Add the Tranquility of a Water Feature to Your Outdoor Space

Published on: September 21, 2016

You don’t need to pay for waterfront property to enjoy the tranquility of water at your home. Water features are an affordable way to bring the comforting sound and sight of water to your outdoor space. There are many options, big and small, when it comes to water features that can enhance your home’s aesthetic appeal while creating your own private oasis. Here are some ideas:

  • Water garden. Want to bring those beautiful water plants to your backyard? Consider a water garden with a variety of lily pads, ferns and other water plants that need an aquatic setting to grow.
  • Koi ponds. Create a living eco-system in your yard with a koi pond full of brightly colored fish. There is something peaceful about watching these beauties swim, like a natural aquarium in your outdoor space.
  • Waterfalls. The gurgling and splashing sounds of a waterfall is the ultimate in water features for your home. You can choose to incorporate a waterfall with another water feature such as a koi pond or use a pondless waterfall.
  • Bubbling urns. Even yards with very little space can have the added beauty of a water feature with bubbling urns. These recirculating water features come in a wide variety of sizes, shapes and designs that can add the sound and sight of water to any space.

There are other water features that can also be wonderful additions to your yard, such as fountainscapes, potted water gardens and advanced water ponds. Talk to your local landscaper that specializes in water feature installation to find the perfect way to add the tranquility of water to your outdoor living area.
