Concrete water features are one of the hottest trends in landscaping these days.
A water feature creates a soothing environment in your home giving you a space where you can have a little peace of mind. But choosing the proper concrete water feature for your home can be a little tricky and you will need to consider some things before deciding on one
At Agundez Concrete we want to help you by giving you the right information before you start your concrete building project, that’s why we have made a list of things you have to consider before deciding on a water feature:
1. Consider the Style of Your Home
Make sure you choose a water feature that goes with the style of your home. Deciding on a water feature that’s too modern or too old fashioned for your home can leave you unsatisfied. You have to consider that any concrete project you do to your home can increase its value, so decide on one that will make it look as a whole, not some element lost and separated from everything else.
2. Consider the Size of the Area
Make sure you choose the proper size for a water fountain, if you have a large space we suggest you opt for a larger water feature, because going for a small one can make your yard look incomplete and vice versa.
3. Make Sure You Have a Water Supply Near
Water features require little water to function depending on their size, but they will need a water supply near them to make the filling process simpler and easier.
4. You Will Need Electricity
All water features need proper electrical wiring, and we say proper because you know that electricity and water don’t work well together. Improper wiring can put you and your family at risk, so try to keep it safe and get an expert to do the job for you!
5. Keep Debris Out of the Water
Water features are almost maintenance free, the only things you have to worry about is keeping debris out of the water, keeping the water level high, cleaning the foam if it forms over the surface of water and changing the water regularly to keep it fresh.
6. You Will Need Special Equipment for Fish
If you decide on having a water feature with fish in it you will need special equipment like filtration systems that will keep the water clean and oxygenated at all times.
