The human eye is immediately drawn to the beauty of a pond, waterfall, or fountain— especially when it’s featured in a way that complements the standing structures of one’s home or business. 

Adding a water feature to your landscaping is a simple way to add a touch of tranquil movement to the surroundings of your property. 

Here are 3 reasons why you should consider adding a water feature to your landscape:

1. It will attract nature’s loveliest wildlife.

The moment you install a water feature in your yard, you will notice a vast transformation in the scenery surrounding it. An ecosystem will begin to emerge— more birds and butterflies will visit and bat their wings. 

All living things need water for survival, and your little oasis will be a cornerstone in supporting the cute critters in your area.

2. It can bring peace and contentment.

In a world where most of us work long hours, it is hard to get away to see nature in its full glory on our own time (an important way to unwind from stress, might we add).

This, however, can be easily be remedied with the addition of a water feature in your own backyard. Come home from work, kick off your shoes, and allow the tranquility of the natural scenery to restore peace in your heart. 

3. It doesn’t have to require much maintenance.

Although you might associate adding a water feature to your landscape with the headache of maintenance required for installing a swimming pool, this really isn’t the case.

Pondless water features such as cascading waterfalls and wall fountains are great, low-maintenance options because their water re-circulates and don’t really grow much bacteria.
