Why add a water feature to your backyard?

Published on: September 12, 2018

Are you thinking of changing the landscape design of your backyard? Maybe you should consider adding a water feature. There are many types to choose from that fit every budget and commitment level. Consider what a water feature can do for you.


There is nothing more relaxing than the sound of water.  It can mask the sound of neighbors and street noise to help you release the stresses of the day. Whether you have a large waterfall, or a small trickle, the sound will instantly calm the nerves.

Easy Upkeep

If you have a water feature, there is less yard to maintain. A pond or pondless waterfall with a rock bed takes up room that you no longer have to mow.

Many Styles

There are so many options for every size yard.  Large ponds with waterfalls, small fountains with recycling pumps, trickling pots; all give the sound that you are looking for while fitting in to whatever size area you have.

Water Attracts Nature

Water features invite nature into your yard. Deer can drink from your pond and hummingbirds will sip from your fountain. Yet another relaxing element that water brings.


Backyards with water features are one-of-a-kind. Friends will love to visit your backyard to experience the oasis you have built. They also add value to your home and make it stand out from the other houses on the block.

So no matter what your budget or space constraints are, water features can add value and beauty to your yard. Consider adding one from a local home improvement store or hiring a local landscaper to design a piece for you.
