Best Water Features for your Utah home
Dreaming of an outdoor oasis in your backyard? An enchanting place where you can hear the sound of the flowing waters, see the lush greenery, and enjoy a piece of nature?
A lot of homeowners share the same delight for having their private serenity in their yard, who wouldn’t? Installing water features boasts a lot of benefits for you, your home, and the environment.
Aside from the beauty and tranquility they offer, water features boost the curb appeal of your home thus raising its value in the market. They also attract wildlife and when designed and installed properly, help you conserve water compared to maintaining lawns.
Let us help you explore the most popular water features ideal for your Utah home.
The natural terrain of homes located in high altitude areas, like Park City, Utah, can be enhanced by building breathtaking waterfalls. There are numerous designs from natural, cascading rock waterfalls to contemporary glass waterfalls. The materials vary from flagstone, cobblestone, or even fiberglass.
Depending on your yard space, you can opt for a conventional size or a grand, multi-tiered version. A waterfall is a great focal point for your guests to enjoy when entertaining outdoors or a serene escape for you and your family.
If you want a subtle water feature design instead of a lavish waterfall, you can build a running stream in your yard. This is ideal for homes located in flat or leveled areas. Achieve that rustic vibe by adding ornamental plants along with a wooden bridge.
It is a perfect spot for relaxation after a stressful day or sweet conversations with family.
Marvel at an oriental piece of art right at your doorstep! Remember those paintings showcasing a pond lined with natural stones, having floating water lilies and vibrant Koi fishes? You can achieve this perfect picture of nature by adding a pond to your yard. It serves as your secret hideaway where you can meditate, de-stress and enjoy your own zen space.
You can decide on different designs ranging from the traditional natural stone ponds, to Japanese-inspired gardens, and even opt for a more modern version with dark-colored floating stones.
Is space limiting you from having a water feature at home? Well, you can opt for fountains. This DIY-friendly water feature is a great addition to beautify the corners of your yard. Ideas can vary from using urns, stacked natural stones, or even recycled materials such as plant pots, wine barrels, and a lot more!
However, if you have more yard space to spare, you can choose modern designs or incorporate fountains to other water features such as swimming pools or ponds.
We often hear the phrase, water is life! Yes, water keeps us healthy not just with enough intake but also with the sight and sound of it. That is why, we get relaxed upon hearing flowing waters or stand in awe at the turquoise hues of the beach. So, call us and we’ll help you realize the natural escape you have always dreamed of for your yard!
Whether you choose one of these water features or decide to combine different types, it is important to ensure proper installation to help you save time, energy, and water. Small and simple designs might be achieved using DIY techniques, however, large and complex ideas would need professional knowledge from experts like Dream Custom.
