Owner David Hetrick has been working on water features including pond, waterfall and fountain designs since the mid 1980s, but his passion for water goes back as long as he can remember. From fly-fishing, to canoeing, to whitewater kayaking, his favorite hobbies have given him an appreciation for both the sound and movement of water, so it’s no surprise that pond, waterfall, fountain and other water feature designs are often incorporated as a central highlight of Exterior Concepts’ outdoor designs.
At Exterior Concepts, we like to appeal to as many of the senses as possible with our designs, and water is not only a pleasing visual element, but it also brings a soothing sound into the space. Water also helps direct the flow of energy. When we design a space with pond, waterfall, fountain or other water feature designs, we direct water toward each of the living spaces we’ve created. There is a flow and balance to any area people spend time in, and every element we add to our designs is there to ultimately increase the energy and enjoyment of the space.
Our water features are not limited to traditional garden pond designs. We use a variety of materials including ornamental concrete, elaborate stonework, and stucco, and we can even incorporate them into wood decks and planters. While people often think a pond should go in the back corner of their yard, we like to design ponds, waterfalls, fountains and other water features in areas of the yard that customers will actually interact with.
Many of our outdoor living spaces also bring additional life to the space by incorporating elements like koi ponds with beautiful fish. We also create pondless water features when you are limited for space.
