If you are looking to enhance the appeal of your backyard, a well-designed water feature may be the perfect addition to your property. Whether you are looking for a unique bubbling boulder, compact water stream, or a large pondless waterfall, water features provide a variety of benefits for properties of all sizes. As a leading provider of complete landscape design and construction services, the team at Patterson Landscapes knows how incredible water features can be when they are designed and installed correctly. That is why we have compiled a list of 3 reasons to install a water feature on your property to demonstrate why they are worth the investment.
4 Benefits of Water Features
Streams, fountains, and other water features offer the following benefits for yards of all sizes:
1. Enhanced Curb Appeal & Home Value
If you are looking to enhance the curb appeal of your property, a well-designed stream or fountain is the perfect solution. These features can be designed to look as though they were naturally formed in your yard, enhancing appeal without looking out of place. If you are hoping to get a better resale value for your home, adding a water feature can help increase the appeal and property value. To attract potential buyers, it is crucial to ensure that the water feature is designed and installed by a professional. This will ensure that it can be used in most seasons without the need for constant maintenance or repairs.
2. Reduced Noise Pollution & Enhanced Relaxation
Certain types of water features—such as fountains or waterfalls—can help reduce the level of noise pollution in your backyard, making it easier to kick back and relax. While the sound of water is soothing and can be used to block out annoying sounds like traffic or construction, it is important to select a water feature with the right amount of ambient noise for your yard. This will allow you to enjoy a peaceful and relaxing area at all times of day without making it difficult to speak to guests or family members.
3. Supporting the Natural Ecosystem
Adding a water feature to your yard is a great way to attract wildlife such as birds, rabbits, squirrels, and dragonflies. Inviting beneficial wildlife onto your property can provide endless hours of entertainment while providing wildlife and pets with a fresh and clean source of water. Adding plants to a water feature can also be a great way to bring the feature into harmony with the local ecosystem while enhancing water clarity and air quality for your yard.
4. Lasting Quality and Water Conservation
A well-designed water feature will last many years when installed by a skilled and experienced landscaper. This longevity is further extended if the landscaper uses quality products from brands like Aquascape in their construction. In addition to lasting quality, water features use less water throughout a year than a typical lawn. This allows you to enhance the beauty and relaxation of your property while being responsible with your water consumption.
