Description


Water is an integral element in our environment, whether it is the main event or simply the icing on the cake. Surprising science shows how being near, in, on or under water can make you happier, healthier, more connected and better at what you do. It does all of that for our clients as well. Visually it can change the way we feel. The reflections of beautiful landscaping or architecture repeated on the surface of a pond, water garden or pool can be appreciated twice and offer a unique perspective. The audible qualities of water can bring environments into focus or block out unwanted outside noise. Water features, fountains, ponds, waterfalls, Koi ponds, pools and spas will be explored and applications detailed. All types of edge details will be presented including; water in transit, vanishing edges, perimeter overflow and more. Unusual uses of water will be provided. Water conservation and rainwater harvesting will also be included. Sometimes we in the water industry need to step back and be reminded of the many benefits our ultimate product provides.
