THE HOMEOWNERS FAVORITE SPOT

This is a healing place for the wonderful homeowner who gave me the resources to create this DreamScape water feature masterpiece!

CRYSTAL CLEAR WATERS
       
     
CRYSTAL CLEAR WATERS

We love creating natural, living ecosystems that everyone, including birds, insects, bees, butterflies and dragonflies need to interact with to survive.  There is no chemical 'treatment' of the water, just beneficial bacteria to eat the algae.

LIVING WATER
       
     
LIVING WATER

Living water calms the soul, and eases the spirit.  Just to be near our DreamScape water features is to be put in touch with that calm place inside that only nature can provide.

DANCING WATERFALLS
       
     
DANCING WATERFALLS

We used very rare black granite with white stripes on this DreamScape pond.  It is dramatic and zen-like at the same time!

LIVING, DANCING, SPLASHING ART
       
     
LIVING, DANCING, SPLASHING ART

There is nothing like the way that water dances and ripples with light.  The sound of tranquil waterfalls is soothing indeed.

STONE BRIDGE OVER POND
       
     
STONE BRIDGE OVER POND

This concrete reinforced stone bridge invites one to take the magical journey over the pond.  

POND WATERFALL UPGRADE
       
     
POND WATERFALL UPGRADE

We sealed the existing concrete of this pond and then added the waterfall that you see, creating a wonderful ambiance for this part of the yard.

MAGICAL FALLS, POND AND BRIDGE
       
     
MAGICAL FALLS, POND AND BRIDGE

There is an amazing energy to this residence.  I have to give credit to the homeowner for using his outdoor living space well.  This Cabana is a great place to sit back, relax and let the water do the talking for a while...

WATERFALL TAKES CABANA TO THE NEXT LEVEL
       
     
WATERFALL TAKES CABANA TO THE NEXT LEVEL

There used to be a small, broken concrete and rock waterfall here for years, the produced little sound.  We demolished it, sealed the concrete pond, installed a rubber liner for the waterfalls and overlapped it into the pond.  Then we constructed this @5'5" tall waterfall and installed a new larger pump.  The result is wonderful!  The homeowner can easily control the amount of water flowing.

WATER SPLASHING
       
     
WATER SPLASHING

We constructed this waterfall perfectly so that people sitting in the cabana can experience the benefits of rushing water closely without it getting them wet.  Can you see the water splashing little water bubbles into the air on the right side of the picture?

CROSS THE BRIDGE TO THE CABANA OF COOL
       
     
CROSS THE BRIDGE TO THE CABANA OF COOL

This is Trex 'wood'.  Though we installed all of the fences for this property in 8' tall Redwood, the homeowner choose to go with a decking material that was more weather resistant and less maintenance than wood.

EXCELLENT BRIDGE OVER POND
       
     
EXCELLENT BRIDGE OVER POND

Having to cross over the 'drawbridge' looking entrance to the cabana makes it a magical experience every time one comes or leaves!

BLACK GRANITE WATER FEATURE
       
     
BLACK GRANITE WATER FEATURE

This is one of two water features that I have created where I was somehow able to get ahold of super rare black granite with white stripes.  They were very dense and heavy to work with!

DECK OVERHANGS POND = TOTAL ZEN!
       
     
DECK OVERHANGS POND = TOTAL ZEN!

We created the pond to go under this edge of the deck so that one can dangle their feet in the water...  This is a DreamScape come true!

THE OVERHANGING DECK
       
     
THE OVERHANGING DECK

The overhanging deck helps one to feel connected with the pond, because there is no barrier in between.

THE POND OF DREAMS
       
     
THE POND OF DREAMS

Wouldn't it be wonderful to come home and take a seat in your backyard with a view like this?  

A PERMANENT PARADISE!
       
     
A PERMANENT PARADISE!

Having living nature to interact with in your own backyard is a powerful assistant in promoting health.  Being near a water feature line this DreamScape Pond calms one down instantly.  The more time one spends here, the more one begins to follow the movements of the Koi fish.

THE FISH HIDE UNDER A ROCK
       
     
THE FISH HIDE UNDER A ROCK

The fish have plenty of places to hide from view when they are feeling shy, or from predators.  Pond fish have two main animals to be prepared for, raccoons and herons.

10 YEAR OLD WATERFALL
       
     
10 YEAR OLD WATERFALL

This waterfall is a decade old and it has held up wonderfully.  

LIGHTS IN THE WATERFALL
       
     
LIGHTS IN THE WATERFALL

There are small low voltage lights skillfully hidden throughout the waterfalls and pond.

THE POND PUMP IS WELL HIDDEN
       
     
THE POND PUMP IS WELL HIDDEN

The pump for the water feature is hidden in what is called the 'skimmer' on the right hand side of the picture.  It collects all the leaves and floating debris which can be lifted out and removed easily.  

ZEN MASTERPIECE POND
       
     
ZEN MASTERPIECE POND

There is a special magic that has accumulated at that particular pond that pictures have a hard time conveying.  There have been many incredibly talented rock stars, musicians & producers who have sat here and looked at this exact view.

WATER PLANTS
       
     
WATER PLANTS

No water feature is complete without some water plants to naturalize it.  There are a wide variety of plants that can thrive directly in water.  The plant in this picture is a decade old, and still looks great!

MULTIPLE WATER FEATURE PARADISE
       
     
MULTIPLE WATER FEATURE PARADISE

Having two different water features gives people two separate whole areas to enjoy, thus making the outdoor living space feel larger.

PONDS CAN HAVE FISH, TURTLES AND PLANTS
       
     
PONDS CAN HAVE FISH, TURTLES AND PLANTS

Ponds are living natural ecosystems.  They thrive with plants playing an important part of maintaining water clarity and ph balance.  Fish also help by eating algae.  

INVITING TO THE IMAGINATION
       
     
INVITING TO THE IMAGINATION

This view invites everyone walking by to come sit and splashing their feet in the water a little bit.  You can really feel close to the fish here too.

THE FISH HAVE LOTS OF PLACES TO GO
       
     
THE FISH HAVE LOTS OF PLACES TO GO

The fish can swim under the deck, or under the bridge, or by the house.  Its so cool watching the little, medium and bigger fish swim around.

MAGICAL POND AND GAZEBO PARADISE
       
     
MAGICAL POND AND GAZEBO PARADISE

Everything is perfectly proportional in this small area, with nothing too big and nothing too small.  

YEAR ROUND PARADISE
       
     
YEAR ROUND PARADISE

From sipping a warm cup of coffee in the cool winter mornings to having a cold glass of something refreshing in the summer evenings, this paradise is awesome!

SMALL AREA BIG RESULT

This is a relatively small area, but it feels huge!

DESIGN MASTERPIECE
       
     
DESIGN MASTERPIECE

This small space is a perfect blend of natures wildness and the calm safety of the covered cabana.  Water features can dramatically alter small spaces.

ENCHANTING DREAMSCAPE
       
     
ENCHANTING DREAMSCAPE

The curves of the pond are a perfect compliment to the straight lines of the cabana.

PONDS LOOK BIG, BUT ARE QUITE SHALLOW
       
     
PONDS LOOK BIG, BUT ARE QUITE SHALLOW

Ponds look quite big, but are usually only 2' deep.  They are very safe.

THE VIEW IS AMAZING FROM EVERY ANGLE
       
     
THE VIEW IS AMAZING FROM EVERY ANGLE

This pond and waterfalls is beautiful to see, feel and hear from any angle, whether from across the yard, from the cabana or inside the house!  That is not an accident.  Extremely careful planning and designing goes into each DreamScape masterpiece.

A WATER FEATURE CHANGES A LANDSCAPE MORE THAN ANYTHING ELSE CAN
       
     
A WATER FEATURE CHANGES A LANDSCAPE MORE THAN ANYTHING ELSE CAN

Dancing, singing water, whether from a fountain or a stream, a trickle or a gushing waterfall transforms the energy of a space more than anything else.  At night, they become another experience entirely when light makes the ripples reflect in and around the pond!

THERE IS A FLOW TO THIS YARD
       
     
THERE IS A FLOW TO THIS YARD

This yard, however small, feels huge.  There are so many different places to go, and two places two cross over well lit water at night while partying!  This is living the dream.  This is a Dream Scape Come True...
