Soothing at an Elemental Level: Water Features from Cameo Pools

“The sound of moving water moves the human spirit in ways that cannot be compared to any other medium,” say the experts at Phoenix, Arizona’s Cameo Pools. They go on to say, “Reflect on the many forms water takes in nature — the rushing of waves on a beach, the trickling of a brook, the patter of rain….and the sound of it is even known to put crying babies to sleep.” So it’s small wonder that, in this stressful world, people so enjoy fountains, cascades, and other water features that add so much to the enjoyment of their back yards and other outdoor spaces. The experts at Cameo indicate that one of their more popular features is called “Sheer Descent,” a waterfall that can be anywhere from 8 inches to 8 feet wide — and customizable.

Picture yourself immersed in a spa from which cascades fall gently into a larger pool…or on the patio gazing at an up-lighted cascade over native rock. Water can fall in a sheet (or several) from edges of a spa, be a series of waterspouts that arc over the pool and spa area, ripple like a natural waterfall, or even come down in droplets for a “spring shower” at any time of year. And don’t forget soothing sounds as well: babbling brooks, rushing rivers, lapping waves, or simple almost-silent bubbling that sends a set of ripples toward over the surface toward the edge. Combine the falls with waterslides (great for the kids), fire bowls, stone or boulder walls — and you’ll have the perfect haven for your own special brand of relaxation.
