For many people the soft sounds of moving water creates a soothing and relaxing environment that can create a great reading area, thinking pit, and an atmosphere for just relaxing. There are many ways to incorporate water features into your landscape including:
• Running Creek Beds with water returns
• Small Ponds for vegetation or fishes
• Fountains with cascading or spouting features
Creek Beds running through your yard area with a destination collection area that includes a pumping station for water return back to the start of the creek bed can create an extremely nice water feature. This type of water feature can require some in-depth excavation work to your property and probably would require a lot of bedding materials including gravel, rocks, and boulders. As you can tell from the material needs this would be a more expensive type project.
Small, fish, and vegetation ponds can be an affordable addition to your landscape while changing its appearance and beauty. Most of this type of water feature is somewhat less expensive and requires minimal excavation with the use of a predetermined plastic liner that you placed into a hole location. You then add rocks, stones, fishes and/or vegetation and in a very short period of time you have a soothing landscape addition.
Fountain additions can be among the easiest and least expensive water addition you can add to your landscape. Most fountains are self-contained, self-pumping units that take up less space and can be placed anywhere you like. Fountains come in several types: spouting and cascading units that can be used in a pond or can be pond-less.
• Spouting fountains often are placed in ponds and shoot water into the air that falls back into the pond creating splashing sounds.
• Cascading fountains, usually are self-contained, having a soothing trickling effect that is created by having multiple levels for the water to flow too.
