The sound of moving water can be soothing, making it a perfect addition to your home. Whether it is the rushing sound of a waterfall or the soft gurgle of a babbling brook, water can have a relaxing effect to calm the nerves and evoke a sense of peace. Water features have become popular additions to many homes, offering beauty and tranquility in the privacy of your own backyard.
Choosing A Water Feature For Your Yard
Water features come in a variety of forms, from large garden pools to small stone fountains. Depending on the size and scope of your landscaping design plan, there are many options to choose from when adding a water feature. Some of the most popular include:
- Ponds. A garden pond can be home to fish, frogs and many beautiful water plants, adding natural wonder to your yard, even in the most urban of settings.
- Waterfalls. Pair your pond with a waterfall or create a rock wall with water flowing over it for a dramatic and soothing addition to your yard. If you have a pool, consider adding a waterfall and plants feature to give your pool a tropical effect.
- Fountains. Water fountains and statues can be added to almost any size yard or patio. They are a great way to add artistic flair and the appeal of running water to your home.
Adding the element of water can make an incredible difference to the look and feel of your backyard space. Talk with your professional landscaper about the water feature options that would work best with your home and landscape design.
