The Benefits of Custom Water Features
You and your environment can be transformed by outdoor water features. The sound is mesmerizing, the movement is transparent and they provide a sensation that is cool and fresh. Outdoor water features in Houston provide a real sensory treat for all the senses – visual, auditory, tactile and olfactory. Since the beginning of time, moving water has been placed around our homes because a certain kind of magic is placed on us by water; it soothes our very beings and souls.
An outdoor fountain makes a statement about a home that is graceful by creating an ambiance that is pleasing and welcoming. They can also help to enhance a home’s architectural style and property value. In these technological times, outdoor fountains are especially beneficial, they serve as a sort of camouflage from noise from traffic, thrashing lawn mowers, and humming air-conditioner units. They can also be designed for people to play in them; this can provide cool relief on days that are hot – ideal for the Houston area.
Water features have a one of a kind ability to add a completely different dimension to a yard. There are not many other additions that provide the same dramatic effect regardless of whether it is a disappearing fountain, a waterfall, a kettle garden or a koi pond.
Other than the general aesthetic benefits, water features that are well placed provide an atmosphere that is soothing and tranquil, one where the whole family is able to relax as they enjoy the therapeutic effect provided by flowing water. It also makes for great conversation amongst neighbors and friends.
We Can Help You Pick a Water Feature
Once you have decided to consider adding a water feature, it is important you have an understanding of the kinds that are available for your budget as well as climate zone and that is something that water fountains Houston can assist you with.
Houston´s climate zone is categorized as being humid subtropical, this means that our summers are really hot and our winters are somewhat mild. This must be taken into consideration because what is great for one area may not be the best for this one in particular.
Another thing that you should have some knowledge in is the maintenance which the particular option you are interested in will require. For example, Koi ponds require consistent monitoring of the temperature and filtration so that the fish stay alive.
Desired Materials and Specifications
Once you have decided precisely what water feature it is you want the next thing to do is go over the material which will be used to build it. There are literally endless options. For example, you can build a water fountain out of concrete, brick, (precast) stone, (stone) veneer, natural stone, or other masonry materials.
There are pros and cons associated with each option, regardless of its price. There are many homeowners with amazing ideas, and our job is to make those ideas come true, that being said, things such as the space available, budget requirements, as well as homeowner association rules must be taken into consideration.
Ultimately the decision is yours and our job for the get go is to recommend the options that are best for you based off of your current situation.
