Your backyard is the perfect place to take a break from the busy pace of modern life. Installing a water feature will help transform your garden into an oasis of tranquility and may also increase the value of your home.
Water attractions can be as simple or complex as your budget allows. Installing a pond is more involved since you have to dig and line a hole. Safety is of course a critical concern if you have small children and if you plan on digging, contact the appropriate utility companies to ensure you don’t break a line.
Keeping fish and other aquatic life means you’ll create an environmentally friendly haven for wildlife such as frogs, birds and butterflies. There's also a wide range of green alternatives such as solar powered fountains to choose from. By utilizing the sun's rays you'll use less power, enjoy lower electricity bills and won't get in a tangle over electrical cords!
It’s important to spend time during the planning stage to ensure your water feature will integrate with your landscape and environment. Once you’ve finished designing and implementing your new eye catching water feature, find a comfortable seat and enjoy the peace and tranquility.
