Mixing Hardscapes and Softscapes
Hardscapes and softscapes are important aspects of a well-landscaped area. Your backyard water feature is considered a softscape. This element of landscaping is something living, that organically changes or grows. In comparison, hardscapes are permanent elements such as concrete, stone, or buildings. Once installed, they stay the same over time and complement the softscapes around them.
A well-designed yard is a mix of hardscapes and softscapes, which are features Cottonwood Landscapes offers to clients. Hardscapes we design, install, and maintain include:

Frequently Asked Questions
This depends on what you want to get out of your custom water feature. Do you want an outdoor fountain that attracts birds, offers soothing sounds, and highlights a certain area of your yard? Or are you interested in a swimming pool that brings loved ones together for fun and exercise? Let’s talk about the atmosphere you want in your yard, and how we can achieve those results with our landscaping services.
You may want your water feature to have a place of prominence in your yard, or be tucked into a quiet corner to serve as a little getaway. Consider the purpose the feature will serve, and any zoning restrictions to ensure a pool isn’t too close to power lines, property lines, or under vegetation that will drop debris. We can help you consider all placement factors depending on the type of water fountains, pond, pool, or stream you want to install.
Water features need to be cleaned quarterly, and the water should always be flowing. Pumps need inspection, and water levels should always be maintained. In Utah, winterization of water features is recommended.
Waterproof materials are best and can include stainless steel, concrete, river rock, or tile. Depending on the type of feature (pool vs. pond, for example), a mix of materials can give the overall look you’re envisioning.
A lot of factors influence the cost of a pool in Utah, such as above-ground vs. in-ground, size, depth, and materials used. You could be looking at as little as $50,000 to as much as $250,000. Let’s set up a consultation to see what your specific budget should be based on your specific needs.
