Course Description: The gentle sound water brings to a project can add many favorable experiences. From children laughing in a splashed to the calming sound of water flowing, the ambience can be appealing to add to a design. However, when designing water features into a project, many design processes need to be considered. Through this course, we will show what goes on behind the scenes of many different types of water features. We will discuss how to plan for your design and what considerations need to be remembered. By the end of the course, the attendees will have an understanding of the different types of water features, what design elements go into features, and a rough understanding of water feature budgeting.
