Water Gardens Tranquility

By: Daniel Roshard

If you have a spacious backyard you have probably spend considerable time debating what you should do with it. For some families it becomes a play space, essentially filled with climbing equipment, a sandbox and toys. For other families they want to utilize the space by creating an oasis and a refuge from the daily stresses of life.

Water garden can be the key to that retreat. If you have the space and the inclination you can create a water garden in your back yard that will become a focal point. A water garden can be either large or small and can even include a fish or two. It has been a known fact the water and especially running water have a soothing affect, from the ancient roman fountains to the indoor Zen pools and waterfalls, people have always liked to relax by water, not a surprising fact when you remember that humans are made, in part, by water.

Finding the water garden of your dreams may prove to be a serious task, with many different things to consider, you will have to put in some time for research if you want to get the most for your money. Many garden centers have displays of water gardens for their customers to see. If you see one there that you like you can inquire if they have the water garden plans for that particular design, try and build it yourself, or get the plans and find a professional to do it for you.

If you don’t have access to a specialized garden center consider visiting your local home improvement store. In the spring and summer months most have an area that focuses on gardens and accessories. They will generally have several different water garden plans for you to look at and choose from. The internet is also a good place to look for information about water gardens and what you need for them.

Once you’ve perused the water garden plans and chosen the one for you it’s time to gather together the supplies and get to work. It may seem like a daunting task at first glance but in reality with the proper equipment, some patience and some helping hands you can build your own water garden that you and your family will enjoy for many years.

If you are especially creative why not bypass the traditional water garden plans and design one of your own. Make it a reflection of your own personal taste and style. You can incorporate some of the ideas from water gardens you’ve already seen along with the vision you have. It will become a one of a kind masterpiece.

Water gardens are a wonderful thing, pleasing to eyes and calming the soul this can be your place to relax and forget about the troubles of the world, good luck finding and building your own water garden and I wish you and your family many happy and calm moment by your new attraction – the water garden.

Want To Improve Home Decor And Reduce Stress? Try An Indoor Fountain

By: Bill Urell

There are not many things as lovely to watch or as pleasant to listen to as the soothing sounds of an indoor fountain. If selected and purchased with care, and maintained properly, an indoor fountain will continue to give pleasure for many years to come.

Naturally, one of the most important things to keep in mind when selecting an indoor fountain is whether it goes well with your home decor or clashes with it. For example, a minimalist Chinese design will look out of place in an elaborate Victorian Style room, but it may go beautifully in an elegant modern room. A fountain in a room that doesn't suit it will stand out like a sore thumb and look out of place, not the effect you want to achieve! Select your fountain with your room in mind, and you'll save a lot of hassle and the need to redecorate down the line.

It is not necessary to seek out or purchase the most expensive fountain you can find, but you should avoid very cheap ones, unless there's a good reason for them to be so cheap (a well-known brand on sale at a store going out of business, for example). You should always make sure to get an indoor fountain with at least a one year limited warranty. You don't want to have to replace your fountain every six months, and if something does go wrong in six months, you at least want to know that you don't have to pay for replacing it. An indoor fountain becomes more than just a piece of room decor; it becomes part of the fabric of your life, a little piece of stability and tranquility no matter what life throws your way. You want one that will last and be pleasing to the eye and ear.

Lastly, a word about maintaince and care. Some fountains may come with care instructions; follow these carefully, to the letter. If your indoor fountain doesn't come with instructions for proper care, there are still some things that can be done to keep it working at its peak efficiency for a long time to come. Make plans to change the water out at least once every three months. If you have pets, or your house stays fairly dusty, it should be done every month. Clean the fountain itself every six months or so with warm water and mild dish soap. Above all, keep it free of debris. Floating flowers in it may be romantic, but if even one petal clogs the filter, it can be a pain to clean and repair.

Is a Water Fountain the Solution to your Decor Issues?

By: Julien Raynal

Water has an innate quality of bringing in serenity and peace. Water fountains are interesting and nice to watch, both for the children and the grown ups. Water soothes frayed nerves by its continuous motion, with no sudden jarring movement – unlike water falls that have variations in the volume of water flowing based on the level of water in the river that feeds them.

In fact there are a number of books on Feng Shui that suggest having small water fountains inside the home or in the lawns to bring in peace, harmony, and relaxation. Water fountains serve as good humidifiers in allowing water to evaporate and provide the environment with a cooler atmosphere. Water fountains are soothing and relaxing, possibly because they bring a constant flow of water, eliminating abrupt changes in the normal flow of the water.

Water fountains come in various designs and creative patterns. There are floor fountains, wall fountains, and desktop varieties of water fountains.

Large size fountains are great fun to watch. Some of the very nice and popular fountains are present in United States. For example, the water fountains in the Bellagio Casino of Las Vegas number more than one thousand and they are part a beautiful song and dance show every day. The fountains move and throw water in special patterns, their heights rise and fall based on the pitch of the songs. Another large size water fountain that is a pleasure to the eyes is the one in Chicago, called the Buckingham water fountain, which was presented by the English and is even maintained by them.

Interior wall water fountains can fill a room with a relaxing sound. These can be as small as a paper pad or as large as to occupy one whole wall. These normally adorn executive offices, lobbies, and homes. These come in various shapes and sizes as well as in different materials like glass, marble, cement, plexi glass and metals like steel or copper. The only requirements for these fountains are a source of water, strong wall support and electricity to circulate the water back to the top. These come in straight designs or in different shapes – either straight or using shapes like leaves or sea shells to get the water from top to the bottom.

Desktop water fountains are those that can adorn office desks, and create a pleasant environment compensating for the pressures of work life. Water fountains come with decorations that can enhance the surroundings, providing an interesting and sophisticated look using colored lights or angels. Staggered leaves allow a gradual flow of water. Pebbles allow water to seep through and sometimes can even glow in the dark. Such desktop or counter top water fountains can also be used for homes in kitchens, living rooms or bedrooms where they provide a good continuous flow of water and soothing sounds to enhance the peaceful environment of the house.

Desktop varieties of water fountains are relatively easy to maintain and clean. Basically the water level comes down, as it continuously evaporates and needs to be replenished. It would be good practice to clean the adornments like pebbles, copper containers, and small items placed for decoration purposes. If not well attended to for a long time, water fountains can form a green curtain of moss.

Achieving A Peaceful And Relaxed Home With Do-It-Yourself Indoor Fountains

By: John Morris

Water fountains in indoor settings have become quite a buzzword among home decorators and owners like you in the last few years. This is not surprising, since indoor fountains give you a relaxed and peaceful atmosphere, as the water quietly runs in the fountain. Stores can attest to the popularity of indoor fountains. A look at stores in malls and on the Internet results in a lot of indoor fountains being sold. But what happens if you can’t find your indoor fountain of your dreams in the malls or in the various websites? Do not fret. Actually, there are many of you that do not seem to find what they think are the right indoor fountains for them.

Having a beautiful and elegant indoor water fountain does not always have to be the same with what other people have just because you bought yours from a store or in the Internet. And, no, you don’t want to pay for a fountain with an extremely steep price just to avoid having a commonly owned fountain. Try doing it on your own. The sound of the trickling water from a fountain you did might prove to be more peaceful and relaxing than the mass-produced ones.

I. Build Your Own Indoor Fountain

If you can’t find an indoor fountain in the market that could match your personal taste, lifestyle, and uses, why not make your own? Making your own indoor fountain is cheaper than buying it in a store or online. Generally, making one would cost you around $40. There are a number of variations available in making your own water fountain, but the instructions in making one are very basic.

II. Materials

- for base, you could use a waterproof container
- aquarium pump that is submersible; easily available in garden centers or at fish stores
- copper pipe with diameter of half an inch
- easy-to-use pipe cutter that costs around $2.50 only
- silicone glue - when this dries up, the glue becomes clear
- two pieces of elbow joints
- reducer that goes on top of your pump
- t-bar
- a copper piece
- beautiful and appealing rocks which you will be using for your foundation to stabilize the fountain and make the foundation more sturdy

III. Building Steps:

1. Put the pump into your container

Since the pump hole is relatively smaller compared with copper fittings, you must add the reducer. By this time, you are prepared in putting the first arm of your copper foundation.

On the pipe’s outer edge, put some silicone. Then put together the pieces one by one. Before putting the top pipe over it, you must have some holes pre-drilled. You can pre-drill using a drill bit with a one-eighth-inch size. This will make your fountain have the perfect flow. You must remember all the time that the copper frame size should fit snugly into your container, allowing the water to freely circulate.

2. Check if its top part is aligned

The top part is aligned if the water perfectly flows right into your container. Expect that the final arm will be longer since the pump will elevate it. Place the joint first, as this will make the arm secured. Measure then the pipe. Cut down the excess part.

3. Keep it stabilized

Adding a number of beautiful and large stones should make the weight heavier. After putting the large stones, put some small river pebbles. And then add water.

4. Go From There

Now you have the basic foundation for your indoor fountain! From there, you can design it based on your imagination, for the look of your fountain is limitless and depends on how imaginative and creative you can get. For just starters, you could improve your fountain look by putting dried flowers and grasses. Arrange them. If you plan on installing a fountain right inside your kitchen, you might want this example. You could create your base foundation using a used or old copper pan. Flatten it using a hammer. Then suspend the flatware using copper wire.

Now You Can Discover the Best Kept Secret to Beautiful Gardens

By: John Savage

Garden ponds and fountains were once mainly for the very rich. Today, anyone can have a garden pond. A fountain or waterfall can be included almost anyplace--even if your "yard" is limited to a patio or balcony.

Adding water to your patio can be as simple as setting out a shallow dish of water for use as a birdbath. Any shallow container at least 6 inches wide and a half-inch deep will work. Pie pans, garbage can lids, or flowerpot bases work well in small spaces. Fill the container with clean water and wash it every day or two. The wildlife attracted to the water will depend on where you place the container. Containers set on the ground usually attract the greatest number of wildlife species, from birds and butterflies to squirrels and toads. Hanging birdbaths or ones on pedestals will be restricted to those creatures that can fly or jump high enough to reach the water, and give birds a chance to escape from neighborhood cats and other predators.

If you want to grow water plants--and perhaps add a fish or two--you can add a tub garden to your patio or yard. Many products are on the market today. Frequently, half whiskey kegs with plastic liners are used. Numerous plastic tub gardens are available in a variety of sizes and have the advantage of being lightweight and inexpensive. Small pumps can be added to any of these containers to allow for fountains or cascades of water. Moving water is pleasant to listen to and attractive to wildlife.

Here are some considerations before adding a small tub pond to your patio or yard.

If you want to grow water plants, choose a container that is at least a foot deep. While some water plants do well in shallow water, other species--including some water lilies--require deeper water.
Consider adding a variety of plant species. Depending on the depth of your tub, place pots of plants either on the bottom or on bricks to achieve the proper depth. Floating plants such as duckweed also can be added. Floating plants reduce the amount of sunlight that enters the water, which helps reduce the growth of algae. When adding potted plants, place a layer of stones on top of the soil before setting the pots in the water. This will help hold the soil in place and help prevent any fish from "digging" into the pots.
If you live in a cold climate, consider what you will do with the tub garden in the winter. Small tubs can be moved inside if a suitable location is available. Other tubs may need to be drained to prevent damage from freezing.
Caution: Use caution and take security measures if small children have access to your pond. Even small tub gardens can be hazardous. If you intend to have a fountain or waterfall, be sure a grounded electrical outlet is available.

Above all, have fun. Water gardens provide habitat for wildlife, but also can be an enjoyable hobby for you and your family.
