Top Water Features related questions

Water features can quickly elevate the vibe in your garden. Nature will feel closer and more intertwined with your home. You may also start seeing family or friends spending more time in the area. That’s a priceless benefit for you! As to practical benefits, a properly constructed water feature installation can increase the value of your property!

The maintenance for your water feature depends on whether the water is stagnant or there’s a flow-through. Stagnant water features will need you to drain and refill now and then to avoid waste buildup and contamination. If this is too taxing for you, a Tasker can take care of cleaning and maintaining water features in your property, whether it be a regular pool or a man-made pond.

This depends on how big the water feature is and how many issues there are. Other factors like frequency of maintenance, proximity to natural pollutants, how old the water feature is, and more can affect the needed servicing. For example, a filter replacement for a pool can take an hour or two. However, repairing leaks may take a few days, depending on the severity of the damage.

There are plenty of water feature contractors here on Airtasker, but selecting the best means differently for everyone. You may want to look at how much they charge, the warranties they offer, how close they are to your location, and their expertise in the particular water feature you want to build. Feel free to ask for their sample work via our secure in-platform messaging feature.

There are so many types that you can have constructed in your property, but we suggest looking at the water features near you! Some areas are an ideal space for ponds and hydroponics, while terrains are perfect for brooks, streams, and small rivers. You can also speak with a local Tasker to know the usual types near you!

Airtasker has a secure payment process called Airtasker Pay. Connect your credit or debit card to your Airtasker account. Once you accept an offer for a task, Airtasker will charge the fee to your card and hold it until the project has been completed. After you’ve confirmed that your Tasker finished the task, we’ll then release the payment to them. It’s secure and hassle-free for both parties!

What do water features services include?

Having a water feature built or developed inside your property can be time-consuming and confusing! It’s a good thing Airtasker has an easy and efficient system for finding a water feature contractor near you. With our platform, getting started only takes a few taps on your phone or computer. Find everything from talented landscaping artists to skilled handymen to build your dream water feature for your property! Still unsure how to get your project construction rolling? Here are a few more details to help you:

Geodetic surveying

If you’re starting with an undeveloped property, you may want to hire a geodetic engineer first to better understand your land’s bounds and metes. Take note that natural water features are also included in your property. You may have heard the term riparian rights, which means you can use the water as long as it doesn’t harm the other owners that also have the same rights. A geodetic engineer can help you understand that better before starting your project. These rights also differ if you have a flowing water source like a river or a stagnant one like ponds.

Landscape design

Your chosen water feature shouldn’t stick out in your property like a sore thumb. A beautiful outdoor design can be achieved with a professional landscape designer. There’s also a lot of science involved here to determine what kind of flora and fauna will thrive in the soil and water supply in your yard. A landscape designer may even be able to give you insight into how best to care for your lawn, plants, and water features without overly exhausting yourself and your pocket.

Building and construction

Once you’re settled with the design, you can hire builders to get started on the digging. The scope of work will depend on whether you’re simply improving an existing natural water source or you intend to build a man-made waterfall. Some Taskers have a lot of experience working with soil, cement, and other foundations for water features.

Maintenance and repair

Having a water feature in your property requires consistent servicing to maintain cleanliness and address minor damages before they worsen. This also varies depending on the type of water features, such as ponds, pools, cultivation gardens, springs, and fountains. Maintaining a garden pond will most likely need regular waste removal and algae treatments, while the upkeep of a hydroponics farm will be more labor-intensive.

 All these tasks can be handled by one or several Taskers, depending on your preference. No matter what it is you need for your water feature, you can simply post a task so you can get more done!
