If you’re looking to add a touch of luxury and sophistication to your landscaping, water features are the perfect way to do it. From ponds and fountains to waterfalls and streams, water features can add a whole new dimension to your yard. 

Take Your Yard From Ordinary to Extraordinary

Whether you want to add a focal point to your front yard or transform your backyard into a tranquil oasis, these five water features are fantastic options. Not only are they beautiful but they can also add value to your property! 

  1. Pond: Add a focal point to your landscape

Coming in all shapes and sizes, you can create a pond that fits your design perfectly and makes your yard a more peaceful place.

  1. Fountain: Add interest and drama to your yard

With so many fountains to choose from, you can find one that matches your style while adding flair and flow to your property.

  1. Waterfall: Add movement and sound to your ‘scape

Install a waterfall, and your senses will be transported to the forest every time you set foot outside. What better way to start your day?

  1. Stream: Add water without taking up too much space 

Streams can be used to create an array of gorgeous water features and can even go around your other landscaping as a border.

  1. Water Garden: Add life to your landscaping

Want to add color and life to your yard? With so many plants (and possibly fish!) to choose from, a water garden will certainly showcase your creativity.

Conserve Water With These Cool Features

Did you know that some landscaping features can help you conserve water? Not only will these three options pretty up your property but also help you save money and the planet at the same time!

  1. Xeriscape

Centered around incorporating native plants that don’t need a lot of water, xeriscaping is perfect for those who strive to be sustainable (or reside in a state like Utah that is often in a drought!).

  1. Drip Irrigation

Install a system of pipes and emitters in place of sprinklers, and you will save water and make it easier to water your plants at the same time. Not only that but you will also minimize the risk of weeds, fungus, soil erosion, and more!

  1. Greywater System

Why should water from your showers, sinks, and laundry go to the sewer when it could be used to water your yard? Capture it with a greywater system instead, and it will go straight to making your grass greener.
