Make a Splash with a Water Feature
Every property can be improved with the addition of a water feature. Not only do they make great conversation pieces, but they can help to create a more tranquil setting in your landscape when you need a place to unwind. Depending on the mood you’re after, there are plenty of choices. Consider the following:
With numerous possibilities for adding plants and wildlife, ponds bring a whole new level of interest to the landscape. These versatile water features can be simple or spectacular and come in all shapes and sizes. Keep in mind that if plants or wildlife are to be added, you’ll need to consider the type of habitat they require.
Situated in a pond or self-contained, fountains can provide a simple spray of water or a complex pattern of dancing streams. You can choose from all sorts of designs, including tiered fountains, cascading fountains incorporating statuary, garden wall fountains and even simple pebble fountains.
Moving water is pleasing to both the eye and the ear, and a waterfall can make your property much more relaxing. Preformed waterfalls are available, or customized versions can be constructed using liner fabric, rocks, concrete and a pump.
No matter how big or small your property or your budget, there’s a water feature option to suit every taste. Remember…even something as basic as a birdbath can have a big impact!
