4 Benefits to Adding a Fountain to Your Garden

Water fountains bring tranquility and peacefulness to your garden.

They create an aesthetically pleasing environment. Also, the health benefits related to water features are remarkable.

Here are some of the noteworthy benefits of having water fountains for gardens:

  •  Air Purification – Water fountains create healthy negative ions. Negative ions purify the air by attracting allergens (pollen, mold spores, dust, animal dander, etc.) to each other. In essence, creating clumps of particles that gravity can then pull down out of the air.
  • Relaxation – Fountains can decrease stress and promote a relaxing environment. Moving water promotes calm and helps remove us from our modern fast-paced lifestyle.
  • Feng Shui – Good design around the fountain allows a good flow of energy. In Feng Shui, water is the symbol of wealth and prosperity.
  • Sound Therapy –  Falling and flowing water are good for the mind. Research shows that the sound of water promotes healthier moods. It also drowns out unpleasant sounds, like the constant hum of traffic, voices in another room, neighborhoods dogs, etc.
