FAQs About Water Features

Have you ever felt like your yard was lacking something? Most likely it's lacking a water garden! Water features have the wonderful ability to make your yard instantly feel like a spa and give you feelings of peace and relaxation. While they are beautiful to look at, they can seem intimidating if you've never had something like that before.

How much maintenance is involved with a water garden?

We can create a water feature that involves as much maintenance as you would like. From a few minutes a day if you have fish, to a few minutes a month. The best part is, you can have all of the joys of a water garden without the maintenance by hiring the best landscape maintenance company at the Lake of the Ozarks!

Will my water garden increase the mosquito population?

It will not. Water gardens are designed to be continually moving, and mosquitos don't lay their eggs in moving water, only stagnant. If something happens and your water garden needs repairs, give us a call so we can get it up and running quickly.

What size water garden should I build?

This is all based on your preference and the size of your yard. From small fountains to large gardens the sky is the limit with possibilities. We can't wait to see what you would like to do in your yard, and help you create the perfect paradise.

How long do water gardens last?

Water gardens are built to last when cared for properly. Pieces of your garden will need to be replaced occasionally. Sometimes the pumps or hoses fail, sometimes things may need to replace but in the end, your water feature is built to last.

Do my pumps need to be run continually?

You will want to keep them running for as long as you want to keep the water feature. Every water feature is different, though. If you have a fountain you can easily keep the water running, or turn it off. Be aware that when you turn it off, you are allowing water to sit, and this can be a breeding ground for bacteria and insects. If you have a water garden, you will want to keep it running continually unless you are winterizing it, in which case you'll be removing the water so it shouldn't affect the quality.
