Adding a water feature is an amazing way to enhance your landscaping. Not only do they look beautiful, but also they are a practical addition to your yard. Here are five reasons why you need to add one to your landscaping today!
There is a water feature for everyone
Ranging in all sizes, shapes, and styles, a water feature can mean anything from a small fountain amongst your flowers to a waterfall or a pond. The great thing about them is you can choose one to match your personality, as well as something that fits your landscaping style.

- Natural pond
- Small coy or fish pond
- Rain curtain
- Modern-design fountains
- Traditional-design fountains
Water features bring wildlife to your yard
Water features are an excellent way to attract birds, bugs, and butterflies. It’s a great way to see interesting critters and native pollinators and further diversify the appearance of your landscaping. They also act as a water source for wildlife which is especially important during times of drought when they may not be able to find water elsewhere.
Water features brighten your mood
The sound of a waterfall or bubbling fountain is relaxing for your body. It’s also beautiful to look at. Adding a water feature enhances your landscaping oasis, and it will cool the temperature in your yard making it all the more pleasant to be outside soaking up that vitamin D!
Boost your curb appeal with a water feature
Any well-maintained water feature is going to be an attractive addition to your landscaping. While it may not increase your home’s market value, it will certainly draw potential buyers in because it is a coveted piece for many people.
A great way to fill out your space
If you have an awkward amount of empty space in your landscaping, a water feature is just the thing for you! Depending on the size of your yard, you might need a small fountain, a large pond, or something in between.
