As is seen with this particular Glendale landscaping courtyard design’s water feature, sometimes the simplest design provides the greatest decorative appeal. While the lines in the stone masonry construction are rather contemporary, the overall feeling here is timeless and could have been there for a century.
An informal composure covered in Arizona flagstone mosaic, the square pillars at two different heights do several things to this water feature’s appeal. Visually, the add dimension and interest to the shaping of the courtyard fountain. They also change the tone of the falling water sound. The farther water falls, as well as the speed it moves at has much to do with the music a water feature creates – whether it’s done as natural looking waterfalls, or a stylized fountain. Here, the addition of spilling over terracotta pots adds tons of interest and really does a lot to put more emphasis on the visual appeal it adds to this shady courtyard design.
