Rockaway creates beautiful custom water features for residential and commercial clients throughout Northeast Florida. Our client in Atlantic Beach selected Rockaway to design and install front and backyard landscaping and an Aquascape stacked slate sphere water feature.
A trellis in the front yard was retrofitted with increased planting space to accommodate jasmine at the base to climb and cover in the next few years. Cold-damaged hibiscus was replaced. Additional plantings in the front yard include pineapple guava, drift roses, and an orange bird of paradise. A weeping bottle brush and hibiscus were added in the backyard.
An Aquascape stacked slate sphere water feature was installed with a pump that recirculates water from an in-ground basin covered with decorative gravel. A light is installed at the top of the stacked slate sphere and around the perimeter of the water feature. Liriope were planted to hide the light fixtures from the viewing areas in the yard and on the homeowners’ porch.
Atlantic Beach, Florida homeowner Sharon shares her satisfaction from the experience of working with Rockaway Landscape Designer David Holloway. “I already had a lovely yard I just wanted to make it extra special,” Sharon said. “And I was so pleased with David’s professionalism and he was right on time to meet with me. He had wonderful suggestions for making my yard a showplace, which it is now.”
“I was especially pleased that he thought of adding the water feature, which I enjoy so much and I could not have been happier with the guys. They came exactly on the day they were supposed to, worked so hard all day and made everything beautiful. I just could not be happier and I love my yard. I spend a lot of time here now and I’m very happy with it. So I would highly recommend the guys at Rockaway. They are wonderful.”
