Water and fire are two elements generally thought of as completely incompatible. Fire turns the water into steam. Or water extinguishes the fire. Yet one of our recent landscaping projects in Washington, Utah incorporated those two elements along with a third – earth in the form of boulders – into an amazing pair of water/fire/stone features.
First we created the stone foundation for these two focal points in our landscape project. Carefully placing and securing the rock into place. Then we installed the plumbing and the pumps and carved channels for the water to follow. At that point, gas lines and burners were installed and the highlights of this project came together.
A place for entertaining
Lit up at night, the flames dance through the falling water creating a visual element and an auditory element to the landscape.
Hidden speakers throughout the yard allow music to be played seemingly from everywhere.
The pool glows and the lights play on the palm trees. It’s the perfect place for an evening with friends.
But during the day, there’s just as much fun to be had for the kids. Natural grass grows beneath a playground. We installed a trampoline and the homeowners added a poolside basketball hoop.
There are future places for a gazebo to cover an outdoor kitchen and a flat and level place for a greenhouse.
Front yard features artificial turf
Out front, artificial turf makes caring for the lawn effortless. No mowing, no watering, no brown spots, no weeds. And the perfect green accents make for fantastic curb appeal. Coupled with less water-intensive plants like palm trees, fence post cacti, canna lilies, yucca, and agave, and artificial turf landscape requires very little water. Creating a definite advantage for homeowners financially and aesthetically.
This was a spectacular project to be a part of and we’re proud to be able to put our names on this spectacular landscaping project. This is definitely a home that could’ve been showcased in the St. George Area Parade of Homes.
