The Dos & Don'ts of Adding a Water Feature to Your Landscape

The Dos

Do monitor your water pump.
Most water features can require a pump to operate properly. Check your pump regularly and make sure it doesn't overheat. Your pump makes your water flow and is the heart of your water feature. Making sure it doesn't burn out is essential.

Do plan, plan, plan.
When we say plan, think about the future. What is your purpose for this feature and what are you hoping to get out of it? Water features can attract water life, such as deer - so, if you are looking to bring beautiful wildlife into your backyard because you like to sit back and watch, then plan accordingly and put your water feature in an area that can be seen from where you typically sit in your front or backyard.

The Don'ts

Don't let your ponds leak.
Leaks in manmade ponds can be a mess! Prevent them as much as possible by calling your local landscaping professional for regular maintenance.

Don't forget about safety.
Do you have small children that live with you? Be mindful of this when deciding on a water feature for your yard as a manmade pond can pose a drowning risk to small children.

Don't awkwardly place your water feature in the wrong space.
Putting a waterfall in the center of your front yard can look awkward and not give you the relaxing feel it's meant to. Ask a landscaping professional advice when deciding where to put this beautiful new addition.
