The sound of moving water from a home waterfall would make you instantly relax 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, homeowners 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.
