5 of the Best Water Fountain Installers in Winnipeg

Did you know that back then, water fountains were fictional creations believed to gift people with immortality, bring back the dead to life, and serve as sources of life for civilisations?

Today, they’re perfect features that highlight landscaped areas and add curb appeal to any property.

If you’re looking for reliable builders of water fountains, then this article is for you. We looked into some popular water fountain installers in Winnipeg, then reviewed and listed the best ones here.

How much does it cost to have a water fountain installed?

In North America, having a water fountain installed can cost anywhere from $1,600 up to $4,900. 

On top of that, homeowners will also need to consider the size and material of the fountain, as well as the type of water fountain to be built.

Take a look at this table below on the water fountain variations available and how much they’ll cost on average:

TYPE OF FOUNTAINMATERIALAVERAGE PRICE RANGE
BirdbathVaried$195 – $390
Freestanding tieredResin$195 – $650
Freestanding wallConcrete or resin$325 – $1,300 (concrete); Starts at $650 (resin)
Wall-hungConcrete$780 – $1,560

Besides these prices, clients also need to consider workers’ fees, which may go up to $65 per hour, and excavation costs that may amount to $450 per fountain.

Selecting the best water fountain installers in Winnipeg

In reviewing the best water fountain installers in Winnipeg, we considered the following companies based on these factors:

Types of Water Fountains – Does the installer work on more than one kind of water fountain?
Quality of Installation – How is the quality of the water fountain? Is it installed properly?
Installer/Contractor – Are the contractors competent and well-versed in building and maintaining water fountains? Are they punctual and responsive to clients?
Customer Satisfaction – Were the clients pleased with the water fountain project overall? Will they hire the same installer for other landscaping work?

The Bulger Brothers are well-known landscapers that specialise in modern, xeriscape, and Japanese zen landscaping.

What we love about this installer is that it does 3D renditions of the client’s request first, then propose materials that they feel are best suited for the brief.

Clients may also mention their budget, and the landscaper brothers will recommend which designs and services will fit the clients’ suggested quote.

This service is a great way to visualise the final look after the fountains and other landscaped elements have been installed.

Apart from Japanese zen-style water features, we like that the Bulger Brothers also does other water fountain types, namely birdbaths, waterfalls, tiered, and wall-hung.

Customers may also have fountains with ponds constructed should they prefer to keep fish and aquatic plants in their yard.

A downside though is that the company’s fountain designs are limited to zen-inspired styles. 

While these may work with many contemporary setups, other clients may prefer fountain designs other than Oriental-inspired ones.

Another drawback we found is that this installer currently only works on small to medium water fountains. 

So, if you’re looking for large water features similar to what bigger spaces and parks have, then this might not be the right company for you.

That said, we still recommend the Bulger Brothers for landscaping your yard and installing Oriental-style water fountains.

Pros

  • Offers 3D design services
  • Does more than one type of water features

Cons

  • Mainly works on small to medium fountains
  • Most fountain styles are zen-inspired

On top of landscaping and building patios and decks, B. Rocke Landscaping also designs and installs water fountains.

We checked its inventory and are pleased that it does waterfalls, wall-hung, tiered, and bowl-like fountains.

A strong point of this landscaper is that it offers custom-made fountains that we think are great for introducing unique shapes and textures into your garden. 

What we love about the company is that it offers free consultation services for those who want professional advice on which fountain designs are best for their yard layouts.

Clients may avail of the 3D design process where landscape experts will show visual representations of their gardens.

Note that the 3D design services aren’t free. Prices depend on the project’s complexity and how long the rendition will take–upon checking, an additional $200 per hour will be needed for design processes that will exceed six hours. 

Despite the hefty price tag, we think the process gives clients a more detailed look of their outdoors with the fountains placed.

We were just a bit iffy about reports about the workers doing the wrong or initial landscape designs instead of the final layouts agreed upon by the clients.

We were also bummed about some of the workers being tardy to work, hence the reports on some project delays.

On a brighter note, we appreciate the company’s management for apologising for these errors and improving its design and project process to avoid late starts and finishes.

Pros

  • Works on various water fountain styles
  • Provides free consultation services

Cons

  • Reports on workers doing the wrong landscape layouts
  • Some instances of tardiness

Customer Reviews

Competent staff that are accountable and pleasant to work with

“We had B Rocke complete the design and landscaping in our backyard this summer/fall. Jillian was wonderful to work with and very accommodating to our ideas. We really liked the crew that came to do the actual landscaping work – very pleasant, skilled, and helpful. There were a few occasions where we needed to correct errors, such as a mound of earth in the middle of our yard as on the design (which was incorrect). However, because the team checked in very often we were easily able to correct these things.” – Kristina Swain

Efficient from start to finish

“This summer, we completed our backyard and fencing with B. Rocke Landscaping. It was my third time working with them over the years. Their excellent work and professionalism are what keep bringing me back. From start to finish, their attention to detail and the suggestions they provide were top-notch. Any questions or concerns were responded to in a timely fashion. Even items that I did not notice were brought to my attention and remedied right away. Overall, fantastic work, the team was a joy to work with. I cannot wait until next summer again to continue enjoying my newly completed backyard.” – Howard Chang

Ful-Flo Industries is known for building commercial water fountains and irrigation systems. It has provided water features for establishments within Winnipeg and Ontario.

Upon checking, the company does various water fountain designs, ranging from tiered to bowl-shaped varieties. 

Our personal favourites are the water fountains featuring music and lights that you see in water parks and shopping centres.

Aside from building impressive water features, Ful-Flo also provides aeration systems for artificial ponds and waterfalls, as well as water fountains housing fish.

So, if you plan to use your water fountain as a habitat for koi, goldfish, and carp, you can also avail of this service.

A strong point of Ful-Flo Industries is that it does repairs and maintenance work on its fountains and irrigation systems, services that aren’t offered by other fountain installers.

Note that this company mainly works on commercial water fountains. While it installs lawn sprinklers for both residential and commercial properties, most of its fountain designs are intended for public spaces.

Another limitation we found is that majority of its fountains are spray or shooting types, the ones installed in large pools or underneath the ground.

Still, we recommend Ful-Flo Industries to anyone looking for fancy shooting fountains that amplify their business’ curb appeal.

Pros

  • Impressive fountain design selection
  • Builds aeration systems
  • Provides fountain maintenance services

Cons

  • Mainly works on commercial water fountains
  • Most fountains are spray/shooting types

Customer Reviews

Always have the product needed, know how it works, and can provide advice and options. Great place to rely on to keep my system functioning properly and my yard looking great.” – Curt Smith

Excellent customer service for over 20 years

“Love this company. Been a customer for over 20 years and have always been treated excellently!! There are not too many places that look after their customers like they do! The best of the best!!!” – Blair Fright

Lawn N’ Order is known mostly for landscaping turfs and building patios, but it is also notable for designing and installing waterfall-type fountains.

It’s also worth noting that this installer does aerators for its water fountains. This service will be useful in case you decide to turn your water feature into a suitable habitat for fish and tortoises, as well as aquatic plants such as water lilies and lotuses.

Another thing we love about this landscaper is that it offers maintenance services during the summer and winter. 

They can clean your water fountain, as well as remove weeds, rearrange plants, and remove snow from around the waterfall area.

Perhaps a downside to its winter maintenance services is that it currently doesn’t offer winterising of water fountains and ponds. 

This can be inconvenient as you’ll have to do this step to protect your waterfall feature from damages caused by icy water and snowy weather.

Another drawback we’re a bit bummed about is that customers will need to avail themselves of Lawn N’ Order’s maintenance programmes in order to call for emergency services in the summer and winter.

These plans have starting prices of $175 a month, which is quite costly considering many landscaping services within Canada charge as low as $90 a month for something similar.

Pros

  • Also installs aerators
  • Offers maintenance services in the summer and winter

Cons

  • Winter services do not include winterising fountains
  • Pricey maintenance programmes

Customer Reviews

Competent workers that give services worth paying for.

“I have had Jeff and his crew do a few jobs for me the past couple of years. Good attention to detail. Competitive pricing, and completed the work when promised. I will hire Lawn ‘N’ Order the next I need work done. 100%” – Tom Dyck

Brilliant services every time!

This is the third time I’ve ordered from here and brilliant service each time. From requesting the delivery on a different date to being informed when the order was shipped. The quality of the products are fabulous and at reasonable prices. Will definitely be using it again. – Sarah McGuire

Despite being located on the outskirts of Winnipeg, we still think Shelmerdine Garden Centre is worth visiting as it carries several fountain designs great for the outdoors and maybe even indoors.

We looked into its fountain selection and found that the store offers tiered, cascading, square-, and bowl-shaped fountains, as well as birdbaths. 

We’re also pleased that the centre has Oriental-style fountain designs perfect for zen-inspired landscapes.

In case you’re bummed about the travel time, then we suggest exploring the garden centre’s online store. What we love about its online shop is that it is well-categorised, making it easy to find the water fountain you prefer. 

The store also offers complementary statues and decor pieces to dress up your water feature, as well as extra pumps and maintenance kits to keep your fountain’s water clean and algae-free.

We also appreciate the company for making it convenient for clients to book delivery and installation services after they’ve checked out their purchased items.

On the downside, Shelmerdine’s fountain selection is quite expensive, with the most affordable item priced at around $250.

We’re also slightly bummed that installation fees are charged separately, which entails additional costs for clients.

We also wish that the store would offer fountain repair services, so that customers can just get in touch with one company for all of their water fountain service needs.

Pros

  • Carries many water fountain designs
  • Has an online store

Cons

  • Pricey fountain selection
  • Does not offer repair services

Customer Reviews

Best greenhouse in Winnipeg

“My boyfriend and I went for the first time and we LOVED it. Store layout is easy and pleasing to follow and you get a good view of everything at once. Enormous amount of plants!  Compare to one of the greenhouse in st.mary it was boxed up with rooms and difficult to follow. Also found my dream plant there! Excited to visit again soon.” – Yanchi Liu
