How a Water Feature Can Benefit Your Business
Water features are a great addition to spruce up any landscape and they can provide many benefits. You can increase your curb appeal with a water feature which can enhance and magnify the beauty of your landscape.
There are many options when it comes to water features, meaning there’s a perfect choice for each landscape. Here’s four reasons why a water feature is a great idea for your business’ landscape.
They Look Beautiful
Water features are eye-catching and can create an attractive focal point for your outdoor space. There’s a whole array of water features to choose from, including fountains, ponds, rain curtains, sconces and scuppers, laminar jets, bird baths, and bubblers. Different features will work better for your landscape depending on the type of attention you’d like to attract.
The addition of a water feature can encourage people who normally wouldn’t approach your business to stop and take a look, so they’re a worthy investment.
They Create Atmosphere
Your outdoor space is the first impression that clients will receive of your business before they even step foot inside, and so it’s important to create a welcoming and pleasant atmosphere.
It’s been shown that flowing water has a calming effect on the psyche, which has the potential to improve the quality of your interaction with the client if they can enter with a calm and relaxed demeanor.
The addition of a water feature can also encourage wildlife to frequent your landscape, bringing with them a natural beauty that passersby can take a moment and embrace, all the while bringing attention to your business.
They’re Easy to Maintain
Water features require very little maintenance and cleaning, despite the common belief that they do. Ponds and such only need cleaning out every 5-10 years and, unless they experience an unlikely clog, most features won’t require any attention for a long time.
You can perform regular cleaning to reduce the build of scum and fungi if you so wish, though it’s not necessary. Water features are very little hassle once installed, they’re just ready for your enjoyment.
They Can Boost Mental Wellbeing
Whether admiring it from the office window or enjoying it in all its glory outside, water features can have a positive impact on our mental wellbeing. The sound and image of running water invoke peace and tranquility, helping to clear the mind of clutter and negative energy.
The water can also purify the surrounding air, improving the quality of that which we breathe in. Fresh air can help to stimulate the mind and lead to more productive business transactions.
