Water evokes a feeling of relaxation and serenity, creating a calming effect in people’s otherwise hectic lives. It’s the reason why day spas have water features. It’s probably the reason why the beach is such a popular vacation destination. And, it’s definitely the reason why water gardens have become so popular in homes and commercial properties.
Water gardens are not restricted to museums and Monet masterpieces. Commercial properties can benefit from the addition of water gardens too. A water component in your landscaping can act as a focal point, and introduce a sensory element that is enjoyable for your employees and clients alike. What’s more, the enhanced landscape will create greater interest for your business property.
Beyond mere aesthetics, a water garden is an aquatic ecosystem, made up of aquatic plants [specifically rooted floating plants, such as water lilies; marginal plants; submerged (oxygenating) plants; and floating plants]; fish and/or frogs for mosquito control; and decorative fountains and lights.
Maintenance is an important factor, though. Only with proper care will your water garden provide optimal enjoyment. The SFM Landscaping team of experienced professionals can help you determine the ideal maintenance plan. As always, our goal is to make your property look its best!
