Ponds & Waterfeatures

Ponds & Waterfeatures In the Ancient times, it was believed that water is a contributory factor in relieving one's stress - a form of relaxation, if you will. This is perhaps the reason why modern landscaping and architecture have incorporated ponds and water features in every landscape design.

Ponds actually are a form of water feature that is commonly present in an Illinois home as well as in commercial establishments. Other water features include water fountains, natural pools, container water features, streams, tub gardens, and bog gardens to name a few. Others opt to have water features inside their homes or buildings but others, usually install it in their yards and garden. For commercial establishments, water features adds more personality to their business not to mention that according to Chinese Geomancy, water, and flowing for that matter, brings luck and goodwill to the owners of the business.
