If you need an attention-getter in the backyard, you can't do any better than a feature boasting fire and water.

With these elements, you can think big or small. If the family would like something intimate, a cozy fire and water bowl next to the spa will be a perfect fit. For those with a grander vision, you can create a miniature volcano with flames billowing at the top and water spilling down the sides, or a long fire trough in front of a sleek water wall.

Separate the fire and water. Some designers and homeowners want to emulate resort-type features that shoot fire directly out of the water.

Installations of this type may be fine when designed for a resort by a specialty fire consultant. But experts caution against trying to do this in a backyard—particularly when working with remote-controlled systems.

“It goes against code, typically with the electrical and the water,” says Kevin Doud, CEO of manufacturer Grand Effects in Irvine, Calif. “And we feel it's very prone to maintenance issues, with having the electronics in the water.”
