Both fire and water features deliver the tremendous wow factor to landscaping projects—and now, Aquascape, Inc., has found a way to combine them. An auto-ignite flame now accompanies Aquascape fountain toppers for an impressive fire/water feature.
One such option is the Fire and Water Spillway Bowl featuring a flame center with water pouring through a spout. A more natural-looking option, the Fire and Water Stacked Slate Sphere features cascading water paired with flames from a 12-inch stainless steel burner ring.
Aquascape also offers the opportunity to add fire to its basalt columns using the Fire and Water 3-Piece Basalt Torch System. This includes three fire and water torches that can be installed into the top of any existing or new basalt column.
