The owners of this deck enjoy a view of a meandering stream that spills into a pond by their lower level patio. A wooden bridge invites you to sit a spell and dangle your toes in the water.
Is this someone's backyard or a vacation resort? Yep, it's a backyard allright!
This deck wraps around the house and leads to a stone path that follows the stream along the back of the house. And the best part? There's no lawn to mow!
Isn't this the perfect spot for a morning cup o' coffee or a fruity glass of wine in the evening? The waterfall creates the added dimension of soothing sounds.
Here's a switch. This deck is at the front of the house with a beautiful, reflective pond to welcome visitors.
A gentle stream flows alongside the shady deck while a brass boy spitter provides an element of whimsy for those who linger and admire the scenery.
Who wouldn't love this floating deck overlooking a waterfall that cascades into a pebble beach? The children love hauling their pails and shovels to play in the water and gravel.
A balcony and lower deck provide great views of this water garden. Relax on the patio furniture or take a trip across the stepping stones to see the fish up close.
Decks provide great feeding spots for fish. Koi will learn to eat food right from your hand.
A deck by the house wasn't enough for these lucky pond owners. A brick patio extends from the deck to a wooden bridge that takes you further back into the yard for more water garden delights.
A shady spot on the deck provides cool relief on hot summer days, while the pond helps to lower the temperature.
So if you've got a deck that overlooks your lawn and all you see is grass and a few flowers ... why not turn it into waterfront property by installing a water garden or waterfall of your very own? You won't regret it!
