Hello and welcome back to the Elemental Fountain blog! If you are interested in landscaping your yard, you are in the right place. On our blog, we talk about all things landscaping and even entertain with facts about noteworthy landscaping around the world. If you have just bought a new home in the Phoenix area or if your outdoor space is in need of a revamp then you’re right where you need to be. It’s easy to install a rock garden or a simple grass covered lawn and call it good, but why not create that outdoor oasis that you’ve always wanted? A water feature can be a great element to add to your backyard. Why? Glad you asked!  

Sounds of Nature

A water feature adds the sounds of nature. When was the last time you took a walk or even camped out in nature? Do you remember how you felt? Did you feel more at peace than in the hussle and bussle of the city? A water feature can bring nature to you! Also, there are studies that have been done on the therapeutic nature of the sounds of water. Imagine coming home from a stressful day, leaving work at the door and sitting even for just ten minutes and enjoying the peaceful sounds of nature. If you are retired, imagine enjoying cool mornings and evenings relaxing on your patio reading the paper and sipping coffee or enjoying a night cap before you turn in for the night.   

Can Fit Anywhere

A water feature can fit anywhere! So, you don’t have to worry about not being able to enjoy the benefits of a water feature simply because you might not have a large outdoor area. Water features can be adapted to the size of your yard and the space that you have for it. Also, it can be the perfect landscaping element to fit in those awkward spaces of your patio or yard that you don’t know what to do with. No more wasted space, and more serenity!

Attract Wildlife to Your Doorstep

Installing a water feature in your yard can also attract more wildlife to your backyards. Imagine enjoying the pretty songs of birds in the mornings, seeing baby birds born in your yard, or watching squirrels play. Access to water, especially in Phoenix, will definitely attract more critters to your yards.

Little Maintenance

There is a misconception that all water features are high maintenance like a pool. However, unlike a pool, a water feature doesn’t require much of your time and attention. Pondless water features especially, are very low maintenance, because there is no standing water that can be prone to grow bacteria and other plant life. Also, a pondless water feature doesn’t pose the safety risks that a pond or pool do to small children.

Make It Your Own

Also, a water feature provides you the opportunity to make your landscaping and outdoor space completely your own. Because it can be placed anywhere, you can — you guessed it — place it anywhere that you want. Also, you can design something that you love that is completely original.
