Adding a small water feature to your garden is like adding icing to the cake. It’s the pièce de résistance that makes everything look finished. The soothing sound of bubbling water and the sparkling rays of sun will attract humans and wildlife alike. Let the stress melt away as the sound of cascading water washes your worries away.

Water features come in a variety of styles, sizes, and budgets. It’s easy to find the one that will complement your landscape. Most are easy to install and require little maintenance making them worth the small investment of time and money.

People are naturally drawn to water. It doesn’t matter if it’s a pond, stream, ocean, or bird bath. When you add a water feature to your garden, the spot instantly becomes a social one, drawing in family, friends, and fauna. Bird baths attract birds of course but also insects and butterflies providing them all with a water source to drink, play and bathe in. They are also a simple and economic addition that can be added instantly for immediate gratification.

Bubbling fountains and waterfalls bring harmony to your garden by adding sound, movement and texture. The sound of water has a natural restorative effect that reduces stress and promotes creativity.

A waterfall can be added into any space, large or small. The water is contained and recirculated. Little maintenance is required (although a little more than a bird bath). Water will occasionally need to be added due to evaporation, and fallen leaves or other debris will need to be cleared periodically. Calgo Gardens has many designs to inspire you or will help you design the perfect one for your yard.

Fountainscapes are an easily created water feature that adds the sounds of running water using only a small space of your yard. They are composed of a basin, a pump kit and a feature. The installation is simple:

  • Dig the appropriate sized hole.
  • Place the basin in.
  • Hook up the pump.
  • Set the feature.
  • Add rocks to filter and turn the water on to enjoy!

There’s nothing more relaxing than sitting in the shade on a hot summers day and enjoying the tranquil, cool trickling of water flowing from your own fountain.
