When you’re pondering ways to improve your property’s value, you could probably think of countless ways to achieve that, but have you thought about a water feature? A water feature is an often-overlooked addition that can boost curb appeal and make your property more inviting. Most people install a water feature primarily for their own enjoyment and use but the benefits go way beyond that.
Water features have a myriad of positives that go beyond the value of your property. Simply being around a water feature can have health benefits like reducing stress, lowering the risk of depression and improvement of overall well-being. A water feature is relaxing to look at but also to listen to. The noise from a water feature also doubles as a way to drown out less-appealing sounds, like nearby traffic.
So what are we talking about when we saw water feature? Water features come in a variety of types, including ponds, fountains, streams and waterfalls. Ponds run the gamut from small, ornamental ones to larger options that can include waterfall and stream features as well as fish and other wildlife. A reflecting pool is a pond that is designed to be decorative and is often the central feature of a garden. An ornamental pool is also designed with aesthetics in mind and includes a water element such as a fountain. A water garden, as the name implies, includes a variety of aquatic plant life. Others, often usually larger ponds, might contain fish and various wildlife.
