Artificial streams are installed into yards with much the same mechanisms as a fountain; all that’s needed is a pipe to transfer water from one location to another. All the same, installing a stream in order to minimize maintenance and maximize aesthetics takes careful planning and an experienced hand. First of all, you’ll want to check for existing utility lines so as not to disrupt the infrastructure. Secondly, it’s important to note whether your chosen spot is under a tree (which will cause it to fill with debris) or in an especially windy or sunny spot. For good maintenance, the area should be sheltered, but not surrounded by too much deciduous growth.
Furthermore, a fountain mechanism will need special care during Utah’s cold winters. Pumps need to be flushed in order to prevent expanding ice from damaging the structure. When we install your mechanical stream, we’ll help you choose something that will hold up well over time.
Many streams also include some overall landscaping and technical setup. We can help from beginning to end, from design to installation. Whatever your vision, we have the tools and experience to bring your dream to life.
