How To Transform Your Landscape Into An Oasis

Landscape water feature

You’ve walked your property, trying to decide how to turn your landscape into a modern-day oasis. If you’re like many West Tennessee homeowners, you’re tired of looking at a boring backyard. It’s dull, bland, and when friends stop by, everyone congregates inside.

If you want your guests to enjoy the outdoors, our team at Moeller Lawn & Landscape highly recommends adding water features. Once installed, the sounds of splashing water drown out unwanted noises. By adding these features, your landscape becomes the new hangout.

What Are The Best Backyard Water Features?

When you want a peaceful and tranquil backyard that hides the roadside noises and traffic sounds, you have a few choices. Below are a few favorites your neighbors have chosen.

Garden Fountains

One of the most straightforward water features to install is garden fountains. You can find do-it-yourself kits at local garden centers or home improvement stores. You will discover many styles to choose from, and you have a choice between standalone or wall-hanging units.

However, as many local West Tennessee homeowners do, they call us to install the fountain because they are short on time. Once in place, we’ll fill it with water, plug in the water pump, and test the unit to guarantee the water is flowing correctly.


Should you decide on having a backyard pond installed, you will have a little more work on your hands. Expect the process to be more labor-intensive. Similar to fountains, you can purchase a do-it-yourself pond kit, usually from the same locations.

To install your pond, you will need to measure the ground area you want it set up. Next, dig the hole for the pond. Once completed, it’s time to install a flexible or hard-formed plastic liner. Finally, add your rocks, pond filtration system, treat the water, and you’re ready to go.


If you want to take it up a notch, then consider installing a waterfall. This add-on can turn an ordinary swimming pool or existing pond into a resort-style getaway. With this water feature, installation is more complicated.

Before you begin, unless you have the experience planning the flow of water of a waterfall, it’s best to give us a call. One wrong calculation could send water streaming towards your home instead of where it’s intended.

Your Backyard Oasis Is One Call Away!

With three different water features to choose from, now it’s time to look closely at your budget. We recommend that you examine each option closely. Besides the cost, consider the amount of time it will take you to install your garden fountain, pond, or waterfall on your own.
