Revamp your backyard this summer and create a peaceful retreat by integrating water elements with your pergola. The tranquil melodies of flowing water can establish a calm environment, ideal for unwinding and rejuvenation. This article will delve into diverse concepts that incorporate fountains, ponds or mini cascades near your pergola while providing recommendations on the perfect designs to complement each feature.


Standalone fountains offer great versatility and can seamlessly blend into any outdoor area. By placing a stunning stone or ceramic fountain beside your pergola, you instantly infuse an air of refinement while providing the tranquil melody of water flow for ultimate relaxation. Lusxhade's robust structure with its retractable cover creates an ideal setting to showcase a standalone fountain that even has built-in ambient lights perfect for evening enhancements.

If you are constrained by space, contemplate mounting a wall fountain alongside your pergola. Wall fountains conserve space and furnish an elegant, upright water characteristic. For a frugal and utilitarian preference, Visualize's personalized add-ons along with its enclosed framework may smoothly blend in to feature a wall fountain. The modifiable blades facilitate regulation of sunlight and air circulation to intensify the serene ambiance produced by the aquatic aspect.


A beautiful koi pond can enhance the elegance and peace of your yard. Position it adjacent to your pergola for a delightful view of vibrant fish swimming amidst gentle water movements. The Skyview is an apt choice for individuals who desire unobstructed surroundings, as it pairs perfectly with a koi pond. Its versatile blades easily transform into skylights, providing natural light that illuminates both the pool and sky, creating an enchanting interplay between them both.

A serene and elegant water feature, the reflecting pond embodies a minimalist approach. The tranquil stillness of its waters reflects both sky and landscape for an undeniably peaceful visual effect. When paired with the sleek aluminum structure of Uptrack - complete with retractable cover - this solid design brings together pergola and pond to create one cohesive outdoor haven that exudes calm serenity.

Small Waterfalls

Adding cascading waterfalls to your outdoor space brings a dynamic element with the pleasing sound of falling water. Whether integrated into a rock garden or pond, these falls elevate visual appeal. Consider using Visualize for this addition as it offers total protection and various customization options- perfect for creating an ideal setting that enhances sensory experiences via natural air recirculation and brightness adjustment abilities.

Tiered waterfalls on the other hand, offer a striking visual display and produce a relaxing sound. These water features can be tailored to cascade into either a small basin or pond. The Luxshade pergola, known for its durable composition and adjustable lighting choices, complements the beauty of such waterfalls impeccably. Its built-in lights effectively illuminate every tier producing an enchanting spectacle at night time!
