Relax to the Comforting Sounds of Your Daybreaker Landscapes Outdoor Fountain

Coming home to the sound of running water in your backyard fountain can be incredibly soothing, especially after a long day at work or stressful day of school. Whether you imagine a large, grandiose fountain or a smaller fountain perfect for tiny spaces, the pros at Daybreaker Landscapes can design and install them all.

While not all of us have a house positioned next to a creek or river, it is still possible to incorporate that calming running-water sound into your yards no matter how large or small that yard may be. Water features such as waterfalls, water gardens, bubblers, fountains, and more can provide that sound. One of these features, fountains, can be adapted to fit any size or shape of a lawn or landscape bed.

For a decade, we’ve been creating custom hardscape features for homes and businesses in Illinois communities such as Lake in the Hills, Barrington, Elgin, and more. Call us today at (815) 596-0070 to discuss your vision. We’re happy to provide an estimate for your dream design.

Reasons to Install a Fountain in Your Yard

Deciding to install any type of water feature is a big step for a property owner. These features are beautiful and will add a new dimension to the look and feel of your outdoor living space. While water features in general have benefits, fountains have particular properties that enhance any type of home environment. Some water features, such as ponds and water gardens, require a large space, but fountains can be adapted to an area of any size. Some reasons to install a fountain in your front yard, back yard, or landscape bed are:

  • Relaxing Environment: Studies have shown that the sound of running water can create a relaxing environment for people. This calm-zone relieves stress from all aspects of life. You can sit outside by the fountain, take some deep breaths, and work on some meditation strategies to clear your head. A clearer head can help you be more productive at work or with your schoolwork. Or, if you prefer, just zone out and let the tranquillity of the burbling water wash over you.
  • Increased Humidity: If the atmosphere is dry and you prefer a more humid environment, then a fountain may be able to provide that for you. The flowing water will add moisture to the air and benefit any nearby plants as well.
  • Added Ambiance: The sound of water, as well as the appearance of a fountain, adds a certain level of ambiance to your yard and your landscaping. No matter what material you choose for your fountain, it will give off an air of modernity, sophistication, and connection with nature.

Materials You Can Choose to Create Your New Fountain

Water fountains can be made from a diverse variety of materials, so whether your property is more traditional or has a more modern feel, it is possible to create a fountain that beautifully complements your property. Materials we can use for your new fountain include:

  • Stone: If you opt to use cast stone for your fountain, know that you will be getting an extremely durable fountain with a natural feel. Stone lasts for a very long time as long as it is properly maintained and cleaned. The porousness of stone requires specific cleaning each year to keep it in top condition.
  • Fiberglass: A fiberglass fountain will be more lightweight than stone, but it is a very strong material and does not break easily. Your fountain may be relocated more easily in the future if you opt for fiberglass, but know that it could be shifted by very strong gusts of wind.
  • Metal: A metal water fountain can be made from bronze or stainless steel, which makes for a sleek fountain with the potential for fine detailed work. The sound of water hitting metal may be even more soothing than other materials.
  • Ceramic: Generally, ceramic fountains are smaller as the base is made of pottery. This makes them a great choice for smaller spaces like a patio, apartment deck, or small landscape bed.

How the Fountain Installation Process Works

If you are ready to put in a new fountain outside, then the first step is to contact a hardscape contractor like Daybreaker Landscapes who will come to your property for an initial consultation. They will talk about your project needs, wants, and budget so they know what to plan for your space. Once they have all of that information in hand, they will write up an estimate for everything including the design and installation.

You will then need to accept that estimate before an installation can be scheduled. The team will then come out to install your fountain and ensure they get your final approval before leaving the job site.
