Water Features

Water Features

Water adds rhythm and life to any landscape. It has been used for several hundred years all over the world to enhance the beauty of a property. A simple fountain or a small pond can transform the entire look and feel of your landscape. Depending on what kind of design you’re aiming for, water features can add a touch of serenity or grandeur.

Many Outdoor Improvement clients have already installed some interesting and unique water features here in Eagan as well as Minneapolis, Burnsville, Savage and Woodbury. Water features added a design element, but they also lend a very unique home. The flowing water produces a very soothing sound and it also helps in dulling other surrounding sounds.

Our enthusiastic clients in Eden Prairie, Saint Paul, Apple Valley, Lakeville and Maplewood have experimented with different water feature designs. Because of the growing popularity of these elements in our service areas, we’ve gained experience in designing and installing them.

Water Feature Design Concepts

Water Features

While we are designing water features, our designers keep a number of aspects in view:

  • The size of the garden or yard
  • Creating a focal point with a water feature
  • The number of features you want installed
  • Checking whether you need pondless waterfalls
  • Ensuring that there is a proper water supply and drainage
  • If a pond installation is required, we check if you are going to have fish in them. In this case, the location of the pond will have to be in a semi-shaded place
  • Your design ideas
  • Your maintenance requirements
  • We also make sure that these water features blend in beautifully with the architectural concept of your home

Ponds and Waterfalls

Water Features

Nothing adds an element of natural, earthy beauty to your garden or backyard quite as well as a pond does. Rock water features are gaining popularity amongst home owners. Many homeowners are particularly enamored by koi ponds with fish and aquatic plants thriving in them. A beautifully planned pond can lend a raw appeal into your backyard, and people who live in cities and suburbs like to have a more natural and untamed-looking landscape.

The movement of water from the waterfalls also adds to the environment, bringing serenity and peace into your immediate surroundings. Many of our clients have found ponds and waterfalls to be very relaxing and soothing after a stressful day.


Fountains have been around for several years and we’ve been installing them for as long as we’ve been in business. They can act as a focal point or an accent to your landscape. A great fountain can transform your whole backyard or garden and turn it into a retreat.

Fountains can come in various shapes and sizes. Modern fountains can be minimalistic or grand. Recently, disappearing and pondless fountains are also gaining popularity.
