Water Features Add Serenity, Interest to Landscape

By in Water Landscaping

­A beautifully landscaped yard is your personal getaway – a place to shed the stresses of a long day, a gathering place for family and friends, and a habitat for wildlife. The perfect light and the eye-pleasing colors of grasses and flowers calm and soothe. Now imagine the soft notes of falling water or the playful gurgle of koi in a pristine pond. What better way to indulge all the senses on a relaxing evening? And going out your door is as far as you have to travel.

Incorporating a well-built water feature not only increases the pleasure you take from sitting outside, it also adds interest to your landscape and can add value to your home.  The design and function of water features are as limitless as your imagination.

Water features can create their own ecosystem, increasing oxygen and algae which is eaten by koi who in turn provide fertilizer to plants. Other wildlife, such as frogs and birds, will be drawn to the water, making the feature an endless source of interest. Both children and adults benefit from the educational value of having an aquatic habitat at their fingertips.

Water features bring “water-front property” to you. They provide an excellent backdrop for family barbecues or for those quiet times when you need to unwind. A water feature is a natural gathering place as well as a natural meditation spot.

Whether you want to enhance the beauty of your landscape, create a meeting place for family and friends, provide a natural habitat for wildlife or carve out your own personal paradise, a water feature is the solution. An experienced landscape team can help you determine the best fit for you and your yard, no matter how large or small.
