Why Should You Have a Water Feature Installed in Your Yard?

Ponds, streams, fountains, and other water features offer the following benefits for yards of all sizes:

1. 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 the animals 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.

2. Enhanced Curb Appeal

If you are looking to enhance the curb appeal of your property, a pond, 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 standing out. 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 of the home. To attract potential buyers, it is also a good idea to ensure that the water feature is designed properly. This will ensure that it can be used in most seasons without the need for constant maintenance.

3. Reduced Noise Pollution

Certain types of water features—such as fountains or waterfalls—can help reduce the level of noise pollution in your backyard. 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 white 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.
