibe, however, consider looking at a glass wall and adding lights that change colour.
7. A fountain table
This unique water feature is beyond chic. The base is a fountain and it is covered with a glass tabletop. Alternatively, you can have a glass top table with two panels, allowing water to flow in between. With a fountain table in your backyard, you will never fail to impress your loved ones and guests alike. We also enjoy that this piece is the perfect conversation starter. Everyone will be sure to ask you where you got it!
8. A pond
A pond allows you to bring a more natural feel to your backyard. If you want to amplify the natural touch, you can always add fish, rocks, or plants. Just make sure that, like with a pool, you keep in mind water safety and maintenance.
9. A rock waterfall
Waterfalls are one of the most beautiful natural wonders. Now, you can bring the glamour of a waterfall to your own backyard! This water feature includes a rock wall with a waterfall that cascades down it. We adore how versatile this element is, working as both a landscape element and a pool feature.
10. A sculpture with a water element
Sculptures allow you to elevate your backyard design. They can also be the perfect way to express your style be it modern or classic. Like a fountain table, a sculpture with a water element is a conversation piece. Just make sure to focus your design around this water feature if you want it to stand out.
