“So Your Client Wants a Water Feature,” was developed to provide simple guidelines to Landscape Architectures when they are presented with the request to have a Water Feature (Architectural Water Fountain, Interactive Water Fountain, Splash Pad) located within one of their projects. Landscape Architects can provide the water feature designer with more information concerning what the client wants if they understand what information the designer will need to complete the design of the fountain.
