Water features are often what people dream of when envisioning their perfect yard. Whether it's a calming fountain, fish pond, or a stream running through your property, a water feature will be the talking point of all of your backyard gatherings and will be something you will enjoy for years to come. Water features can be the perfect addition to your Black Forest, Colorado home as flowing water adds moisture to the dry surroundings and improves air quality. Water features can bring even more beauty to the city's gorgeous landscape.
Ready To Get Started On Your Dream Landscape?
Just 5 miles northeast of Colorado Springs sits Black Forest, Colorado - a town with a rich history, rural feel, and tons of parks. Black Forest is quickly becoming one of the most popular places to call home in Colorado Springs. With great schools, loads of open space, and gorgeous homes, it's easy to see why Black Forest is becoming quite the destination.
Black Forest is home to a little over 13,000 residents - a small town, but steadily growing with very desirable school districts, a mild summer climate, and homesites that are beautifully forested with Ponderosa Pine trees. Speaking of Ponderosa Pines, that's how the town got its name. Black Forest is surrounded by plains that are covered with dense forests of Ponderosa Pines. The trees grow so close together that very little light is allowed through the forests.
Black Forest features many parks including Black Forest Regional Park - 370 acres - and Fox Run Regional Park - 417 acres. Both parks offer soccer fields, playgrounds, picnic pavilions and riding, hiking and cross country trails.
Our team has lots of experience working in the Black Forest area, so we are well aware of the community's landscaping needs:
- Retaining the town's rural character
- Rustic designs
- A wide range of architectural styles including ranch-style, mountain rustic, contemporary farmhouse, and more.
- Natural outdoor living spaces
- Landscape designs that mimic Colorado Springs' natural habitat
Water Features by Jake’s Designs
We have been serving the Colorado Springs area with beautiful custom water features for over 18 years. Our extensive experience in the area helps us understand the city's unique terrain and challenging weather. Whether you live in a single family, custom-built home, a massive estate, or humble log cabin, we can build a water feature that's perfectly suited to your special Black Forest, CO home.
Below are some benefits that water features provide:
- Boosts curb appeal. There's nothing like the view of a fountain or pond when entering a home. Water features can add aesthetic appeal to any property.
- Attract wildlife. Whether it's a bird flying over to take a quick sip or a dragonfly darting over the cascading water, water features invite natural wildlife to your yard.
- Bring texture. Water can provide a stark contrast to blades of grass or the hard lines of landscaping elements, such as pergolas or retaining walls.
- Add a personal touch. You can conceive a custom water feature design that reflects your unique personality and sets your home apart from others.
Bring life to your yard by adding the calming sound of water crashing against rocks from your fountain and the serene view of a cascading waterfall. Take advantage of our almost endless water feature services to transform your garden into a grand oasis.
WATERFALLS AND STREAMS
Whenever you came across a rippling brook in the woods or a waterfall in someone's backyard, you probably stopped what you were doing to listen to the peaceful sound and gaze at the wonderful sight. Well, you can kiss those wistful days goodbye. You can bring these water features to your very own backyard. A cascading stream or waterfall that flows into a gravel bed will not only add more visual appeal to your home, but it will provide the perfect getaway right in your own backyard.
FOUNTAINS AND BUBBLERS
Bubbling boulders and fountains are perfect for homeowners who want to add aesthetic appeal, but are working with limited space. A fountain can serve as the focal point of your garden space. Stone fountains blend into the natural surroundings and look great next to pebbles, stones, gravel, and flowering plants.
Have a smaller property with little room for a pool? No worries. A pond can be a great alternative. Take your landscape design to the next level and bring a multi-sensory experience to your outdoor space with a highly-customized pond. Ponds create reflections, movement, and sound, which can bring life to your outdoor space. Not only can we include koi fish and goldfish - which add vibrant touches of orange, black, and white - in your pond, but we can also create a beautiful water garden with common water plants in the Black Forest area. To add even more interest and make the pond blend into your landscape, we can provide edging and surrounding hardscape like stones, rocks, and concrete.
NATURAL SPAS AND HOT TUBS
We can build a resort-style spa and pool that will blend in with your outdoor space and natural surroundings. The addition of boulders and plants can soften the look of your custom spa. Stay warm during the cool nights in Black Forest and entertain guests in your hot tub while enjoying the view of Black Forest's rolling hills. We can line your custom spa with trees for added privacy and beauty.
