Water features can add a lot of interest to your yard with sound, movement, and beauty. An eye-catching water feature will be the centerpiece of your landscape, landscape beds, and the center of conversation when you have your friends and family over for a cookout. So if you are on the fence about adding a water feature to your yard, read on and see if we can’t convince you.
In your daily life of driving to work, working in a stuffy office, and driving home, you don’t really get a chance to experience nature. The only chance we get to go out and experience the beauty of Hernando, Mississippi is when we go to a park or on a camping trip.
You can bring that same natural beauty to your backyard by adding a water feature. Picture yourself on a relaxing Sunday morning out on your patio with a cup of coffee, listening to the tranquil sounds of water flowing over rocks. You sit back, close your eyes, and let the stresses of the week melt away. You will go back to work on Monday refreshed, recharged, and ready to take on the week.
Everything needs water to survive, so it’s no surprise that once you install your water feature you will be visited by a host of wildlife looking for a drink. If you are looking to attract birds to your property then there’s no better way than by giving them a place to rest, drink, and bathe. You can even expect to see birds you never see stop in on their migratory journeys for a quick refuel before continuing on their way.
The plants and flowers you decorate your water feature will also attract bees, dragonflies, frogs, and turtles. If you have a pond you can even add some fish to prevent mosquitoes from using your water feature as a breeding zone.
You don’t need a huge yard to enjoy the benefits of your own water feature. Water features can be as big or as small as your imagination allows. Pondless features like fountains and waterfalls can be tucked into corners of your yard, added to your patio, or cover up unattractive spots in your yard.
Once up and running, a pondless water feature requires very little work from you. Fountains, wall fountains, and waterfalls are all low maintenance water features that keep the water in constant motion preventing mosquitoes and bacteria from forming. All you have to do is turn on the water, sit back, and enjoy the soothing sounds of running water.
Whatever water feature you choose to add to your property you have the opportunity to make it unique to your tastes. There are plenty of easy DIY fountains that are fun for the whole family. Add rocks and plants to make your ponds and waterfalls reflect your own personal tastes.
The most important thing when designing your water features is to have fun while doing it. Soon you will be able to enjoy the benefits of having a tranquil water feature in your backyard.
