Grand Expectations   

Approaching the renovation of an historic fountain set over an existing, untouchable structure is daunting enough.  But it gets tougher, write J. Wickham Zimmerman and Chris Roy, when the original documentation is sketchy and you have no choice but to figure out how to proceed.   [more]

Backyard Detailing

Poolside waterfeatures are awesome, says Bruce Riley, filling an area with sound and controlling key views into and out of the yard and around the water.  Here's a look at ways to assess what clients need from these details -- and address a few issues they might not anticipate.   [more]

Powerful Grounds        

It's often said that what you don't know can hurt you -- and that's seldom truer than when the unknown in question has to do with the soil and geologic conditions that underlie watershapes.  On hillsides in particular but even on certain flatlands, say prominent engineering geologists Larry Parmelee and Larry Schick, accommodating the forces at work beneath the surface is critical for professionals working to maximize the integrity and longevity of their installations.

Making a Splash
in the Marketplace 

If you design and/or build pools, spas, fountains, ponds, streams, waterfalls or other forms of contained, controlled water, you have a proven ability to create projects of great beauty. But how do you spread the word about your skills and talents to those who might want you to help them make water part of their daily lives? 

The WaterShapes Professional Network can help you there. We've built a web site where dozens of designers and builders of watershapes of all types participate as an Internet collective -- a grouped entity large enough and interrelated in ways that make search engines treat all participants with respect. So if it's a strong (or even just a stronger) web presence you're after, please do take a look and get involved.

On a busy corner in downtown Palm Springs, Calif., stands an unusual sculpture that artfully moves water through the hot desert air.  The work of New York sculptor David Curt Morris, 'The Rainmaker' was commissioned by community leaders who hoped the fountain would become a landmark celebrating the life-giving power of water in the driest of climates while providing passersby with a place to cool off, relax and play.

These days, the Internet is the information resource of choice for those looking for goods and services.  But it's tough for an individual business to capture attention and interest amid the bewildering array of options facing consumers as they try to find ways to make water part of their home or working lives.

That's why we started the WaterShapes Professional Network -- a place consumers are using to get basic information about pool, pond and fountain designers and builders before they start making direct phone calls to arrange for site visits and bids.  It's a new way of making initial contacts and getting in the game.

When homeowners or facility managers start looking for watershapers to help them realize their ambitions and dreams, where do they start?  Some are fortunate enough to have business contacts or friends who can refer them to reliable professionals.  But these days, many start their searching on the Internet -- a great but indiscriminate resource filled with blind alleys, dead ends and sometimes unreliable information.
