Waterscape refers to the water body around a landscape. While the word ‘landscape’ is a very popular word, waterscape is not quite known. Waterscaping is comparable to a landscape; the only difference is the improvement in the water features. Waterscapes enhance the aesthetic appeal of a place, as well as the natural view. If an area is encompassed by water, it’s ideal to waterscape it to make the space more attractive and beautiful, it could even become the favorite spot or the best place to meditate and relax after stressful days. There are four major categories of landscaping which are fountainscapes, pondless waterfalls, ecosystem ponds, and advanced ponds. There are certain factors to consider before working on a waterscape project or choosing a design, these factors include; size and space, proportion and scale, and installation.
Fountainscapes are small attractive water features like tabletop fountains, bubbling boulders or urns, in-ground reservoir etc. bubbling urns or boulders are large water features erected on an underground reservoir whereby, when the water in the boulder is filled up, the water spills into the underground bowl which in turn propels it back.

Pondless waterfalls are the most attractive and widely used feature that operates without a pond. It adds a dramatic and quiet ambience to an area. It’s the recirculation of waterfalls and streams which usually serve as a focal point for solitude, a quiet time or leisure times because of the view and the sound of flowing water it provides. All our clients who have this feature in their homes have had wonderful experiences, majority professing how they feel relaxed and free just by watching the water fall. However, this particular feature can be customized to suit your preference. If you’d to have your waterfall joined to pond, we can build it to your taste.
An ecosystem pond is inexpensive to maintain because it is balanced between natural ecosystem and artificial ecosystem both features which include aeration, fish, plants, rocks, filtration etc. The ponds can vary in size and shape and also looks so natural. Filtration is a critical requirement in keeping the pond clean and free of mosquito larvae, algae, leaves and all kinds of pond debris. Filtration also keeps the water sufficiently oxygenated. The addition of plants to your ponds will also help get rid of algae effortlessly.
Advanced ponds are a combination of pondless waterfalls and ecosystem ponds features. These ponds are large in scale and are mostly used in commercial places.
