Landscape Water Features
Including or adding landscape water features can completely change the atmosphere of your landscape. Waterfalls and moving water create a peaceful sound that can soothe and refresh. It can also work to help hush surrounding neighborhood or traffic noises. Discover that you don’t need a trip to the lake, the mountains or the beach to enjoy a place on the water when adding a water feature can turn your backyard into a private oasis.
Garden ponds are popular additions for outdoor entertaining areas. With a pond, you can enjoy the sights and sounds of nature with plants, running water and possibly even fish. They can provide tranquility and create a relaxing atmosphere. And what’s more, you can landscape your pond with attractive plants – inside and out! Add fish for a more natural experience. Include pond lights to create twilight and evening ambiance.
The waterfall can be the most beautiful and favored feature in a water garden. If space is lacking in your yard or you have safety and property maintenance concerns with a pond, go pondless! Pondless waterfalls are simply a recirculating waterfall and/or stream without the presence of an actual pond. The water disappears into a hidden reservoir similar to a water fountain – only better! Enjoy the sight and sound of running water without the maintenance of a pond.
Not all water features have to be fish ponds. This is a personal choice when deciding on a water feature. Simply adding a self-contained fountain can create the falling water sound you are looking for.
There’s nothing better than the sight and sound of water in your own backyard. A well designed pond will turn your outdoor space into a vacation-like retreat, where you can get away from the busy world. And not to mention add real value to your home.
