There is something about being outside: the sun, the fresh air, the fragrances of trees and flowers, and the absence of the nervous energy of modern life. Though the great outdoors isn’t for everyone, the benefits of being outside, even if it’s just on your patio, are undeniable. For this reason and others, it’s important that you create the oasis in your Phoenix backyard that you want. Installing a water feature is a great way to get the most out of your patio and backyard. It can not only drown out the hustle and bustle of the world just over the fence and provides therapeutic and aesthetic benefits as well.

For all these reasons and more, Mountainscapers offers residents in the Phoenix area landscaping design services including the design and installation of water features. However, this landscaping element wasn’t our original idea. Water features have been incorporated in cities and communities around the world.

Bellagio Fountains – Las Vegas

Sin City doesn’t just allow their guests to be whoever they want to be for a weekend. The Bellagio Fountain is a sight that everyone, no matter your view of gambling, can appreciate.   

Magic Fountain of Montjuic – Barcelona, Spain  

If you love the look of historical artwork and, in particular, sculptures of the Renaissance, the Magic Fountain is a must-see.

Russia’s past is remembered with this stunning water feature. Sixteen beautiful gold-plated statues are situated as part of the fountain to remember the republics that used to make up the USSR.

The influence of the Greeks and Romans can be felt even today in Hyde Park, in New South Wales. Statues and stunning water features make this fountain one to remember.
