How many times have you gone on vacation and come home saying, “there’s no place like home”? Sometimes by the time you’ve endured airport delays, long lines, traffic and the expensive credit card bill that awaits you in the mailbox, you feel like you need a vacation from your vacation. So what’s the alternative? Believe it or not, there is an easy solution for creating an at-home, relaxing stay-cation environment. There’s nothing like being able to genuinely relax without leaving the comfort of your own home. By fashioning the perfect oasis with a Phoenix ecosystem pond or a disappearing pondless waterfall or stream, at-home serenity is not only possible, but it is a breeze to create.
So what exactly are water features? Water features for the backyard can be one or a medley of installations ranging from a basic birdbath or fountain to larger scale elements such as pools, ponds, waterfalls, fountains, and streams. Water, by nature, adds movement, life, and natural sounds and scents to any environment, automatically generating more soothing surroundings. A professional consultant specializing in water features can design a backyard pond, waterfall and/or stream to suit your own needs, desires, budget and available space. With proper design planning, water features for the backyard can transform your outdoor space from patio to paradise. It’s all in the details. A private backyard pond, for example, enhanced with natural embellishments like aromatic floral gardens, lush green plants or herbs, a bubbling waterfall, some quiet mood lighting and even some colorful fish, can take your mind and body to a peaceful place; a full sensory experience. It’s all the natural sights, sounds and touch that create ambiance and the comfort of a tranquil retreat.
Adding backyard water features to your home gives the vibe of a comfortable gathering place for friends and family, a sanctuary for privacy or a romantic sanctum to get away from it all.
