Whether you live in a high rise city apartment or you are a single home owner with plenty of room for an outdoor living space, a water feature can add a unique touch to your landscape design. When you think of a water feature you may picture a cascading waterfall or a babbling brook running through a large scale landscape. Actually, a water feature can mean anything from an infinity pool to a patio fountain.
A landscape designer will have a lot of ideas for garden patios. He can take any size piece of sculpture for instance, and turn it into an accent item by adding a little bubbling water to a small stone fountain so that it will instantly become a delightful centerpiece.
If you have a little more room a professional landscaper can build a feature that will run throughout your entire backyard. He can create a design that will incorporate large pieces of greenery and various types and shapes of rock formations with well spaced areas of flowing water, and a flower pond to boot, if you wish.
Your swimming pool can be your water feature as well. A designer may suggest using large colorful pottery pieces filled with blooms decoratively situated around the pool, with urns of greenery to complement the flowers. Add an outdoor fireplace or enhanced lighting to complete the effect.
The benefits of adding a water feature to your landscape go beyond the obvious. In addition to providing a beautiful focal point a waterfall or fountain can contribute to your sense of serenity. There’s nothing like the soothing sound of a tranquil flow of water to take you away from the cares of the day.
