Water Features – Concrete
Concrete ponds and fountains have existed since the Roman Empire but things have been improved over the last 2000 years. Let’s talk specifically about water features and bypass the fish for now. One of the best things about a concrete water feature or large custom water fountain is that they can be as simple as a small reflecting pool and elaborate as the Fountains of Bellagio in Vegas. Your probably not quite looking for a Bellagio Style Water Show but instead a formal garden fountain feature for you home or business. Because there are no fish, concrete water features can be built very shallow to allow for building codes and be treated more like a swimming pool when it comes to filtration and water additives. Varied in design they can be multi-level, have sprayers, or water that shoots up while water flow down. They are typically more traditional in design but with today's technology and varied materials, tiles and coatings, they can also be incorporated into some really great cutting edge designs.
