    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:

    Some of our water features include:

    Remember—our water features can be both beautiful and functional. If you want to keep cool in the summer, we can install a beautifully designed swimming pool complete with a decorative wall fountain, waterfalls, and slides.

    Design Inspiration for a Backyard Water Feature

    We understand that installing a water feature in your yard is not a small decision. There are a lot of factors to consider while determining what would look best and increase your yard’s aesthetic appeal the most. We are always happy to discuss the options with you and give our professional opinion on what water feature idea would benefit your yard the most.

    They were very professional—showing up exactly when they said they would, and things looked exactly how they described. And whenever anything did deviate from expectations, they were quick with communications. I could not expect anything more.

    Cottonwood Landscapes built a 20' semi-circular raised patio with pavers, along with some related projects that also involved electrical, carpentry and masonry. My feedback is very positive. Their design skills are excellent. They had a much better vision of the finished product than I did. Their crews were professional, dependable and talented. They knew what they were doing and showed up for a full day of work every day. They also had very good masonry and carpentry subs. And they were generally responsive and easy to work with. I will say this--they aren't cheap. There were some charges that had me scratching my head and we did have a few back and forths. But the questionable charges were relatively small compared to the overall price and I would much rather have a finished product that I love than take a minor price reduction. I would recommend them with confidence, especially for those with high standards.

    Overall I would say I am pleased with the design process and the installation. I had them regrade the slope and replace almost everything in my back yard. They replaced some clay with soil, regraded everything to slope away from the house, added a paver walkway, installed sod, and several other items. The workers showed up on time and worked very hard to get job done right and in a timely manner. The landscaping is beautiful, the paver walkway looks amazing, and most of the project looks great. You can tell that they know what they are doing and care about their work. My only frustrations were how they accidentally broke a rock feature and also how they missed some quality checks. Missing paver sand, pop up drains being buried too deep, and other minor items would all be quick and easy fixes if they had inspected the work or else responded to my requests before the ground froze. The good news is that they agreed to look at the missed items, and they agreed to fix them later… but I will have to wait 3-4 months for the ground to thaw and then hope that they are still willing to resolve everything then. They definitely got the most important things completed correctly in this project, and it really does look great. But it would have been a better experience if the final touches had been completed correctly and in a timely manner.

    Not easy to locate, lacking any signage, but I was finally able to find the right Building.

    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.
