No garden is complete without a water feature. Even a very small bubbling fountain can elevate the simplest flower bed. We are so delighted with our new water feature–the soothing water noise is so nice that I’ve been wondering if there’s another spot in my yard for a little pond or fountain. Aside from the aesthetics, I’ve learned that there are some other good reasons to add water to your landscaping. Water in motion provides one of the best sources of white noise, which can muffle traffic sounds and other noise pollution. It also attracts wildlife, especially birds and butterflies, which are so good for your soul and your local ecosystem.
