It brings birds and other water animals into your space
For those of you who really want to create a luscious, natural space, you will love the types of insects and animals that water features will attract to your garden. Picture local species of birds frolicking in the water on hot days as you lay in the sun listening to them chirping away. This is the type of serene atmosphere that you can expect when you install a water feature in your garden.
It adds depth and dimension to your garden
If you have a small garden and feel as though a water feature just wouldn’t work, think again. Adding the right sized option to your space can open up the area entirely – you just need to make sure that you choose wisely. Measure your garden and your desired feature before purchasing, and if possible choose something in a darker colour, such as grey or black. In addition to this, the reflection from the water will bring the illusion of depth into your yard, making it appear bigger. It’s the best way to make great use of a small space.
You can introduce semi-aquatic plants
Decorating your garden feature with ‘pond plants’ is half the fun of actually getting a garden feature to begin with. These plants are extremely affordable and easy to upkeep, not to mention that there are hundreds of different types to choose from. Depending on your surrounding plant life and the environment you are trying to create, investing in a few of these beautiful options can really bring your water feature to life.
If you’re planning on installing a water feature to your garden, make sure you get a licensed plumber to take care of the process from start to finish. Contact Curran Plumbing today for more information.
