Water feature in garden

Is it worth considering a water feature for your garden?

If you’re looking to add a touch of tranquility and relaxation to your garden space, then there’s almost no better way to do this than a water feature. Water features can provide an extra aesthetic value to your garden, and can also help create a peaceful atmosphere that’s perfect for unwinding and enjoying some downtime. What’s more, if you’re looking to elevate your water feature to even higher standards of aesthetic pleasure, you could always complement it with some of our stunning Indian Sandstone paving slabs.

Here at Bridge Street stone, we’ve been providing our customers with expertly crafted garden slabs since 1991. In that time, we’ve learned a lot about what kinds of garden features can bring value, atmosphere and wildlife to your space. So with that in mind, here are a few of the reasons why it’s definitely worth getting a water feature for your garden.

A water feature looks beautiful

Water features can add a beautiful focal point to your garden, creating a stunning visual display that will impress any visitor. There are many types of water features to choose from, including fountains, ponds, waterfalls, and streams. You can select a water feature that complements your garden's style and fits your personal preferences. What’s more, a well maintained water feature can add value to your home if and when you decide to sell up!

It can enhance relaxation

One of the main reasons people choose to install water features in their garden is for relaxation purposes. The sound of flowing water has a calming effect on the mind and body, and listening to the sound of water can help to reduce feelings of stress, anxiety, and even lower blood pressure. If you’re looking to create a peaceful atmosphere that’s perfect for meditating or simply unwinding after a long day, then a water feature is a great idea.

It can enrich your garden by attracting wildlife

A water feature provides a beautiful display in your garden space, which can be a really effective way of inviting wildlife into your space. Birds, butterflies, and even small animals like hedgehogs and vowels are drawn to water sources, so by installing a water feature in your garden, you can enjoy watching these creatures as they drink, splash, and play around in it. Plus, when the summer time comes around, sources of water can be hard to come by for small wildlife, so a water feature offers them a place where they can go and hydrate on a hot day. 

Water features come in many styles, sizes, and materials to suit any budget and preference, and they’re a great way of attracting wildlife to your space while increasing the value of your property. If you want to enhance your garden's overall aesthetic and create a relaxing atmosphere, a water feature is definitely worth considering. What’s more, if you want to add further aesthetic value to your garden through the addition of Indian paving slabs, then you’re in exactly the right place.
