Each one of these water features brings a sense of peace and relaxation to your outdoor living space for you to enjoy, especially with the beautiful weather we're graced with in North Carolina. Keep reading to find out which water features are perfect for you!

1. Bubblers

Bubbler water feature installed for landscaping in Jamestown, NC.

A bubbler is a great option if you have a smaller yard but want to enjoy the relaxing sound of running water. They are incredibly versatile and low-maintenance, thanks in part to their small size. Bubblers don't require a pond or large reservoir to function. A pump typically circulates water from an underground basin to the bubbler that streams the liquid into another structure, creating this mesmerizing bubbling effect. Bubblers come in many different styles and can fit in just about anywhere to create a relaxing atmosphere in your yard.

2. Ponds

Pond water feature installed in landscaping in Walkertown, NC.

If you're aiming for a more natural aesthetic on your property and have the space for it, then you should install a traditional pond. This water feature will create a serene atmosphere in your backyard with its presence alone. You can even integrate fish and plants into it to mimic a natural pond. Add other water features to your ponds, such as bubblers and fountains, to elevate your property's aesthetic even further!

3. Pondless Waterfalls

Pondless waterfall feature installed in landscape in Greensboro, NC.

Pondless waterfalls are perfect for people with smaller yards who don't have room for a larger body of water, such as a pond or a reservoir. Pondless waterfalls provide the calming sounds of cascading water, and they make a fantastic centerpiece for your landscape. They work by recirculating water from an underground basin, and they come in all shapes and sizes, so you can customize them to suit your outdoor living space.

4. Fountains

Fountain added to landscape in Winston-Salem, NC.

Fountains can make the perfect addition to your property if you are looking to create a relaxing environment in your outdoor living space. A well-constructed fountain makes a statement on your property and can create something to admire while relaxing in your yard. Their presence can make your yard the go-to spot whenever you want to take a load off and unwind!

5. Water Gardens

Water garden water feature in Greensboro, NC.

A water garden can become the centerpiece of your relaxing landscape. Water gardens can house many aquatic plants to create a breathtaking vista right in your yard. You can add wildlife such as fish or turtles to take this water feature to the next level. Additionally, they are incredibly customizable, so they can comfortably blend into your property’s aesthetic. You could add other features like waterfalls, fountains, or bubblers to make your water garden stand out even more.
