After a long day, picture yourself unwinding in your backyard, reclining on a lounger, and being serenaded by the soothing sound of flowing water.
Adding a water feature to your garden not only transforms your backyard into an oasis of tranquillity, but it may also increase the value of your home!
Depending on the design, water features can also create an environmentally friendly haven for wildlife such as frogs, birds and butterflies.
It’s important to first plan out your vision to ensure your water feature will seamlessly integrate with your landscape and environment.
Water features can be as simple or elaborate as your budget allows, ranging from a simple tabletop fountain to a full-scale babbling brook.
Solar-powered fountains are an excellent choice for those seeking an environmentally-friendly option. By harnessing the sun’s rays, you’ll lower your electricity bills and you also won’t get tangled up in electrical cords.
If you have small children, safety should be a priority. Also, if you plan on digging, make sure to click before you dig so that you don’t cut through any pipes or cables that are hidden beneath the surface.
There’s something about the flow of water that naturally soothes the soul. Once you’ve put the finishing touches on your new water feature, find a comfortable seat, close your eyes and enjoy your very own piece of paradise!
