Not all water features are created equal, and not all water features are right for everyone. You may find that there’s a type of water feature that you like better than any other or you may find that you like the idea of combining a few types of water features. Whatever you choose, know that the sound and sight of water in your Maryland landscaping project will be relaxing and aesthetically pleasing. With so many options, how do you choose the one you like best? Start by finding out what your different options actually are!
- Ponds – If you really like having wildlife around, ponds are a great way to go. Putting koi or goldfish in the pond along with other friendly plants will encourage more animals to make use of your bond, like birds and frogs. You’ll have a pretty feature teeming with wildlife. It’s a great, environmentally friendly choice that will make your Maryland landscaping even prettier.
- Fountains – These are great water features that can actually be made to recycle water rather than use a bunch of it – who knew? You can have a fountain and still be environmentally conscious. Fountains are also really versatile. You can use them in ponds, pools, or by themselves, depending on your preference.
- Waterfall – Almost every little girl has wanted to feel like a mermaid at some point in her life. Installing a waterfall in your pool (or even just somewhere in your backyard) can give you this feeling. Plus, what’s cooler than standing behind a waterfall and seeing everything distorted by water? You’ll need at least two pools of water, so this one will probably take a little extra planning.
- Backyard stream – This is another great water feature to pair with others, like a pond or pool. Putting a meandering stream in your backyard will make it feel like you’re living in the woods without ever having to leave your own property. The sound of running water is calming and relaxing. Plus, you could also use this stream to properly drain water from your property.
