If you’re debating whether to add one, take a quick look at just some of the benefits of outdoor fountains and water features below.

Why Install a Yard Fountain or Other Water Feature?

  1. It’s a desirable yard enhancement that boosts curb appeal and increases the value of your home, whether you add it to the front or the back yard.
  1. The gentle sound of running water is highly therapeutic and great for reducing stress and anxiety.
  1. Just like bird feeders and birdbaths, water features attract birds to your yard to liven it up with more fluttering, color, and song.
  1. The sound of a water feature can mask less desirable sounds you may hear in your yard, like street noise or sounds making their way over from the neighbor’s place.
  1. One of the best benefits of outdoor fountains and water features is that they’re incredibly relaxing to look at and listen to.

  1. These are outdoor enhancements of great beauty that can be appreciated by anybody.

  1. Their diversity also means you can successfully fit them into any yard size, layout, or design.
  1. They add more ambiance to your outdoor entertainment space.
  1. Unlike birdbaths and other stagnant water, outdoor fountains and other enhancements with flowing water won’t attract mosquitoes or serve as their breeding ground.

  1. If you’re into feng shui, fountains and flowing water help restore balance and positive vibes in any indoor or outdoor environment (“shui” even means “water” in Chinese, and “feng” means “wind”).
  1. It’ll make everyone else just a little more jealous of your yard!
