Have you ever considered adding a water feature to your Omaha landscape? Water features add sound, texture, and movement to landscaping designs and help homeowners to feel that their surroundings are more natural and unique.
A landscape water feature can include elements such as a fountain, stream, or waterfall. The sound of water has a therapeutic effect on many people. It can help reduce a person’s stress levels. Over time, stress reduction may be able to add years to a person’s life – but that’s just one benefit. Here are water feature benefits to any Omaha landscape.

They bring the sounds of nature to your doorstep
You work long hours, and it’s not often possible to get away from it all and enjoy nature’s soothing sounds. In this case, bring nature to you. With today’s technology and a clever plan designed just for your property, the soothing sounds of nature can be just outside your doorstep.
The sound of moving water is a great way to mask or cover up unwanted noise from a busy roadway, city street, etc. It doesn’t take a lot of water or a large waterfall to create enough of a ripple and buffer to do the trick. The results are amazing and so soothing.
They will attract natural wildlife and enhance your local ecosystem
As soon as your water feature is installed, you’ll begin to notice an increase in wildlife on your property. Birds will visit, and dragonflies will dart around. Instead of a barren span of horizontal land, your yard will become a haven for beneficial wildlife. Inviting wildlife onto your property provides endless hours of entertainment and educational opportunities for you and your family.
All living creatures need water to survive, so you’ll be supporting life in your little corner of the world. The plants you include in your landscaping plan, along with your water features, bring your property into harmony with the habitat around you.
Define Your Lawn or Garden
Use water features to add a unique and specific definition to your landscape. Create added visual interest with a water focal point. A water feature also adds a designer touch to your property. It provides sound and movements to an otherwise still area. This offers definition and provides more opportunities to use your yard.
A well-maintained and designed landscape may increase the value of your real estate investment by as much as 20%. Not only will this offer increased enjoyment for your personal use, it will offer an increased selling point should you decide to sell your home. Prospective buyers will pay more for an established landscape, just as people will pay more for an already updated kitchen or bathroom.
Water gardens also add curb appeal, which helps to increase property values even more.
These water systems also require very little maintenance. This can help reduce, even eliminate, those out-of-pocket expenses. Pools, on the other hand, do require upkeep and vigilant monitoring. There is also little wasted water due to re-circulation.
They can be adapted to fit smaller spaces
Don’t automatically dismiss the idea of including water features in your landscaping design just because you have a small yard. Well-designed pondless water elements don’t require much space, so you can still enjoy the sound of water and the increased wildlife without taking up much of your precious land. A water feature can be tucked into an area of your property that previously seemed a waste of space. Often, awkward spaces are the best places to put small water features; you can turn an ill-used area into a beautiful focal point.
