“Stay-Cation” design ideas for the backyard!

Your very own destination spot – your backyard!

Your home should be a place you want to escape to – not from

With many Americans choosing not to travel this year – due to the recent health warnings – we encourage you to invest back into your property instead, by creating your very own “stay-cation” you can still sit back, relax and enjoy any time off, from the comfort of your own home!

Your next Vacation Destination

The term “stay-cation” is trending. People are spending their money on improving their homes and less on traveling internationally this year. We suggest you “stay-cation” at home without compromising the benefits of a trip! Feel like you are on vacation by creating an outdoor space, you can de-stress, unwind and enjoy anytime of the year!

A typical pond costs about the same price as your next family vacation would, but you get to enjoy this expense for years and years to come…

Ideas for a personal “Stay-Cation” spot

Koi Pond (see above for before and after): Koi Ponds, also called “water gardens” are a man-made ecosystem body of water that are home to koi fish and turtles. Imagine stepping outside your home into your very own backyard oasis, complete with a beautiful water garden or koi pond. Sit back, relax, and enjoy the soothing sights and sounds of running water and beautiful koi fish. Feel the cares of the world slip away as you enjoy your personal backyard pond!

Pondless WaterfallWaterfalls are extremely low maintenance, energy efficient, and attract a variety of wildlife. Pondless waterfalls retain water within a hidden underground basin. Children love exploring nature in and around the waterfall. Whether you add a waterfall to your front or backyard, be sure to locate it near a window so the melodious sounds can be enjoyed from inside your home, too!

Bubbling Rocks and Basalt Fountains: A natural look paired with the sound of water. These can be added to any space in your yard, making them an ideal choice if you want a smaller water feature. Butterflies and birds will enjoy the refreshment your fountain brings to the garden.

Disapearing Urns, Vases, Spillway Bowls: A more formal and elegant look – options for urns are endless. These fountain work by pumping water contained in a large, in-ground reservoir up and through your fountain of choice, allowing the water to flow back into the reservoir.
