Water features can add elegance and romance to any property, from a simple small pond through to a gushing fountain. The sound of running water brings the wilds of nature to your back door, where you can relax in the hypnotic pulse of your chosen water feature.
A water feature needs regular maintenance and it’s important to note that they carry a risk factor to small children and animals. Much of the time it can be a romantic thought more than a practical one. On that note however we can still install an amazing water feature for you. As well as fountains we also can create ponds, streams and waterfalls. We plant water loving plants in ponds and add marginal water loving plants that can thrive on the edge of ponds.
Fountains, waterfalls, bubbling ponds — there are so many reasons why you should add an outdoor water feature to your domestic or commercial property.
1. Outdoor Water Features Are Calming
Anybody feeling stressed lately? Everybody put down your hands and go find a water feature. Studies show that running water relieves stress and even decreases blood pressure and heart rate. Water calms the mind. It just makes us feel good.
2. They Reduce Noise Pollution
The sound of cascading water helps drown out less pleasant sounds, like traffic, construction vehicles, or the noisy fast food speakers at the business next door. Who wouldn’t rather hear a bubbling fountain, the splash of a waterfall, or the gentle babble of a meandering stream?
3. Outdoor Water Features Attract Customers
Water features make a great first impression with their plumes of water, gurgling bubbles and cool splashes. Water reminds us of nature and nature is a great escape from the often hectic pace of life. An outdoor water feature at your retail center makes customers want to linger. And the longer they linger, the more they’ll shop. Another benefit of outdoor water features: they attract good employees. Your team members can take a rejuvenating break by the fountain or enjoy lunch near the cool and calming stream. Water features look like high-end luxury. Everybody wants to feel fancy, right?
4. They Help Birds
Clean water can be hard to find, especially in bustling urban environments. Your feathered friends appreciate the chance to stop by for a cool sip or to splash the dust off their wings. That’s a bonus for your tenants and customers, who get not only a cool, calming water feature, but a bit of bird-watching, too. And of course bird song – nature’s music.
5. Outdoor Water Features Purify The Air
We’re about to get all science-y here for a minute, but please stick around. Flowing water produces negative ions that attract dust and allergens and remove them from the air. So outdoor water features are natural air purifiers. Water features help cool the surrounding air, too.
6. Water Features Make Your Property Stand Out
If every apartment complex, restaurant, and shopping center had a water feature they wouldn’t be special. But not everybody has one. If you do, you’ll automatically have a jump on the competition. Your property will look more high-end, more attractive, more relaxing – a more pleasant place to be.
