Though there is still snow and ice one the ground, spring is right around the corner. That means it’s time to invest in a new landscaping project if you’re feeling a little adventurous. One of the most beautiful additions you can make to your yard or patio is a water feature. Water features can be a fountain, a pond, or even a waterfall. They can really add an element of ethereal beauty to what was once just a grassy area.
Fountains and waterfalls bring natural music to your home.
There are many different sizes and materials that fountains and waterfalls can be made of, but the one thing they all have in common is the lovely sound they make. The little babble of a tiny brook can bring a feeling of peace and serenity to any backyard hangout spot. Just imagine using your patio for morning yoga sessions or quiet reading time. A fountain could enhance the natural soundscape of your yard so that you can relax and watch the stars with newfound joy.
There are unique design opportunities.
By adding a water feature you can show the neighborhood the designer sleeping within you. A waterfall or fountain can be placed as a centerpiece of a flower display for when you host a party. Later, that same fountain could be decorated for a birthday party or wedding. Placing a water feature into your yard adds an element of glamour and sophistication that will turn a boring backyard into a venue for all sorts of fun events.
Your property value will soar.
It is absolutely apparent that adding exotic landscaping features will drive up the value of your property. When selling a house, appearance is everything. You really want potential buyers to look at your home and yards with awe. Adding a waterfall, pond, or fountain is sure to make their jaws drop, just as it did yours when you bought it.
