Domain AquaScapes is a company idea that originated out the the beautiful pacific northwest, Seattle but now serving the best of Northern Virginia. A place we like to call home. A lot of the the water features that have been designed is inspired by the beautiful cascading falls based out of the Olympic region of Washington state. Although our inspiration originates from there, we have expanded our builds and designs to custom fit our customers hear in the beautiful DMV/NOVA, Northern Virginia area.
We specialize in any form of landscape. from retaining walls, irrigation, stone work, raised garden beds, mulching, pruning, even garden design.
Our driving passion behind this business is based off our pride that we take in our water features. such as ponds, backyard waterfalls, custom fountains, and so much more.
Landscape lighting is a beautiful way to illuminate some of the properties features and accentuate the ambiance of your landscape. a great way to stand out and express your domain.
Custom Natural Rock Fountains
These are just a few of our fountains that we have designed. They make for a very peaceful setting in your living room or even on your back patio without having to go through a large installation process. These truly are the definition of custom. The rocks have been hand picked out of such places as Tazewell VA, Bristol TN, War WVA , and Great Falls VA. Just to name a few. There are many different bases, rock styles, lights, plants, and designs to choose from. Prices will vary depending on all materials needed to complete the job, size of fountain, etc.
Custom Fire Pits
This project was a fire pit that is custom designed to fit around a solo smokeless fire pit. The specs on this was to make it look beautiful with the decor but also not to make it a permanent fixture. Unlike other fire pit designs, it had to be moveable. Also due to the design of the solo firepit it required air flow to be pulled from the bottom of the feature. So the 4 inch gap at the bottom was a must.. And one of the most important parts of this project was to coat the interior with a high heat epoxy. This custom design runs from $800 and up depending on the materials you want. This is not a piece that you will find anywhere else and the sheer elegance it brings to any atmosphere will be noticed.
Stone Garden Beds
Project steps of new bed/path design
Step one of any project is to identify any underground utilities such as gas, electric, sprinkler lines, and internet cable to make sure none of them get disturbed through out our process of your new design. After that we will be able to walk through with you and get a better understanding of the layout and design you want.
Step two of this design required us to move the grass line back to accommodate the costumers custom design of this project. Then we proceeded to grade the level of the soil so any water would drain away from the house. Next, we removed all stones and exposed roots to create a smooth surface for the ground cloth also known as weed fabric. Then we finished up with digging the holes for the new plant installations.
Step three we laid the weed fabric and staked it down. Afterwards, we installed the desired plants which consisted of five Box Woods, two of them ornamental, and three Laurels. Next step was to lay the paver steps which was leveled and set in place with leveling sand.
Last step was to bring in the desired materials which was Black Tripple Shredded Mulch and 3/4 Inch River Jack stone. We then proceeded to shape the bed to the customers desired design. The best part about this design is the low maintenance due to the weed fabric. This will prevent any future weeds. Also the plants that were selected are easy to maintain and will stay green and thrive all year.
Same Project Different Angle
This was a clean out of one of the waterfalls on one of our jobs. The customer wanted all debris, roots and moss to be removed from this feature. Then restack some of the rocks to fill in the bare areas. In order to complete this task, we had shut the pump off to stop the flow of water.
In the photo below was a fountain repair. The bottom of the structure had some cracks to where the fountain would not hold water. For this repair we resealed the entire bottom with the proper products to ensure it will hold water for seasons to come.
In this photo below we were called out because the fountain was not flowing at its designed rate. It was just trickling down the rocks and did not provide the "glass wall" effect that you see in the picture. Threw out our extensive inspection we were able to identify the issue and correct it. Not only threw out our inspections do we identify the issue at hand but we also we look for the overall integrity of the components within the feature to make sure it is to stay opperational for years to come
Video of repair above
Below is a video of another water wall that was experiencing flow issues. Notice how the flow is sporadic and not providing the "glass sheet effect".
The video below is after the repair to the spillway. notice how we had to deconstruct the wall in order to service the spill way. After it was all said and done it now has such a beautiful flow.
Just a line replacement on this one. The hose that runs from the pump to the top of the fountain was cracked and deteriorating and was not able to push water all the way to the top. "Good as new!"
