Water Features

Water Features

A back or front yard that incorporates water features brings not just distinction and beauty to the property, but a source of tranquility and relaxation to the homeowners.

As more and more property becomes developed, homeowners often become more removed from nature. Absence of living things, fresh air and moving water can create stress for the mind and body. Adding a water feature to your property can provide a spot for you to re-center each day and re-connect with the world outside of technology.

Earthworks Landscaping builds a wide variety of water features, including fountains, waterfalls, ponds and streams.

Fountains and Waterfalls

Small yards may not have space for a large water feature, so many Syracuse, Utah, homeowners opt for small fountains. These combine the relaxing sound of moving water with the artistic design of quarried stone. While it’s true that home-improvement stores sell ready-made fountains in a box, these are not unique. If you shop in the same stores as your neighbors, you could all end up with the same fountain.

Earthworks designs a fountain for each customer. Stone comes in an almost endless variety of colors, shapes and sizes, so each fountain can be different.

A waterfall may or may not take up more space than a fountain — it depends on the homeowner’s wishes. We have constructed streams that meander from the back of a property to the front, culminating in a cascading waterfall. But we also can construct waterfalls in a designated section of your yard that take up no more room than a fountain would.

Ponds and Streams

If you have the space for a pond or stream in your yard, this is a really great way to bring nature back into the suburbs in Syracuse, Utah. Koi ponds have continued to be popular throughout the last few decades because the fish add not only life to your yard, but brilliant color as well. And while a koi pond needs proper maintenance for the fish to thrive, they are easier to care for than an indoor tank of tropical fish.

Although live fish are a great addition to a backyard pond, homeowners who don’t want the responsibility of taking care of them can opt for just plants instead. A pond with aquatic plants such as lilies can turn anyone’s backyard into a private oasis!

We can create the perfect backyard pond or stream for you so that you feel like you live out in the wooded countryside instead of the suburbs of Salt Lake City, Utah.

We give you options on the color, size and shape of the stones that will line the edges of your water feature, and we show you exactly what the final design will look like. We know the best plants for our Utah climate, and you can choose your favorites.

Although some elements of building backyard ponds and streams remain constant — careful excavation, proper lining and preparation, etc. — each structure is different, because each homeowner and landscape is different.

When you choose to work with Earthworks Landscaping to create a water feature for your property, you know you will get a one-of-a-kind design.

Emanuel and his crew did a great job on our yard! Sam and Maria are great and super hard working! They made sure we we're 100% happy before finishing up! Even follow up after they were done was great! Thanks

Fantastic work. They took our vision of our yard and made it a reality. Alex, Juan and Marcos were hard workers and showed up promptly every day. Carter helped us talk through the project each day and was very receptive to our ideas and helped make suggestions about the project as a whole. They cleaned up well and we couldn’t be happier with the final product. We absolutely recommend Earthworks for any landscaping needs.

Earthworks was easy to work with. They came to do our estimate the day they scheduled it and were willing to work with us on a small project that we wanted to do partially ourselves. They itemized everything on the bid that allowed us to decide which things we felt we needed to hire out. Their work was excellent!

Earthworks was the third landscaper I'd worked with in our new home (in just 3 years) and they were by far the best. Easy to work with, very organized and clear--the calendar on their site is consistently up to date. I worked with Manny as a Project Manager and he was crazy responsive (easy to text at all times of the day) and great to ask questions--helped us decide where to put plants, where we needed more plants, etc. They had some complex fixes to do for my drip line as well and they got it all sorted out and did it in the 3 days they said they would do it. 10/10 would recommend.

We chose Earthworks to landscape our entire yard, and we are very pleased with the results. It was a huge project, and Carter (our Project Manager) and the team worked very hard to finish it on time. When we first contacted Earthworks, we were impressed that Jason spent time in our yard measuring and planning every detail to give us a complete and accurate bid. Carter kept in close contact with us, and was always available to answer our questions and concerns and keep us up to date on the project. Thanks for a job well done!

I recommend Earthworks for your landscaping needs. We had to have a complete redo of everything; new sprinkler system, new patio, sod, tree removal and transplant as well as design and they did not disappoint. Carter was our project manager and he and the entire crew worked tirelessly to ensure we had a sustainable and beautiful result.

We are very impressed with Earthworks! They gave us a quote the same day they came out, while others never got back to us. They were very professional and the quality of work was great! They did a good job of executing the ideas we envisioned for our yard.

I was really impressed by the responsiveness to all my (million) questions. I had my front and back yard completely ripped out and redone and it looks amazing. Everyone I dealt with was knowledgeable and professional.

We hired Earthworks to sod a small section of our backyard, place two new sprinklers and install curbing with bark in the front of the house. Jason was very timely with giving us a quote and the project was worked in a timely manner, with respect to all the rain postponement. Everyone involved was very kind and professional. We would 100% recommend them to others and would use them for future projects.

I received 7 different bids to install a yard for my new home. Earthworks' quote was competitive, but the professionalism was what made me go with them. The quote was done in less than a day when other companies would take a week or more. Their online calendar helped me plan and understand the impact the weather was having on their operations. Emanuel was my Project Manager, and Sam was the job foreman. They were outstanding. Their attention to detail was top notch. After all was said and done, I've had Emanuel call twice and come by to check on everything and make sure I was happy. This personal touch AFTER the bill was paid in full was amazing. You can tell they actually care about their Customers and not just the money. While I did get lower quotes (not by much) for the same project, I went with Earthworks due to Estimator Jason's professionalism, Office Manager Marissa's responsiveness, and the recommendation of my neighbors that used them a few years ago. I am so glad I did! I strongly recommend this Company for any job.

I am very happy with the landscaping services that I had Earthworks perform for me. I had an estimate for several things and decided to start with adding curbing. Once I decided to proceed, it was only a short time until the project was complete. Looks great! Would definitely recommend Earthworks Landscaping.

Earthworks just finished landscaping our backyard, including laying the sprinkler and enlarging our concrete patio pad. The work is amazing, and the attention to detail is top notch. They were excellent at updating on their timeline (due to needing to shift due to the weather). They were also the most competitive bid our of the 5 other companies we had bid. I would recommend them without hesitation to anyone who asks.

We would definitely recommend this company. They did excellent work in a short period of time. The crew was great especially Emanuel. We appreciated his attention to detail. He made sure we were happy with each stage of the installations and kept us up to date on when things were going to happen. Everything turned out exactly as we had hoped! We will definitely give them a call for our future landscaping needs.

Earthworks was phenomenal to work with. Their attention to detail and professionalism is unmatched. Emmanuel and his team were fantastic to work with. They completed a large project for our new home including sprinkler systems, grading of the lot, extensive concrete work, planted over 175 trees, shrubs, perennials, completed areas of dryscape and much more. We would highly recommend them to anyone. We couldn't be more pleased 😁

We are very happy with the service and the work that was done to our yard. We had contacted several companies for a bid, and Earthworks responded quickly to my text, sent some out (that actually showed up) and once we got the price within our budget they were able to get us on the schedule within a couple weeks. The work was done quickly and the work crew was very friendly and eager to make sure that we were happy with what was being done. We would recommend using Earthworks they did a great job!
