If you’ve been paying attention to home trends over the past few years, you know that creating beautiful backyard living areas is all the rage. With more people planning to spend considerable time at home, having a space where they can unwind and relax is key. One of the most popular ways to add beauty and peace to an outdoor living space is with a water feature. Water features can be anything from a pond to a birdbath, but one that you should definitely consider is a backyard waterfall. The combination of moving water (which has both a soothing sound and other purported health effects) and landscaping produces a very peaceful feeling in a backyard.
Adding Home Value
Adding a backyard waterfall, either into a pool, a pond, or something else, is a good way to add to your home value. If you have a peaceful and beautiful outdoor feature, your home will stand out from those around it. As long as it stands out in a good way, this is a great move for adding value if you are considering selling. Consider adding backyard lighting to draw attention to your backyard waterfall to make it even more beautiful.
Having a moving water feature in your yard is also a good way to improve your health. Any way that you can decrease stress and dd more peace and relaxation will be a positive thing. There is some evidence that even the sound of moving water can improve mood and decrease stress. There is also some evidence that the ions provided by moving water contributes to these health benefits as well.
Even if you aren’t planning on selling any time soon, having a unique outdoor feature is a good way to turn your yard into a prime entertaining spot. During the summer, the moving water of a backyard waterfall not only adds ambiance with the sound of moving water, but can also cool the area around it. Backyard waterfalls pair well with other popular landscaping features, including other water features (like pools and ponds) and backyard fire pits and fireplaces. These sorts of features in your yard can make your everyday relaxing better, but they can also turn your home into a paradise, perfect for a staycation vacation or just the thing needed to make your AirBnB in-law suite more enticing. Use this opportunity to increase the resort feel of your home with backyard features like waterfalls and beautiful plants.
