Add Movement and Serenity with Water Features

Published on: March 1, 2012

Serenity fountains are a hot item for indoor décor right now. They are small perpetual fountains that can add the real sound of running water to your bedroom, den or office. They’re called serenity fountains because the soft sound of trickling water has a soothing and calming affect for most people. The same is true of outdoor water features. In addition to the soothing sound that comes with streams, fountains, ponds and waterfalls, these water features also add a sense of movement and sparkle to a landscape.

With the aid of circulating pumps, you’ll find that just about any type of water feature can be created in most any location. You can have a very natural looking stream bed that flows over granite slabs or through small boulders to create the lovely look and sound of a small water fall and a babbling brook. You can create a koi pond with a fringe of flowers to create a rainbow of colors reflected off the pond’s surface.

A professional landscaper will be able to install these features with a very natural setting. They will also generally offer ongoing maintenance service for these water features to ensure that the water is kept algae free and the circulating pumps are kept running at peak performance. As with your sprinkler system, your water features will require drainage and preparation for cold weather seasons when there is a potential for freezing; another service that can usually be fulfilled by your landscaping contractor.

To make your landscape stand out beyond the ordinary, add the calming beauty of a water feature. Your neighbors will be green with envy.
