The Natural Elegance of Fire and Water Features

Close your eyes for a moment and think about the most luxurious resorts, spas, and tropical islands that you can imagine. Maybe you imagine the images of these places you’ve seen on TV or in movies. Perhaps you’ve been lucky enough to visit such a paradise in person. You likely see a large, sparkling, well-lit pool with palm trees, foliage, and dramatic lights. Fire features and water bowls surround the pool.

The good news is that you don’t need to visit a resort to experience the beautiful and relaxing atmosphere you would find at a high-end resort. With fire features and water bowls, you can create this look and experience in your own backyard. Here are some of the ways you can create an inviting and luxurious environment with fire and water bowls.

Torches

Quality Torches add an exotic element to your backyard with a lively flickering flame and stainless-steel construction. The lantern heads vary from classic lantern to nature-inspired floral and even gothic styles. Torches are great as an accent for fans of fire since you can place them around your yard and decorate the entire outdoor area in flames. The ambient heat provided will add an extra dimension to your backyard aesthetic.

Scuppers

Copper Scuppers are water features that provide a relaxing sheet of water that flows into your pool. They double in functionality because they help circulate your water and keep it fresh. These heavy gauge copper water features will “patina” over time as oxidation occurs and the copper reacts to the elements. It produces a series of gorgeous colors that build up in order to protect the copper.

Design Timing

It’s never too late to install a fire or water feature. When you’re renovating your backyard or building a new swimming pool, it’s a great time to add fire and water features, but if you didn’t realize you had this option before installing your pool, it’s not too late! You can still add fire features and water bowls to your existing pool to create that luxurious spa and resort atmosphere.

Bring Vacation Luxury to Your Backyard

When you create a spa or resort atmosphere in your backyard, vacations won’t seem as appealing anymore. After all, you’ll be able to walk out the backdoor and step into paradise! And given the amount of luxury these features will add to your backyard pool and landscaping, they are a great way to enhance your outdoor environment and transform it into the place where you want to spend your time.
