Installation Process


Any type of water feature will help create a serene space by adding the sound of moving water.  It is important that no matter which water feature you choose, proper preparation goes into not only the planning but the execution of the installation.  Our 3-D design software ensures that your vision translates to the finished product you have been dreaming of.    Do not leave the craftsmanship to chance.  The aesthetics and visuals are crucial to creating a natural flowing water feature.  Ensuring that skimmer boxes and liners are hidden, are necessary if you are trying to create a natural pond or stream.  Understanding stone placement is essential to creating natural drops and water movement, the way nature intended.

Equally important; if not more important than aesthetics is structural integrity.  Ensuring that fountains have the proper coatings; you can eliminate costly repairs due to inappropriate recommendations.  Pond construction can open the floodgates of issues if quality control is lacking during installation.  Ponds require not only a high end liner, but the proper underlayment to ensure a leak free environment.  Extra special care must also be given to the placement of stones as to not damage the new liner during construction.  When it comes to waterfalls and grottos, it is extremely important to understand the necessary structural support needed to construct these features.  Under the pressure of these giant rocks, the structure can crumble if the appropriate footings are not part of the installation.  A small waterfall will start at about 6,000 lbs. and can go upwards of 100,000 lbs. as the size of the water feature increases.  Some grotto ledgestone’s can be in excess of 20,000 lbs. putting an overall grotto build in excess 150,000 – 300,000 lbs.  Proper planning; as well as the understanding of footer size, placement and strength is imperative to constructing an aesthetically pleasing and safe water feature.  If these details are adhered to, you can expect years of enjoyment for the entire family.
