Have you always wished that you lived by an ocean or a lake? Does your yard lack ambiance and tranquility? Are you simply tired of hearing cars drive by when you’re relaxing in your backyard? Water features are the perfect solutions to all of these conundrums. They add interest to a bland and land-locked yard, they infuse the space with serenity, and they can mask unpleasant sounds. Plus, there are many different water features to choose from depending on the size of your yard, the size of your budget, and your goals.
Nixa Lawn Service can design and install a variety of water features. Your choices include the following:
- Water gardens
Although this list is short, you have a multitude of options because each choice comes in many different sizes and designs. Water features can be as small as flowerpots or as large as pools. There are numerous styles to choose from as well, so whether you prefer classic designs, modern, Asian-influenced, or natural and organic, amongst many others, you’re sure to find the perfect product.
For example, you could install a small Asian-inspired fountain, a grand fountain capable of performing water shows, or a utilitarian retaining wall fountain built primarily for its sound and visual drama. Or, if you’re more interested in a pond, you could build a miniature pond on your patio or an enormous water garden that overtakes your backyard! Search online for inspiration before you settle on a water feature; you will be amazed at the possibilities.
If you have a child, water features have the potential to be great entertainment, but they can also be unsafe depending on the age of the child. Very young children who like to toddle around and explore will be safest if you install water features with more height, less accessibility, and less water. Older children, on the other hand, will likely enjoy a fountain or stream where they can play with their toys or a pond that is home to fish and frogs.
For your convenience, we can install an automatic fill feature and/or a professional filter, depending on the project. This technology makes caring for water features simple. An automatic fill feature senses the level of water in the pond and refills it when necessary, eliminating the need to refill the pond with your hose. A professional filter will reduce the prominence of algae, improve the appearance of the water, and keep fish healthy and visible. These products aren’t necessary for a beautiful and functional pond, but they will lessen the maintenance required for your water feature.
Installation of water features is best left to the professionals, especially if the project you choose is very large or invasive. You won’t have to construct it through trial and error, and you will feel more confident during the process knowing that someone with expertise and experience is in charge. Plus, if anything goes wrong with the water feature in the months that follow, you will know who to call for repairs and maintenance tips.
