Adding Water Features to Your Yard for Beauty & Serenity

Grasshopper Gardens - Tuesday, July 21, 2015

Whether your backyard is a landscaping nirvana or just basic grass, adding a water feature can help increase the sense of beauty and serenity. You just might have a renewed interest in spending time in your yard again.

There are different types of water features. A couple of the most popular are ponds and waterfalls. Just the nature of still or moving water can bring a peaceful quality to your home and accentuate the natural beauty that comes with water features.

Some people wonder about the upkeep and care that needs to go into having a water feature in their yard, but by following some simple steps and understanding how they work, the time put into taking good care is minimal compared to the time you’ll spend enjoying it.

Different than a "water garden," water fountains need little attention, other than regular cleaning. Whereas water gardens need vital attention when it comes to growing vegetation and combining that with animals that need to coexist with the water garden.

If you choose to add a pond, keeping algae at bay is quite simple - without cleaning all the time. Adding a few fish and some floating plants can help greatly reduce algae. There are other strategies, so feel free to ask us about them.

Transforming your backyard with a water feature can change the whole look and feel of your yard. Ponds, fountains, and waterfalls add a natural beauty and serenity to any outdoor area, no matter how small or modest.
