A Water Feature is a landscape enhancement that utilizes water and other materials to bring beauty and serenity to the environment. A Water Feature can create a naturalistic ambience and act as a focal point when foliage is less prominent, and a subtle accent when the garden is in bloom. Water Features can provide an interesting backdrop for entertaining while adding aesthetic appeal to your landscape.
The design of a Water Feature is to introduce artistry and tranquility into your outdoor space and be able to integrate seamlessly into a landscape. There are many different types of Water Features, which can include ponds, waterfalls, fountains and water walls. The key is to use elements in the Water Feature that complement the shape, texture and style of the garden. This combination of elements – the basin, pedestal or base, and spout – can help determine the sense of style. Water Features do not have to include plants or fish. The sound of water and the drama of the design can be enough for some gardeners and gardens.
Water Features provide soothing sights and sounds that help you relax and de-stress in today’s busy world. The sound of a Water Feature will help drown out noise from traffic and/or neighbors. It can help lower your blood pressure and improve your physical and mental health as you prop your feet up and enjoy the therapeutic effects of Mother Nature.
