Imagine coming home after a long day to sit and relax with the sounds of a waterfall nudging your stress away. The sound of a stream or babbling brook is a well-known stress reliever, and can serve many purposes in your landscape besides relaxation.
There are many benefits to incorporating a water feature in your landscape design, beyond simply the aesthetic benefits and stress relief. Water features can also improve the value of your home, and provide alternate sounds in a loud neighborhood.
That said, most homeowners who ask us to design a water feature do so with the goal of creating a relaxing environment in their own backyard. Water, waterfalls and the aquatic life that live in and around them provide an interesting focal point as well. Fish can add to the attraction for many, and adding wildlife such as frogs, Koi or even just goldfish to a pond can increase the relationship that one has with the pond.
If a pond seems overwhelming, or if space is an issue, there are simple water features can give the benefits and sounds of water without the need to create an expansive project. Pondless waterfalls and fountains can be a great place for timid homeowners to dabble in water features.
