Adding Water Features to Your Garden
There is something naturally soothing about the sound of trickling water. With listening to the sea, a trickling stream or a babbling brook being near the top of peoples list for relaxation. So why not introduce this soothing sound into your garden with an attractive water feature.
There are a number of water sounds that make us worry more than relaxing us, such as a dripping tap, leaky gutters or even rain. So introducing the right kind of relaxing water sounds can have a positive effect on you. There are a number of types of water features that offer different sounds depending on your preference, this can be trickling, dripping, bubbling and even splashing. You can either use the sounds or the visuals to influence your decision with water features depending on what you’re looking for.
When you are considering a water feature, there is a wide range of fountains that you can have to add that movement to your feature. The use of pumps in varying positions and varying features means that you can create any sort of falling water that you wish. Upwards tubes can create a variety of features depending on the angle, including a water dome.
There are a number of water features that we often have customers requesting, purely because they are firm favourites. This includes the stacked and angled buckets, the stepping stones, and the frogs with lily pads. While you may think that you want something unique, these are firm favourites because of both the visual and audio appeal, so might be worth a second look!
You can always consider something entirely different and unique to you. Whether your design features a water feature set in the ground, or something built up (always ideal if you have young children or pets), here at Abingdon’s we have the skills to help turn this into a reality. Get in touch with us to discuss your designs to see how we can help to get this idea from paper into your garden!
A water feature might sound like a great idea to you, but your garden might have more of a natural wildlife space. That’s great too! We can look at including a more natural water feature in your garden, such as a pond, that can blend into its surroundings. If you are a lover of wildlife, you might even find yourself welcoming new wildlife as they can feel that this water is meant to be there and start treating it like home. Frogs are great examples of what you might find in your new pond!
