Now that spring is here, many homeowners are looking for creative ways to spruce up their lawns, including patios, gardens, and outdoor lighting. Perhaps one of the most attractive and relaxing additions is water features. The trickling water promotes a feeling of calm and adds a decorative touch to your landscape. Adding water features to your yard has numerous benefits, including improved air quality, increased wildlife presence, and a peaceful oasis. Here are some reasons why you should consider installing water features on your property.
Flexible Enough to Fit in Smaller Spaces
Even if you have a small yard, it doesn’t mean you are unable to install an outdoor water feature in your backyard. In fact, well-designed water features do not require much space, so you can still enjoy the benefits of water features without taking up too much space on your property.
You can install a water feature into an area of your property that previously seemed like nothing could fit there. Often, those awkwardly sized spaces are the best places to install small water features, as you can turn an empty area into a fantastic focal point.
Reduces Noise Pollution
The sounds of flowing water are soothing and help block out annoying noises. If you live near a busy street or have loud neighbors, a water feature can help reduce noise pollution, giving you a peaceful area to enjoy the outdoors. Research has shown that the sound of trickling water can help to reduce stress and promote relaxation.
Boosts Property Value
Properties that include landscape elements installed by a professional designer tend to be valued higher than properties with minimal landscape design. Installing a water feature boosts your property’s curb appeal and makes it more attractive to potential buyers, which gives you an edge in a competitive housing market.
Most water features constantly recycle water. The pumps are used to suck in, filter, and redistribute the water. This means you will save on water bills while enjoying a relaxing backyard oasis. Also, the water quality is not as crucial in water features as it would be in pools, which makes it easier to maintain.
