When you own a home, you should always be on the lookout for ways to improve it in unexpected ways. Have you considered adding any water features? Although fire features might be a good idea for the colder months, a water feature can be soothing to listen to in the evenings while you sip on your cider and contemplate the flames. Here are some questions to answer to find a flawless water feature this fall.
What’s Your Budget?
Before beginning any home improvement project, you need to ask yourself what kind of budget you have in mind. While you don’t want to overspend, you also don’t want to restrict how many options you might want to choose. Sometimes, you should be willing to exceed your budget, but only if your landscaping contractor offers you a design choice you just can’t pass up.
Why Do You Want It?
Next, decide why you want your new water feature. What purpose is it supposed to serve? You can use it to open your landscape, and make your backyard or front yard seem bigger than it is. If you live near a busy highway, water features can help block the obnoxious sounds of traffic constantly speeding by your home. Best of all, adding a water feature can help improve the serenity of your home. If you know what the goal of your water feature is, it’ll help you choose the best one for your space.
How Much Space?
When you think about the space you’re working with, don’t forget to measure the amount of space you can use. Besides the space that the water feature itself will take up, you might also want a table and some chairs. Those will need plenty of space too, so remember to account for that in your design plans.
What’s the Landscape Like?
Lastly, consider what the rest of your landscape is like when you’re looking to add a new water feature. Always strive for balance. After all, you don’t want your water feature to stick out – it’s still too early in the year for monstrosities in your yard. How will it all look when exposed to sun and wind? What about rain and snow? Your landscape helps determine the water feature you can use to complement it.
