Beautify Your Backyard With These 3 Water Features

If you own a home, you’ll want to get the most you can out of your property. One of the best ways to accomplish this is by taking on landscaping projects that will allow you to better enjoy your backyard. After all, spending just 5% of your home’s value on landscaping can increase your potential resale value by 15%. But whether you love hosting big family get-togethers or simply want to experience some peace and quiet, Delaware landscaping companies can help make your backyard more functional and beautiful for your use.

But it’s not all about planting flowers or installing outdoor walkways. If you’re looking for a creative, restorative solution for your yard, custom water features can be a fantastic option. Below, we’ll take a look at three of the most popular water feature options that will make your green space even more appealing.

  1. Fountains
    You might think that a fountain might look out of place in your yard, but even a small one can make a big impact. Ceramic vase fountains or realistic-looking rocks with bubbling water can add visual interest and calming sounds to your outdoor area. And if you don’t have a ton of green space, you can implement a patio fountain as part of your hardscaping strategy. Best of all, they’re easy to maintain and provide feelings of movement and tranquility.
  2. Koi Ponds
    Koi ponds bring both serenity and life — literally! — to your backyard. They offer great aesthetic appeal and can even allow you to create a mini eco-system right at home. And because these fish make great, low-maintenance pets, the entire family can enjoy caring for koi ponds together.
  3. Waterfalls
    If you have limited space or don’t want to construct a pond, a cascading waterfall can help your space flow. These falls will help you feel more at peace without safety concerns. You can have cascading falls built in to your retaining walls or other hardscaping features in seamless ways, allowing you to make better use of the space you have.

Any water feature you choose can make your backyard into a beautiful and calm oasis. For more information on how Borsello Landscaping can help, contact us today.
