What to consider when having a water feature built

Water features are the jewel of the garden ! Or we should say, can be to jewel of the garden. When improperly built, unfortunately that is not the case.

Have you or one of your friends ever dealt with a poorly built water feature? Did you make a sizable investment into what you were hoping would beautify your garden, only to be disappointed by a embarrassing non-functioning eyesore? Unfortunately every year we are called in to people’s homes where they tried to install a water feature through an inexperienced contractor, and long story short, they now have a disaster in their backyard. It is too bad, as these people that tried to go cheap, now end up spending much more to fix the problems and get it installed right.

No one is more qualified or has more experience in water features than olympian water gardens. We have decades of experience, which allows us to design and create the best water features that require the least maintenance, which means you get maximum enjoyment.
