3 Benefits of Adding a Water Feature to Your Landscape

Water features in your yard can be so calming and soothing. Just looking at water can help you destress and relax. They can also add a pristine, amazing look to your yard. Whatever your reason may be, our landscaping company at the Lake of the Ozarks can help you. When you are ready to start thinking out your spring landscape plans, consider adding a pond, fountain, waterfall, or any other water feature that has caught your fancy. Paradise Landscaping is here to give you 3 main benefits of adding a water feature to your landscape.


3 Benefits of Adding a Water Feature to Your Landscape


Benefit # 1
Attract wildlife to your yard.
Beautiful birds, deer, chipmunks, squirrels and several other types of wildlife may visit you if you add a water feature to your landscape. Sit back and enjoy being out in nature. Let the magic of your paradise landscape happen.


Benefit # 2
Increase your home value.
If you are looking to sell your home or you just want to make improvements to it, then consider adding a water feature. This can be a very appealing, eye catching attraction to home buyers, but also to guests you may have over to visit.


Paradise did an excellent job on my landscaping. They worked with my time frame and were incredibly helpful. I do not have a green thumb in any way and they took the time to teach me how to care for each type of plant. I thought one was dying a few days after it was planted and they came out that same morning to check on it. I had not been watering it enough so they explained what setting on the sprayer I should use and for how long. They have truly went above and beyond to "design my paradise." - Katie Royal


Benefit # 3
Bring the sounds of nature to your landscape.
The sound of natural water can be so soothing that some people play the "natural water sound" on their phones or other musical devices to help them sleep. Why not add this relaxing sound to your landscape? Sit out on your patio and enjoy the sound of nature!


"Your mind will answer most questions if you learn to relax and wait for the answer." - William S. Burroughs

FAQ's about Landscape Design

Here at Paradise Landscape, Irrigation, & Pool Maintenance, we stand by the motto, "Maintaining your paradise is our business." We understand that a lot of thought and creativity goes into planning for your perfect home landscape. Throughout that process, you may stumble upon things that you don't fully understand yet because you've never had your landscape professionally designed. Our landscape design company at the Lake of the Ozarks is here to answer a few frequently asked questions about landscape design.


FAQ's about Landscape Design


Q: Do I really need a detailed landscaping plan?

A: Having a detailed landscape plan can save you a lot of stress and anxiety down the road. Trying to wait until the last minute to get everything done may not be the best process in order to get your landscape looking like the oasis you’ve been hoping for and dreaming about.

Q: When the landscape design is created, is my input considered or is it fully done by you?

A:  Our landscape designer, Rick Harris says, “No landscape design (and therefore the planting of that design) is a custom landscape design without the input of the client”. We know that we can create a much better landscape design for our clients if we can talk to them and get their ideas of what they want.

Q: Other than a fence, what are some things that could be implemented to add more privacy to my backyard?

A: There are several things, other than a fence, that you can try adding to your backyard to gain more privacy. Here are a few examples:

Shrubs & trees
Tall hedges
Bamboo plants
A Waterfall



Q: Should I have a water feature in my landscape? If so, why?

A: There are many benefits to having a water feature in your landscape. It’s all about what you are hoping to enjoy from your new landscape makeover. Here are a few benefits that can come from having a water feature in your landscape:

The sound of running water can make for a natural, relaxing sensation and relieve stress.
Water features can raise the property value of your home.
A water feature can make your yard look larger in size due to its reflective properties.
Water features can block out unwanted neighbor noises.

5 Spring Landscaping Ideas for Your Home Paradise

It’s not too early to start thinking about what you want your landscaping to look like when Spring gets here. By giving yourself more time to plan for your landscaping in the Spring, you can put less pressure on yourself by not waiting until the last minute. Our landscaping company at the Lake of the Ozarks is here to give you a few ideas you can consider adding to your home paradise landscape.




Spring Landscaping Ideas for Your Home Paradise


Idea # 1
Try adding a tree.
Did you know that having trees near your home can actually lower your air conditioning bill in those warmer months when you are needing to feel cooler in your home? You can add a nice color and texture to your yard, simply by choosing the right kind of tree. Need help? Our professional landscaping company in Lake Ozark can help you make your decision.

Idea # 2
Add a patio to your backyard.
Patios can add so much value to your home. Plus, think of all the great memories you can make with your family and friends on that patio? The possibilities are endless, between the all of the barbeques, shrimp boils, picnics, and holiday parties you could have out there.

Idea # 3
Spruce up your yard with some outdoor lighting.
Add some outdoor lighting to your walkway or around any water features you may have. Not only is this an important safety feature, but it can look beautiful as well. This brings us to our next idea, a water feature.

Idea # 4
Add a water feature to your yard.
Try adding a pond, waterfall, or stream bed to your landscape. The sound of flowing water can create a nice "oasis" feel and bring a sense of relaxation. You can even try and mask the sound of neighbors or nearby traffic with it.



Idea # 5
Have your dream flower garden planted.
Bring some Spring colors to your backyard or front yard with a nice flower garden. Our landscaping experts can help you to know what the best flower garden designs are. Just to name a few Spring flowers/plants, you could try having tulips, cherry blossoms, peonies, camellias, geraniums, or garden roses.
