Nothing says luxury quite like including water in your landscape. Formerly a style reserved just for the rich and famous, waterscapes have become a popular way to add personality and pizzazz to a yard. And when done right, they can be the perfect complement to any landscape. Here are 3 ways to incorporate water into your landscape:
There’s nothing like the calming effect of a still pond right in one’s own backyard. This is great for larger spaces, especially where there is a lot of shade. You can surround your pond with stones, fill it with fish, or simply use it as a host for beautiful water plants.
If your yard boasts a hill or incline, then a stream is the perfect water feature for you. Not only do you get to hear the peaceful sounds of trickling water, but you also get to show off your home’s interesting terrain. For steeper inclines, you can incorporate a series of waterfalls, or if you have a pool or spa you can incorporate your stream into the design of your pool to add a luxe feel.
A fountain is the ideal water element for homeowners who want to add a bit of luxury to a fairly small space. This is perfect in the driveway, by the front entrance, on the back wall of the yard … and many, many more places. From stand-alone fountain pieces that coordinate with the style of your landscape, to fountains that are built right into your stonework, a fountain is an elegant way to take your landscaping to the next level.
