4 Popular Water Features for Backyards of all Types
Introduction of water features into your garden can greatly enhance its overall look and serenity. Following are some of the most commonly used water features in Perth households:
Ponds can be an excellent addition to any backyard and must be ideally placed in areas where they can receive sunlight for a minimum of 4 to 6 hours per day. Exposing your pond to any more sunlight can result in algae problems. We highly recommend use of some pond insert to serve as the foundation for your pond. After landscaping your pond with the help of rocks and stones, and post the installation of important water supply equipment, you must introduce some fish and plants into your pond. Although compared to plants, fish require a great degree of care and feeding, they definitely add to the backyard’s aesthetic value. In addition, the presence of fish prevents breeding of insects in the pond.
A fountain when added to an existing pond, can breathe life into your backyard. Fountain heads are normally available in all designs and spray patterns, and can be easily submerged in shallow water. The natural flowing water sound delivered by them results in a very soothing atmosphere. Installation of some fountain lights can further improve the elegance of your backyard. There are small fountain lights available in the marketplace which can deliver certain visually stunning enhancements at night. Check them out too!
You may even set up some natural looking waterfall to enhance the visual appeal of your garden. The size of waterfall will depend on your garden space. The waterfall can be built in a manner that it gives a very realistic effect. Many landscape designers make effective use of small pebbles, large stones and rocks of varyingcolours and sizes to deliver a visually appealing effect. It is best that you avail the services of some experienced landscape designer for proper installation of waterfall in your garden. Setting up waterfalls can sometimes be a tricky affair as the running water requires a watertight and well-designed path for continuous operation.
Another popular water feature in many Perth Gardens, bird bath comes in all shapes, materials and sizes. As is evident from its name, its main purpose is to encourage wildlife inflow and attract birds to your backyard. Bird baths created with concrete and stone are highly popular nowadays.
