Conserve water with a water feature!
Did you know that a garden pond backyard waterfall can actually save on water usage for your landscaping. Sounds a little nuts doesn't it?
If you put in a pond as opposed to a lawn, you can save up to 50% on water usage. A water feature after initial filling will only need to be topped off regularly. A lawn on the other hand can use hundreds of gallons of water simply to keep it green.
Just another reason why a beautiful garden pond is a valuable part of any landscape. Plus don't forget about increased property values!
Best of luck.
