Water features are an aesthetic accessory—whether you just add a stand-alone water feature or a full suite of water features and matching accessories—the sights and sounds of cascading water will improve your landscape.
We interviewed four pool “renovators” who actively use accessories to update and add functionality to their pool designs. Dan Lenz at All Seasons Pools in Orland Park, IL, Martin Rowland at Bama Pools in Florence, AL, Clark Pulliam at Pulliam Pools in Houston, TX and Glen Bullard at Fort Worth Custom Pools in Fort Worth, TX. Here is what they are finding popular and easy for pool owners who want to update their backyard landscape.
Custom Pools, Fort Worth, TX: Water bowls and fire / water bowls are not hard to add and give a quick facelift to the pool.
Bama Pools, Florence, AL: Most of my customers have seen HGTV with the pools that have the big beautiful, custom water feature on the pool that go for $10-20K. So my customers are pleasantly surprised when I introduce them to the WOK water feature by Inter-Fab. It isn’t a scary price, especially in the scope of the $20-$30K pool project. I have had great success with the double-wok. The WOK is great because it’s easy to maintain, no plantings required, people like the shape, especially the double WOK that stair steps one into the other. They are easy to put on AND easy to take off in the winter when you want to close and cover the pool with a safety cover. It takes less than an hour to install. I also install a lot of artificial rock waterfalls, especially for empty-nesters looking to enhance their backyard relaxation. In less than 2 hours I can install one of these products and the pool ‘look’ really changes. These water features are an easy accessory to update any pool.
