More and more people are considering installing a water feature to their property to enhance the beauty of their yard as well as provide a tranquil place for themselves and attract many native birds to their property. These water features also add value to the property when it comes to selling the property making it more attractive to buyers. Surprisingly it is very easy to arrange for an installation and it is very easy to maintain your water feature once it is installed.
The cost of the water features obviously depends on the size and complexity of the water feature, however there are many designs that can be incorporated into many property owners yards quite economically while still adding a great deal of value to the persons home. Home owners can choose from various designs such as ponds, waterfalls, and streams or a combination of all three. Some consumers will even opt for ponds that are suitable for maintaining fish in them all year round.
How to Go About Choosing a Water Feature
Selecting a water feature is really a combination of the space you have to work with, the features you are looking for and the budget you have to work with. The folks at Water Landscape Design Calgary have lots of pictures that customers can review to begin narrowing down the designs to something that meets their needs. They also have videos of water landscapes on this web site that they have completed which may help you decide the size and type of water feature that you would prefer.
Once you have finalized a concept they will commit the design to paper and also using ground paint map the location out on your property. This accomplishes a number of objectives. First of all this mapping will give you an idea of exactly where the landscape will be built. Coupled with the design, you may find it much easier to visualize where the water feature will be built and what it will look like once it is completed.
The second objective that is satisfied by ground paint is that it will also show the technicians exactly where the water landscape is to be built. This approach ensures that there is no misunderstanding in terms of where it will be built on your property.
Once you make any final adjustments and give the go ahead to order materials and begin installation, the team will proceed and provide you with a schedule and order all materials. Your water landscape will be built and all of the construction material cleaned up before the construction crew leaves.
What Maintenance is Needed for My Water Feature
Once your water landscape is built and you are enjoying the benefits of having a water landscape in your yard, there is really little maintenance required. Typically the water must be monitored to ensure that the PH levels are correct and that the filters are running properly. If there is any debris in the water, it should be cleaned out to avoid plugging the pump.
Depending on the number of plants that are in or around your water feature, there may be some that need to be trimmed after a few months. At the same time all debris is removed and the water tested to keep the water pristine.
Finally your water feature will need to be closed during the winter and reopened in the spring.
The folks at Water Landscape Design Calgary have designed a number of maintenance plans for consumers to consider based on the amount of work they want to take on. Consumers can chose to have one of our maintenance teams perform all maintenance or they can do it all themselves or somewhere in between these two extremes. You decide. Many people obtain a great deal of satisfaction when they do their own work.
