Everyone Wants a Waterfall, They Just Don’t Know It Yet

Water is the source of life and people are automatically drawn to water and waterfalls. This is one of the factors that make backyard waterfalls and water features so popular. Everyone, will at one point, want some type of water feature or waterfall on their property. Why wouldn’t you?

Waterfalls add  elegance and romance to otherwise boring spaces. The sound that a waterfall emits can be very relaxing and mesmerizing. Imagine sitting on your back porch in the evening after a long day and staring out at a custom built waterfall that is illuminated with underwater LED lights. Now imagine sitting on your back porch in the morning sipping your daily cup of coffee. It just doesn’t get much better than that. It’s paradise right in your own backyard.

Garden Ponds Unlimited also builds unique water features known as Pondless Waterfalls. Pondless Waterfalls are basically just a waterfall that disappears into a recirculating reservoir that is full of rocks, gravel, pump and pump housing.  Pondless Waterfalls can be built to literally any size that a homeowner can imagine. The same styles of waterfalls can be created for them or ponds. We have even built very large water features at neighborhood entrances. The sky is the limit.

Homeowners may face varying obstacles on their property such as nearby traffic noise. Did you know that a custom built waterfall or water feature is the perfect solution for this?  We can build the waterfalls so that they have an echo chambers behind them to help intensify the sound and drowned out nearby traffic. This is also very helpful for property values. Any properly built waterfall or water feature for that matter, helps property values. This is where hiring an experienced waterfall builder will be key.

Another way that ponds and waterfalls can help customers is that they can replace that pesky patch of grass that you just can’t seem to get to grow.  You know, that patch underneath a tree that is too shady for grass but yet too sunny for shade grass. We can help with that. How about a Pondless Waterfall, pond or water feature?

Want a waterfall added to your existing swimming pool? We can do that also. Like we said, the sky is the limit. Come see us today to choose which style of waterfall you like best.

The Psychological Benefits of Waterfalls

For hundreds of years, water has been used for mental and physical treatments. Monks used water to help meditate.

In addition to the physiological benefits of water (like reducing muscle tension and joint stress, staying hydrated, and keeping skin moisturized, hair shiny, etc.), there are interesting psychological benefits.

According to scientific studies, negative ions increase the flow of oxygen to the brain which improves mood and reduces stress and anxiety. The sound of running water also aids in diminishing depression, increased mental clarity, greater emotional stability and an overall sense of well-being.

Water sounds have long been used in meditation to create a soothing atmosphere for our minds. Science suggests that the sound of running water can affect the rhythm of the neuronal “waves” in our brain, encouraging a more peaceful pace of thought.

Some scientists refer to the sounds of water as “white noise,” in which we can hear any number of things and we are able to let go of our thoughts and let the noise wash over us. In listening to these sounds during meditation, we learn how to be present in the moment and directly experience things as they are instead of getting lost in rumination.

One of the psychological effects we’re most aware of when we’re by the sea, lakes, or waterfalls is a feeling of awe. There’s just something about the beauty and vastness of a natural scene that has a profound impact on the way we feel. Science has even found that such feelings can lead to prosocial behavior like altruism, loving kindness, and magnanimity.

Some studies have even found that awe leads to greater life satisfaction. It fosters a sense that time is plentiful, and people donate more of theirs to charity while valuing experiences over possessions.

So, add more peace into your life by having us install a water feature for you and your family and have  the health benefits of having a water feature in your back yard.
