A small fixture in the front yard is an excellent way to greet guests, while a backyard installment serves as a tranquil gathering area.

Though installing a water fixture is a small investment, it requires no major remodeling, yet changes the dynamic of your area.

Relaxation station. Close your eyes and recline. You are in your back yard, on your favorite chair and you’ve had a long day. As the sun sets, the birds chirping overhead, you slip into a state of inner peace, enjoying the trickling cascade of your water feature. There is good reason why you so easily fall asleep on the beach, and crashing waves and trickling streams are often sounds found on relaxation and meditation CDs-it just works! Many studies support this, as they suggest a water feature provides therapeutic benefits that can be enjoyed year round.
Mother Earth will thank you. Whether you opt for a small fountain or a pond, water features both small and large welcome wildlife inhabitants like butterflies, hummingbirds, salamanders, and frogs. When you enhance your home, you are also enhancing the lives of many local creatures. The kids will love their new backyard buddies, and recognize old friends that return in the spring. Step it up one further and utilize an eco system pond that is self-sustaining. Though it takes many gallons of water for its first fill, over time it requires less water than the area of grass it replaced.
Koi! The list of benefits go on and on… your kids learn kindness and responsibility as they feed their fish every day, visitors oo and ahh at your backyard oasis, and once you team the above perks with beautiful koi fish, you can’t go wrong. If you’re building specifically to house koi, or have thoughts of introducing them in the future, make sure your water feature is at least five feet deep and has a bottom drain as well as a water pump strong enough to cycle all of the water in the pond.
