We’ve always associated fountains with dreams and movie-like moments. But what if that’s not the case? What if you could have an unforgettable, noteworthy water fountain moment right in your backyard? It’s possible!
Installing a water fountain to your backyard will not only bring out the dream-like essence to it but will also make your backyard more serene, aesthetic and quite possibly, your favourite spot in the house.
A common misconception associated with water fountains or any other landscape addition is that they’re only for the very well-off. But a backyard water fountain isn’t as pocket heavy as one would expect it to be. Despite the regular maintenance and check-ups required, it still doesn’t cost homeowners an arm and a leg. Many homeowners chose to caretake for it themselves, making it an enjoyable and refreshing activity.
Are you looking to bring more warmth and nature into your backyard, or maybe thinking of revamping the place left by the previous homeowners? Well then, a backyard fountain is a perfect choice. Adding a water feature to your backyard brings out a strong natural element to your place. The natural sunlight will also do wonders when shining through the water streams. And the array of sizing and style options provide for a space-efficient deal. The reflective nature of water also gives your backyard a luxurious and grand appeal.
How will it fit your style?
With the constantly changing times, styles and choices are also changing. People are wanting to invest in house features that when refurbished and reworked can still be of an asset to them. Homeowners are also adopting a range of styles for their gardens. Modern, classic, Greek, Old English and many more, the versatility in styles knows no bounds. And a backyard water fountain will not only stand the test of time but will also bring light and character to whatever garden it’s in.
Bring out the creativity in you
For the more creatively tuned people, backyard water fountains are a fantastic opportunity to play around with light, styles, garden designs and textures. From using different coloured natural river rocks to tiling your fountain a stunning colour. The addition of a water fountain into your backyard is a chance to explore the creativity in you and have your personal touch reflected in your backyard.
But this exploration doesn’t have to be limited to creativity, it’s also an opportunity to create a haven to retreat to, where you feel connected to nature. You can add fishes to your fountain, or even build a koi pond nearby. This will also mean more birds and frogs will be attracted to your backyard. As for flora, the opportunities are endless. When it comes to plants, the costs are low, but the return is always high. You can even plant different varieties of seaweeds and give your fountain some natural colour.
Best of summers
With the running water cooling down the garden, your backyard will not feel so tropical or boiling anymore. It will instead turn into a place to turn to on hot summer days. A patio, a book, some cool drinks, and it’s the best of summers. Also, after rains, you get to experience a small little rainbow in your backyard.
Create your zen
Often used in water therapies, water fountains can also provide a calming effect. It’s also a way to retreat from urban life lying outside of your home and become one with nature. Retreat from the noise of your neighbourhood and cherish the zen of your backyard.
