3 of the Top Kid-Friendly Water Features for the Backyard

Kids love playing with water, so what better way to keep them entertained than adding kid-friendly water features to a backyard or pool landscape?  Some of the best pool water features are tried and true, and now more than ever there are ways to put a modern spin on them while also being able to keep a classy and chic backyard atmosphere.  


Slides.  Integrating a slide into the landscape of a pool is a beautiful way to provide children with a fun and enticing water experience.  Water slides come in a variety of sizes which can be presented within the landscaping of a pool, whether it be tiles, rocks, or other landscaping.  A slide with a gentle curve can offer a safer, slower speed, but for kids who love a fast drop into the swimming pool, a straight slide is the way to go. 


Diving Boards.  Diving boards have changed over the years, evolving into higher end water features that come in a variety of unique shapes and natural colors.  They are still some of the most exciting pool water features for children who love to splash and swim.  And for parents who would rather not look at a diving board that stands out from the rest of the pool, a unique board can be designed to fit in with the character of the pool design. 


Splash Pads.  A splash pad is essentially a unique type of water playground which excites children of any age.  The non-slip surface and lack of standing water make this backyard water feature a safe and fun place to cool down on a hot summer day.  Streams of water shower, mist, or shoot from the various nozzles creating an inviting and interactive experience that kids love.  A splash pad can keep kids entertained for hours, right in the backyard.
