CUSTOM PONDS & WATERFALLS
Water is magical, transformational and relaxing. When added to the features of your homes, water can do wonders. Why go far to natural water spots in your area when you can make one in your home?
If problems like space, constraints of budget, manpower and water source hinder you from building decorative ponds and waterfalls in your home, you don’t need to worry at all. Champlain Valley Site Work and Building is here to work for you in transforming your dreams into reality.
So, why ponds and waterfalls? An idle and even small space in your home can become a point of interest as ponds add elegance to the overall appearance of your property. When ponds are incorporated with waterfalls together with rocks, wood and plants, a landmark based on your aesthetic taste would create not only a place of relaxation but also a welcoming impression to your visitors.
The sound of a moving water from a waterfall would make you instantly relaxed the same way the ocean, rain and stream relieve you from stress. This sound of waterfalls would also serve as masking as it overpowers the noise from the streets and from your neighbors. In other words, if you have a decorative pond with waterfalls in your home, you always have a relaxing haven to escape from the hustle of the world.
As water evaporates from the pond and waterfall, its evaporative cooling effect provides homeowners a place to unwind during hot seasons. Instead of staying indoors with your air-conditioning turned on, you will actually save money by staying outdoors in your garden.
Decorative ponds and waterfalls also serve as a magnet to wildlife especially when plants native to your area are included in the overall structure. They provide not only sanctuary and bathing spots, but also food, water and a breeding place for dragonflies, frogs, insects and birds.
When your children see that wildlife thrives in ponds, it provides them environmental awareness and an opportunity to learn the importance of maintaining and preserving the ecosystem.
To build elegant yet strategically-built decorative ponds with waterfalls, home owners must consider the location that is accessible. The existing surroundings must also be considered in choosing the materials for building the structure so it would complement naturally with the style of your home or the landscape of your locality.
You just don’t build ponds of any size. The symmetry of your property determines the shape and setting of your ponds and waterfalls. The choice of ornaments and hardscape to be included should also blend with the overall landscape of your home.
Since water would also spell danger, the safety of your children must also be considered in building these structures. Building codes in your locality must guide you as to the depths of the pond. Moreover, the mechanical side of building the structure is complex yet very important. The pump system must be efficient to operate the waterfall.
