Why Add a Water Feature to Your Outdoor Living Area

Custom Outdoor Water Fountain Feature

“To some, it’s just water. To me, it’s where I regain my sanity.” – Anonymous 

Just picture it…you’re sitting outside, sipping coffee or a cocktail and listening to the gentle sounds of flowing water. TOTAL. RELAXATION. Water features bring an element of tranquility that truly is the essence of Florida living.  

Our designers share why adding a water feature is an essential element when designing your custom outdoor living space 

 

Benefits of Having an Outdoor Water Feature 

Here are some other benefits you will enjoy when you have a water fountain or waterfall feature added to your backyard:  

Noise Blocking 

Live on a busy street? Surrounded by noisy neighbors? A water feature will help drown out any unwanted noise and allow you to peacefully enjoy your outdoor living space. A flowing fountain or streaming waterfall are terrific options for masking intrusive noise from close traffic or neighbors.  

Make a big splash with your backyard! Call SOL to start designing the outdoor area of your dreams complete with water fountain feature. We know you’ll love to entertain in the extension of your home.

Stress Reduction 

Let’s talk science for a second…studies show that listening to water significantly reduces stress levels – even if it’s just as little as five minutes!   

Why? Evaporating water produces negative ions. When we are around water, we inhale these invisible, tasteless, odorless molecules which are shown to boost moods and lower stress hormones. This is the number one reason why so many people head to the beaches, lakes, and rivers our area is known for, to relax!

Increased Property Values 

Best of all, you can really add to your property value! Florida homes that include custom elements tend to be valued higher than properties with little to no landscape design.  

Not only does installing a water feature increase your home’s value and appearance, but it also makes it more attractive to potential buyers – thus giving you an edge in a competitive market should you choose to ever sell
