The garden is the place where we want to be comfortable and relaxed as much as we can. We decorate them in the way that excites such feeling, bringing nature closer to our home. If peace and serenity are what you most want for your garden, a water feature is an absolute must. The cascading water produces calming sounds that relax our senses and they enhance the beauty of the whole place.
To change the ambiance of your yard, porch or patio you can add a reflective water feature where the water reflects the surrounding landscape, or you can incorporate a copper runnel feature, where the water will run along the entire length of the deck, bringing beautiful fluidity.
Natural tranquility and simplicity are characteristics of the Asian decorative style. This style often uses curves in its design. Many outdoor fountains have this curve appeal where the water falls directly into a small pool filled with curved pebbles, that way making some very interesting and peaceful sounds. The tiered fountains also produce unique relaxing sounds. You can install a stone water feature by your small backyard pond, and make few descending stone slabs where the flowing water will create pleasing visual and sound effects. If you have a larger stone wall, you can play with few sporadic multilevel waterfalls, each creating its own unique sounds.
Implemented mosaic glass tiles into the construction of a unique art fountain will produce other tranquil sound combinations with the same soothing effects for our body and mind. The key is in the combination of just the right elements that will help creating this calming noise. Bamboo spouts certainly are among these elements, bringing a beautiful exotic escape in your garden.
Consider unique art fountains to bring this Asian tranquility into your garden, and let your inspiration flow. Here are some other interesting ideas you can look at: http://www.hgtv.com/landscaping/amazing-water-features/pictures/index.html
