Ponds and Water Features

What’s a garden but an extension of our inner peace? In San Francisco, where space is at a premium, many home and business owners are finding that ponds and water features can provide a lovely and relaxing oasis. Asian landscaping often includes prominently placed ponds or waterfalls, and these can be adapted to almost any landscape.

Ponds can range in size from small containers holding only a few gallons of water to large natural-looking pools set amidst rocks and plantings. Water features can be used indoors or outdoors, and can even be incorporated into fountains or other garden features.

Whether you are looking for a simple way to add some beauty to your yard or wanting to create a tranquil retreat, ponds and water features may be the answer. At Tamate Landscaping we create custom water features that add the personal signature in your landscaping project….
