Waterscapes Create Beautiful Backyards

Bench Story Water Feature

A few years ago I started social media management for a company. I never realized that it would change my life in so many ways. I’ve met some wonderful friends, learned a lot from them, and also found some new passions. Some of these passions were always there, but brought to the forefront through social media. Today, I would like to introduce you to one of my passions… Waterscapes for your backyard.

My attraction to waterscapes stems from my childhood. I grew up with a brook in my backyard and my neighbors had ponds. We spent our days playing in the brook and the ponds: jumping rocks; catching fish, tadpoles, frogs and salamanders; and, creating dams to form a small pond and filling the pond with what we caught. A large storm would destroy our pond taking our treasures downstream, so we would have to start the whole process all over again ~ wonderful childhood memories!

Today, you don’t need a brook in your backyard. Waterscapes come in many forms from flowing urns and Pondless® waterfalls to large ecosystem ponds with waterfalls and streams. There is something about babbling water and listening to natures’ calls that calms life’s stresses; brings life to parties; and, sparks the flow of thoughts and ideas.

I may no longer wish to catch fish and frogs, but I can dream of sitting by these waterscapes… who knows… one day. What better way to find peace and tranquility than to listen to babbling water and watch nature come alive around you… serenity!
