water feature

From fountains to gently flowing rivers, there are a wide variety of available water features available for purchase. Maryland homes are especially well suited to these with natural flora and fauna, as well as plenty available for purchase, that can flourish when provided with a water source. Here are a few reasons why the next big addition to your Maryland home should be a water feature.

Increased Property Value

One of the most obvious benefits of the addition of a water feature is the immediate increase in home value. While a water feature can be somewhat costly to build, homeowners can see a return of as much as three times the investment cost. Structures that are visible from the road will also attract potential buyers and lend your property immediate charm that will help your home stand out.

Peaceful Relaxation

The gentle sight and sounds of rushing water, coupled with the sight of resplendent greenery can make the cares and struggles of the day disappear. Imagine being able to come home and unwind in a jungle paradise of your own design. It is not just an idle fantasy either, there’s actually a fair bit of science suggesting that the sound of running water has a definite impact on stress and anxiety levels.

Added Life

The effects of adding a water feature to your Maryland home aren’t just limited to the structure itself, a water feature can turn your backyard into the kind of ecosystem necessary to support a wide variety of plant and animal life. Instead of putting up bird feeders, elegant avian creatures will flock to the sound of running water, or bathe in a birdbath. Similarly, you can surround a waterfall with trees increasing not only your home’s visual appeal and value, but also helping keep the environment green and the air oxygenated.
