Case studies - Water Features

Water features are not only fun but introduce a calming conceptual impact into a garden design. Some are functional and form a means to encourage wildlife into your garden. It’s so lovely to see colourful birds resting about them, chirping away. Water features are another form of artwork either appreciative for their texture or form and also for their sound effects!

A case study on point is the Marybyrnong project where the water feature was also used as an artistic piece for the owners to enjoy all year round!! This was designed with minimum maintenance in mind but due to the use of the natural materials, a lot of care and preparation had gone into the construction and finishing off of the feature.

Also refer to our Glen Waverley, Doncaster East and Blackburn projects for other types of water features that can be installed.

Some of our clients also use their pools not for swimming in but, in fact, a large water feature as they are very appreciative of their reflective and calming qualities.  Refer to our Caulfield and Brighton projects as examples.
