From the Experts: All About Water Features
We asked Benjamin Mejia, owner of Sunshine Landscape Design (one of our favorite partners!), to share some information about the benefits of water features.
Today, we are going to talk about water features. Have you ever though about adding a water feature? You might be thinking, “What are the benefits of building a water feature?” Below, I will discuss several key benefits that will help you decide to add a water feature to your landscape.
You will come to find out that one of the benefits of building a water feature is the sound that brings to your patio. This sound creates a very relaxing atmosphere that can be enjoyed at any time of the day.
Many people are afraid of building a water feature, because they think that they require a lot of maintenance. This is not the case with most water features; unlike swimming pools they often require very little maintenance…so don’t let the maintenance frighten you!
Water features also attract natural wildlife, or you can even add your very own wildlife to it. For example, you can add fish, turtles, etc.
Creating a water feature gives that special touch to any landscape; it’s like your very own signature. In other words, it makes your landscape very unique and making your landscape unique is another benefit, because this means that you will not find the same atmosphere five houses down the road.
Lastly, a water feature can be customized to bring a specific type of atmosphere to your backyard and of course we’ll leave that to your imagination.
Hopefully these key points will want to make you think about building your next water feature, and if you need help you know who to call….your friends from SUNSHINE LANDSCAPE DESIGN.
