Benefits of Installing a Backyard Water Feature

Whether you’re thinking about installing a waterfall or an outdoor pond, having some sort of water feature present in your backyard brings out the best in your property.

Even though you might be tempted to look more at the price tag and potential upkeep of anoutdoor water feature, there are tons of benefits of getting one installed in your yard. Here’s why you should do it.

1. Creates a peaceful ambiance

Forget all your worries. Release your inhibitions. Let the sound of running water wash over you. It might sound overly mystical, but water is actually a spiritual element that helps take those who meditate to another level. While you don’t necessarily have to go that far, simply closing your eyes and listening to the sound of a waterfall or the droplets of a pond is enough to create a peaceful getaway.

2. Increases the resale value of your home

Sure, being able to relax in backyard is a great way to think about an outdoor water feature, but let’s get down to the brass tacks: money. The cost of installation on these can vary with each project, but they usually end up paying for themselves and some because of how much the right feature could increase the value of your home.

3. Attracts wildlife

The worse backyards are those that are plain, empty and lifeless. Not only do water features add sound and movement, but they can also bring in beautiful bird species along with other wanted creatures. Instead of having to put up bird feeders somewhere in your yard, the birds will be naturally attracted by the sound and presence of water in which they can drink and frolic in.

4. Adds aesthetic appeal to your yard

If you feel like your backyard is bland, a water feature can spice it up and bring it to life. Think about hosting a late afternoon cocktail party in your backyard and seeing your guests in awe over the majesty of a pond with a waterfall. That’s something you can’t easily replicate with a simple update.

5. They’re flexible

The great thing about outdoor water features is that they’re flexible and can be designed to perfectly accentuate the positives of your yard. If you have a small yard, a fountain might be the best option, but if you have a large yard, a nice pond filled with fish could be a complement.
