Picture this: You are a lounging on a comfortable reclining chair under the shade of tropical trees. You can hear the trickle of moving water in the near distance. But you are not on a vacation on a distant island. You are in the comfort of your own backyard. This luxury can be yours with a custom designed waterscape, such as a garden pond or backyard waterfall. Waterscapes are among the most popular backyard features for many reasons. Here are just a few:
Add a focal point to your backyard. Could there be a more stunning center to your outdoor space than a beautiful waterfall or pond? A waterscape gives your yard a central focal point and sets the tone for your entire yard. A professional design company, such as Exscape Designs, will work with you to incorporate a new feature into your existing landscaping architecture to ensure seamless design.
Waterscapes create an idyllic backyard retreat. Sometimes with the constant grind of daily life, school and work, it can be hard to find time to relax and unwind. A backyard water feature makes it easy to de-stress and enjoy the beauty of your outdoor space. Many people find particular comfort in the soothing sounds of moving water, such as a fountain or waterfall. Rather than trying to find the time to make an expensive trip to a far-off destination, you can turn any weeknight or weekend into a vacation at your own home.
Enhance an existing outdoor design feature. If you love to entertain friends and family on your outdoor patio, consider revitalizing the space with a water feature. Or, transform your garden space into a gathering area with a water fountain or small pond along with a comfortable bench for seating. Water features are great additions to any yard and can always be expanded or further customized over time.
Reclaim or improve a wetland area on your property.A professional landscape design company can add drainage features or barriers, such as a stone wall, to help you support the natural environment of your landscape while also improving its functionality. The beauty of the wetland area can also be enhanced with the addition of native plantings.
