There are very few things as tranquil as the soothing sound of outdoor water. It is calming, de-stressing, and very therapeutic. Imagine walking out of your back door into your very own private oasis. Imagine relaxing in your own little piece of heaven, forgetting all your problems, and simply enjoying nature.
Outdoor water features provide soothing signs and sounds that can help improve your physical and mental health. The typical koi water pond is still common in many landscapes. However, in recent years, landscape water features have dramatically changed and improved.
Disappearing Water Fountain
A disappearing water fountain is a hidden reservoir buried in the ground that pumps water through the fountain piece. As an added feature, the water then, seemingly disappears back into the ground. It provides the spray and sounds of a water fountain without an open pond. Moreover, it also offers a stunning visual effect as the water will disappear back into the base. Either as a standalone feature or a garden enhancer, a disappearing water fountain is certain to draw attention.
Virtually everyone loves the sight and sounds of a waterfall. Common waterfall features include staircases, driftwood, and gravel. Regardless of which you choose, the benefits waterfalls provide make them a smart and rewarding investment. By adding a waterfall to your landscaping, you can expect to increase the curb appeal and value of your home. Moreover, the sounds of flowing water help to drown out noise pollution from neighbors and traffic. If these benefits aren’t enough, consider the entertainment a waterfall provides. Additionally, many people find it peaceful to watch the birds and wildlife that are attracted to waterfalls.
A pondless waterfall can be likened to a beautiful lagoon – minus the maintenance required for upkeep. Often, a pondless waterfall is considered the perfect option for a homeowner with limited space or no time for maintenance. Pondless waterfalls are connected to a standing body of water that is not visible. A grate sitting over an opening in the ground is hidden by rocks or gravel. From there, the water falls into a reservoir that has a pump attached. The pump then channels the water through a filter and up to the top where it repeats the same process. Pondless water fountains are compact and nearly maintenance-free. Moreover, they are also available in many designs. The only limit is the amount of space you have in your yard. Choose a pondless waterfall as a simple accent piece or choose a style that spans your entire yard.
Contemporary pondless waterfalls often feature marble or granite steps. In addition, combine your pondless waterfall with lighting placed under the surface or near the edge, to give it a striking appearance.
