Custom Courtyard Water Features
Adding a water feature to your landscape project is always a great way to introduce a tranquil and serene feel to any outdoor living space. But when you are designing a confined courtyard living space, your biggest concern could be wasting your limited and valuable square footage on a water feature. But that will not be an issue for the UNIQUE design team who offers over a decade of experience designing water features to compliment even the smallest spaces.
Often times a courtyard has a small footprint and offers no truly out of the way space for a free standing water feature or pond. In this instance, a water feature incorporated along a wall is the perfect solution. These features can range from a very modern sheer descent metal scupper to a more old world urn which gently overflows into a small basin for recirculation.
Even a small water feature will provide a great focal point and offer a more natural look to create a more inviting outdoor living space. It is a way to bring nature into the small space as well as a way to naturally generate some soothing grey sound. Most courtyards have the tenancy to be an echo chamber where voices reverberate and become overwhelming. But even the slightest amount of moving water will create a soothing gurgle much like the relaxing sound found along a tiny creek. This sound helps to tone down any voices or outside noise which may be around the courtyard.
Ask your UNIQUE designer how a small water feature can transform your courtyard or enclosed patio space into a tiny tranquil oasis of relaxation.
