Complete Your Landscape With a Water Feature

March 19, 2020

With spring and summer quickly approaching, landscape enhancement projects are in full swing. While you prepare your landscape for spring and start to plan out your landscape, here are some benefits of adding an eye-catching water feature to your space!

Adding water into your landscape is a great way to bring the sounds of nature into your own space. The stresses of the day to day realities can be washed away with the soothing sounds of water movement. Because a landscape is often more focused on being visually appealing, adding sound to your space allows it to become even more dimensional with a water feature.

Water features are known to attract wildlife such as dragonflies and birds. Including a water feature into your landscape will enhance your local ecosystem. If you choose to include a large naturalistic pond, a great option to enhance the ecosystem is koi fish. Inviting koi fish into your landscape would increase the habitat for other wildlife and entertainment for you and your visitors.

Including water into your landscape doesn’t have to be a large scale project. If you have a smaller space that you are working with, there are great options for pondless water features and fountains that could fit your size requirements and overall needs. For example, including a bubbler fountain provides the water movement sounds for any size space! These can be added to enhance a previously underutilized and appreciated part of your space for it to become a new focal point.

In comparison to larger swimming pools, having a water feature in your space requires little maintenance. A fountain is a great way to provide visual interest and water sounds without having to be extensively monitored and cared for. Adding some landscape lighting is also a great way to enhance your water feature so it can be enjoyed during all hours of the day!

Whether you choose to do something small like a pondless water blade, or if you decide your space is perfect for a large naturalistic pond, water features are a great way to make your space one-of-a-kind and unique to you! Every element of your water feature can be chosen specifically for your desires and also constructed to seamlessly fit within your space.
