Water features are a staple of many gardens because of the many benefits they provide. Now that we’re in the middle of summer and seeing brighter and warmer weather, many of you will no doubt be flocking to your gardens to sit out and enjoy the sun, and for that we can’t fault you. Your garden can be utilised in many different ways during the summer, such as sunbathing during the day or hosting a barbeque. Water features can only add to your summer garden endeavours, whether it be providing visual attraction for guests or feeding the birds, here’s a list of benefits of installing a water feature in your garden.
A Calm Atmosphere
Water features can help upgrade your garden’s atmosphere because the sound of running water can give your garden a sense of peace and tranquility. Giving your garden a peaceful and tranquil quality will allow you to use it as a retreat from the stress and worries of everyday life, so installing a water feature could lead to improving your mental health and overall wellbeing. There are a variety of water features that we can install to give you this effect, as here at Yorkshire Gardens we offer a variety of unique and intricate designs, tailored to your vision or ours if you’re struggling to find your own.
When it comes to visual appeal, a water feature can enhance the visuals of your garden and be an attraction for guests. Yorkshire Gardens offer the installation of many different features that can bring a sense of grandeur or spectacle to your garden, for example a fountain or a waterfall. Having a feature such as these will be ideal in summer and if you’re having guests over for gatherings, given that they will make your garden more extravagant and impress your guests.
Beneficial for Nature and Wildlife
Water features can also lead to small ecosystems because they can provide various animals with a number of different needs. If you have a feature such as a waterfall installed then birds are able to use the water for necessities such as drinking and bathing. At Yorkshire Gardens, we also install ponds in addition to water features, which we can also stock with fish if you choose and it can provide them with a home.
Boosts Property Value
As well as being an attraction for guests, having an extravagant landscape feature can add visual appeal and charm to potential buyers. If you’re looking to add value to your house before selling it, then installing a water feature will increase it because it will offer all of the aforementioned benefits to the future homeowners. In addition to ponds and features such as fountains, even something such as a small standard waterfall will be enough to increase property value.
